I have been working at Kimley-Horn and Associates full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The talent level of the staff is unmatched. Regardless of discipline or which team you are part of there are smart people ready and willing to partner together to handle whatever comes along. One of the biggest strengths is that fact that every discussion starts by considering what is right for client. The company works hard to be sure that opportunity and compensation are available to all the staff.

This is a really good business, run by people who are always thinking ahead and planning for what is around the next bend.

Cons

First it is consulting. It's not for wimps. Perhaps not a negative but an important distinction - employees have to be willing to grow themselves. No company can do that for you. Team members will be challenged professionally, but they have to be supportive of peers in the process. Expectations are high, because the clients have high expectations for successful projects. There are lots of ways to measure success and achievement against goals at Kimley-Horn. To be successful you have to learn how those goals relate to each other and understand they are intentionally balanced.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to communicate decisions transparently. Continue the company's history of being owned by practicing professionals and sharing profits with all of the employees. Continue to teach the company's culture to incoming employees.
