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

Pros

You will learn a lot and most people are pleasing to work with.

Cons

They implement a "Utilization (UT) ranking to determine your efficiency, which makes no sense! Also, If there is "no work" for an employee in her/his particular office, be EXPECTED to transfer to another of the 59 locations in the country, for an undermined time...They will tell you that the transfer would be for "a few days..."
