    I worked at Cardone Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was a great company in every way except leadership. Most leaders were not qualified educationally and technically in leading the relevant department. How can you lead a department when you don't know abcd about that field or work? Those leaders made working engineers life miserable by monitoring everything they do because they couldn't do what they did and monitor times etc. So now it's failing, what did you expect? Leadership was never honest, pacified employees like they didn't knew reality.

    Cons

    Incompetent and unqualified leadership. Treat employees badly.

    I worked at Cardone Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits while I was there. They were just purchased by an investment firm though, so I'm not sure if that will last. The long term employees were great. It was the people that made this a great company.

    Cons

    This used to be an amazing company with high sales, a great reputation, and an even stronger corporate culture. Over the years, this has waned. Cardone ran into some trouble in recent years, including mass layoffs for the last several years in a row, leaving a skeleton crew behind. The company was on the mend, and those of us remaining were excited to see things turn around... and then the Covid-19 virus hit. The company just had another mass layoff, (including me) and I'm fearful they will never recover. It breaks my heart, because this was a company started by a man in his garage, that became a multi-million dollar powerhouse. When I started 20 years ago, I felt like a member of the family. Now everyone is a number waiting for a phone call telling them their time is up. Heartbreaking to be gone, and even more heartbreaking for those left there to try to keep the company afloat.

    I worked at Cardone Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    10 years ago it was a great company. People cared, CEO cared, true family atmosphere. Today, just another mediocre company to work for.

    Cons

    Present CEO and Sr Leadership have lost the original vision of the company and unfortunately it's at the expense of employees. People in factory, warehouses and offices are worked to death. Customers are leaving.

    I worked at Cardone Industries for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice company with great people willing to help me adjust to the company. There are some very innovative people at this company.

    Cons

    Like to hold on to employees for too long, and some employees are virtually untouchable and cannot be fired after a certain time. This leads to having to deal with essentially incompetent co-workers

    I worked at Cardone Industries

    Pros

    Has the ability to be a great company if they would actually practice what they preach.

    Cons

    If your high school started a company this would be it unorganized and poor management all over. Petty people with fragile egos.
