I have been working at Kimley-Horn full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The talent level of the staff is unmatched. Regardless of discipline or which team you are part of there are smart people ready and willing to partner together to handle whatever comes along. One of the biggest strengths is that fact that every discussion starts by considering what is right for client. The company works hard to be sure that opportunity and compensation are available to all the staff.

This is a really good business, run by people who are always thinking ahead and planning for what is around the next bend.

Cons

First it is consulting. It's not for wimps. Perhaps not a negative but an important distinction - employees have to be willing to grow themselves. No company can do that for you. Team members will be challenged professionally, but they have to be supportive of peers in the process. Expectations are high, because the clients have high expectations for successful projects. There are lots of ways to measure success and achievement against goals at Kimley-Horn. To be successful you have to learn how those goals relate to each other and understand they are intentionally balanced.

Advice to Management

Continue to communicate decisions transparently. Continue the company's history of being owned by practicing professionals and sharing profits with all of the employees. Continue to teach the company's culture to incoming employees.

    I have been working at Kimley-Horn full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Kimley-Horn provides outstanding opportunities to grow professionally. Employees are given the support, encouragement and resources to be great consultants and trusted advisors to their clients, not just engineers, planners or designers. Because of these opportunities for professional growth, as well as outstanding benefits and a commitment to sharing the firm's financial success with all employees, Kimley-Horn is able to recruit and retain amazing employees. This includes new college hires all they way to seasoned practice builders.

    Cons

    The planning and design business is tough in general, and Kimley-Horn has high expectations of its staff to provide outstanding client service and to grow in their careers. This requires extra effort, and is not for everyone.

    I have been working at Kimley-Horn full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The true value of the company is found in all the benefits outside of salary, such as bonuses, insurance, profit sharing, and a sharing office culture. The more you contribute, the more you receive. Most are given the freedom and encouragement to explore new and better ways to further their career and the success and profits of the firm.

    Cons

    The culture and environment make work-life balance a challenge. The flat organization is not good for someone who places great importance on titles. The consensus building process to make decisions can be slow and frustrating.
