I have been working at Kimley-Horn full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I have been very satisfied with KHA. They are very willing to support students right out of school to integrate into the team quickly and always willing to teach new things and give more responsibility. The benefits are very good; the 401k plan matches 4% like everyone else, but they also do profit sharing which can be as much as 16% of your salary. On top of that you get an annual bonus, plus a mid year cost of living bonus! This company is going to take care of you, but you do have to work hard as well.,,,give to the company and it will give back.

Also, for young people the leadership opportunities are endless if you show an interest in it. I am so happy I choose Kimley-Horn!

Cons

You are going to spend a lot of late nights and a lot of emphasis put on "UT" which is utilization...percent of time you are billable to a client. If you have a family it can be tough to balance your work and home life, but its certainly possible.

Advice to Management

Keep up with the employee recognition through profit sharing bonus programs!

    I worked at Kimley-Horn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great career opportunities if you put in the effort. It was obvious what you needed to do to move up within the company. I like the structure of a more corporate company, but still felt that I got the family feel of a smaller company within my office.

    Cons

    Don't have an open door policy. I felt that some things were very secretive when they shouldn't have been. I didn't like that you typically had one project manager and didn't get very many opportunities to work with other project managers/teams.

    While there were many career opportunities, they often involved long working hours. It was hard to achieve a great work/life balance there.

    Advice to Management

    Give younger staff more opportunities to work with multiple project managers and teams.
