Pros

KHA has the mindset of rewarding those that perform. The company is run as a business that provides professional services. Because of the business based approach, the benefits KHA provides are outstanding and beyond what most of this industry provides. KHA looks out for the long term financial stability of its employees. They match the 401K at 4% and add profit sharing on top of the match. The KHA retirement program allows all employees to enter retirement with a great nest egg. Advancement is quick for those that perform. KHA rewards the performers with great promotions, bonuses, and advancements. Overall, a great place to work if you want to work.

Cons

KHA is not for everyone. KHA is an "extra effort" firm. It is expected that you put in the effort that is required to meet the high expectations of clients. Sometimes this means that you will need to work 40 hours in a week when things are running at a normal pace and sometimes you will need to work more when a client deadline is approaching. If you desire a steady 40hr/week job then KHA is not for you. If you want to be rewarded for being exceptional, KHA is a great place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to be willing to make exceptions to the promotion "policies" for the exceptional employees that should advance quickly.

    Pros

    Profit Sharing - 401K, Goal-oriented, entrepreneurial. Great teamwork environment and very talented staff. Opportunities for young staff to advance.

    Cons

    Extra effort expectations can be too high some times that make work/life balance a challenge. Workplace pace is very fast and rarely, if ever, slows down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on work/life balance.

    Pros

    The pay here is great because the company is privately owned and all profits are shared. You are compensated for your effort.

    Cons

    The amount of effort that is expected, or that you are guilt-tripped into giving, is ridiculous across the board. Forget about your life outside of work, family, health, hobbies, etc. This was the best place for me for the first 5 years when I was single and had dreams of being a millionaire. I feel that once you have a family and start to have goals outside of the office you will quickly grow out of Kimley-Horn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have taken more of an active role in hiring and training and pushing for work/life balance for your staff back in 2009-2010 when we started screaming for help. Now the atmosphere and moral are awful, staff is unmotivated, training is non-existent so staff is inefficient, and you're losing great staff.
