"Quite a friendly workplace but the higher-ups need work."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Friendly, personable, but focused employees that know how to separate work and personal life.

Cons

Management and the higher-ups tend to clog the process of projects and work that we had to do.

Advice to Management

Hold quick meetings or 1v1 with the employees to communicate more on the issues that I listed. Or maybe just open a channel of communication between employees and management in order to discover the root of the problems faster and more efficiently.

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

    Pros

    Using the "One company" approach to business leads to using valuable assets throughout the company (nation) to work on a variety of different projects and learning new skills.

    Cons

    Using the "One company" approach to projects means that there is a lot more travel involved than other regional firms of comparable services.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management: Take into consideration that lower level employees need supervisors that they have met and worked with before so that reviews and raises are not base soley on a numeric review!

    To Project Management: Use your head when estimating projects; or if you don't have a thorough field beckground, rely on someone who does to aid in the actual estimations!

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

    Pros

    Flexible daily work hours
    Encourage community involvement

    Cons

    Poor compensation
    Reluctance to explore new clients - Ingrained thought that certain clients will always be there, even when evidence strongly suggests otherwise.
    Extremely low value of current employees - Management seems to view people as easily replaceable parts, and almost never use the word "employee" or "person," even in in-person meetings.
    Poor support of career growth if it doesn't help the company out at that moment. This leads to issues when they pass on potential clients because they don't have people who can support the client, though there were people who wanted to learn those skills previously.
