    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some fabulous people work there -- high potential for mentorship and responsibility
    Work flexibility is high
    Opportunities to pursue what is interesting, as long as it relates to utility consulting
    Some folks are very passionate
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Not enough people are good or passionate
    KEMA is the B-leagues of consulting (in the U.S.)
    Compensation well below market in the bay area
    Only metric that matters is billability
    Some horrible people are managing projects and they are sometimes hard to avoid
    Morale has been declining for the past year (2011)

    Advice to Management

    Time to start bidding jobs more smartly. Management needs to clearly define what jobs they will bid and what margin is needed in the bid. Dropping the hammer on billability and cost overruns destroys the morale, so bidding jobs better is the missing third leg of the stool.
