    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cardno full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of the people at the company are friendly and fun to work with. Lower level managers are friendly and approachable, and seem to genuinely care about their employees.

    Cons

    Management is completely disorganized and has a high turnover rate. Employees are often assigned to jobs above their qualifications with little supervision by a qualified coworker. In my opinion this company values individuals who will pretend they know what they are doing over more qualified individuals who are honest about their limitations. Also, receiving an email every 2 weeks about less than anticipated quarterly profits and layoffs does not facilitate a positive work environment. Finding a new job was the best career move I ever did.

    I worked at Cardno full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fairly good background in ports and harbors within the USA. Some good references to former clients when putting together proposals for new work. Can work from home since the central office is small (staff)

    Cons

    Mainly Government contracts - therefore risky and little room for aggressive pricing of consulting services Ownership is a venture capital firm, focused on profits which are never big enough . Company seems to be pruning itself for sale (2019) based on conversations with former employees Little interest in exploring markets outside the USA
