Overall, a pretty good place to work. The people are friendly. The benefits are great. There are 11 paid holidays and a pretty standard PTO scale based on seniority. Employees are permitted to work from home twice a month with manager approval, and there are flexible scheduling options to allow for a great work/life balance. Ongoing training is also offered which is a perk, and there are programs for tuition reimbursement.
I wouldn't say this is a particularly "fun" office atmosphere. Sure, there's a room with a beanbag chair and a Foosball table, but I have never seen anyone actively use either for fear of judgement. The tone of the corporate office is very serious, almost morose, which can be great for productivity, but not for morale. The other major downfall is the lack of push for change. The company seems to be set in it's ways and should start becoming more flexible to expand the company and help attract top talent in the future.
The leadership team is fair and friendly and seem to genuinely care about the business and the employees. Most managers follow this lead and are collaborative and understanding. There are some who are more difficult to work with, but you will find that at any company.
All in all, the good outweighs the bad and at the end of the day. For this reason, I would recommend working at Ardex!
