I worked at Kimley-Horn and Associates full-time (less than an year)Pros
You get to work with some very talented people and have many excellent resources at your fingertips. There are opportunities for advancement if you are willing to put in the time. Training brownbag lunches almost every week with lunch provided most of the time.Cons
Depending on your ranking, you must remain over 40-44 hours billable each week in order to take time off (including holidays) and still meet your quota at the end of the year - essentially you don't have paid time off because you work for every hour you take. Office activities or "fun" events, training events, and a good amount of meetings are obviously non billable so plan on putting in at least 50 hours a week to meet your quota and upwards of 60 if your busy (you most likely will be very busy). Salary is based on an internal ranking system and not on the value you bring to the organization...Advice to ManagementAdvice
It's time, cost and quality - you get to pick two and demanding for all three is just being greedy... share the wealth or give real paid time off...Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Kimley-Horn and Associates in December 2014.Interview Details
I submitted my application online as well as attend info-sessions through my college. Through the info-session, I was able to talk to the recruiter and senior engineers. After less than a month, there was a quick phone interview to set up an in-person interview. It was followed with two rounds of in-person interviews that were about 1.5 hours each. Each round consisted of 45 minutes of traditional 1:1 interview followed with a casual 45 minutes interview over coffee.Interview Questions
