I worked at Kimley-Horn and Associates full-time

Pros

Excellent coworkers, interesting and challenging projects, and generous profit sharing (when business is good).

Cons

Long hours is the norm, and the pressure to always be billable can create stress. The company is very focused on the bottom line, so expect layoffs when business is slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grow smartly instead of greedily.

    I worked at Kimley-Horn and Associates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You will learn a lot and most people are pleasing to work with.

    Cons

    They implement a "Utilization (UT) ranking to determine your efficiency, which makes no sense! Also, If there is "no work" for an employee in her/his particular office, be EXPECTED to transfer to another of the 59 locations in the country, for an undermined time...They will tell you that the transfer would be for "a few days..." But I've know people that have transfer for almost a year!!! Really hard to try to have a family and work here.
