    Solid career path with opportunities to work with leaders and innovators in key industries like Energy and Chemicals.

    Director/Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsProvides opportunities to work with C-Level clients on interesting and challenging projects in an international / multi-cultural environment. A "small family" atmosphere where everyone cares about the job that they do and helping each other succeed. Great training programs and continued education, long-term career path.

    ConsNot a huge company so lots of multi-tasking, deadlines can be high pressure and sometimes there is a lack of internal resources. Business can be unpredictable, extreme highs and lows. Many home and virtual offices in different countries make communication a challenge.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Challenging, stimulating career with a team of dedicated, talented individuals

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsKline offers friendly and collaborative professional atmosphere. Working at Kline offers the chance to build relationships with global business leaders in the industries served and assist them with key strategy for business improvement. Very exciting opportunities; each individual has the platform to shine!

    Conschallenge sometimes leads to long hours to get the job done right, working in virtual offices around the world, we have to make a conscientious effort to keep the flow of communication and organization at its best. This can be challenging at times.

    Great work/life balance and interesting work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are several perks that I have seen with Kline, noted below:
    Access to Kline Senior Leadership – Kline is a non-hierarchical organization, all levels of leadership are approachable and available at any time for a discussion, and your ideas are heard
    Flexibility - management understands the need for work/life balance and believes that there is give and take, as long as the work gets accomplished
    Client Access – Firm cultural belief that whoever does the work/research earns the right to present it to and interact with the client
    Upward Movement – Promotions are merit-based, not need-based or time at level
    Rapid Knowledge Base Development – Work across industry and functional practices - good variety of projects, clients, and teams within the Kline organization (typical projects are around 3 months)

    ConsHas the typical challenges of a small company
    - low purchasing leverage for healthcare and other benefits
    - smaller external budget for IT, training, etc. than larger firms (but good support and internal initiatives)
    - less policies and formal processes established an in place than competing firms (less structured)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Kline is clearly an employer of choice

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsKline is a well respected industry leader in both market research and management consulting. It is unique in that all levels of employees gain incredible exposure and experience to both clients and Kline management while working in a collegial and supportive environment. At Kline, you are not judged by face time in the office, rather, results. They respect and model work/life balance - which is very difficult to find in any company, especially in this industry!

    ConsI have not experienced any negatives working for Kline.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't change a thing!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting work, great people and collaboration, and excellent credentials in eyes of clients. Having a publications business as well as a consulting business gives a tool hat many firms have to go outside for; consistent contact with clients due to those studies also provides benefits to the consulting team.

    ConsSome seniors don't pull their weight and don't engage well with juniors but this is not uniform. Sometimes lacking tools that larger firms have
