    KCI is one of the best employee owned multi-discipline engineering company

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsYou will never out of work if you go out looking for one. The upper management supports anybody who wants to explore other type of works because they understand the evolution and diversity in the workplace. Anyone can become a project leader. KCI is ISO 9001:2008 Certified. Employee stocks are going up higher each year.

    ConsThey don't use the traditional ranks or positions which is confusing to a beginner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep us the good work. Give us the orders and we'll be delighted to do it for the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for

    Inspector (Former Employee)

    ProsProfessional, safety oriented company. Everyone takes their job seriously. But they are not uptight and stuffy. My manager always listened and took any issues seriously, and responded in a positive way.

    ConsBenefits could be better. Only 6 paid holidays. And at times, we would be forced to take paid time off to cover holidays where we were unable to work on job sites due to state restrictions.

    Advice to Senior Management6 paid holidays is not really enough. 10 is a more appropriate number of days.

    Been a very positive experience

    Construction Management (Current Employee)
    Centreville, MD

    ProsManagement allows you to do your job. Direction is given and employees that are self starters get ahead in the program.

    ConsNo cons that I can think of. Appears there are a large number of long term employees which tells me that retention is important in maintaining a top notch company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep communication lines open at all times. Communication prevents errors from happening and stops finger pointing that creates a low morale.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company IF you can get in with the upper eschelon.

    Inspector (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) is something you usually don't get a chance to involve yourself in, and KCI has a great ESOP program, 100% vested in 5 years. Large firm, regional presence, lots of work opportunity.Good people, if you are proactive and seek interaction.

    ConsEasy to get lost in the weeds unless you prove yourself. The different disciplines rarely interact with other disciplines, almost creating High School cliques.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow appreciation to the labor force that is keeping you in business. Some managers have gotten an unapproachable attitude, creating strained relationships.
