    Pros

    Used to be a very employee orieniented company that allowed you the freedom to be innovative and allow for professional growth. Problem is it is all used to be.

    Cons

    Definate old boys network where if you aren't from California or in with the boys you will go nowhere, allow incompetent managers to remain in place way too long, allow talent to walk out the door, are more interested in doing it the Kleinfelder way instead of doing it the right way, has gone downhill as they have expanded. I really question how some of their offices stay in business. I think they are more worried about having dots on a map than actually operating good offices.

    Utilization-Felder. Like a molting snake, Kleinfelder sheds its skin often with a "new company structure."

    Pros

    Giving my 2-weeks.

    If you're good at kissing ass, you'll love Kleinfelder. Just keep singing the praises of the "new company structure". Say an enthusiastic YES, no matter how often. This is key to getting on the inside track to the good ol' boys club.

    Cons

    "Share some of the downsides of working at the Kleinfelder Group."

    Hmm, where do you start? Seeing the admins, enginners, clients and techs getting punked at every turn? Dealing with a stifling bureaucracy that makes it nearly impossible to get work? Getting paid 1/2 to 1/4 of what similar engineering skillsets make in the industry? Attending meeting after meeting while hearing management whine, cry and wail about utilization?

    Advice to Management?

    Kleinfelder management does not engage in "listening", so what's the point of offering any?
