    Lots of resources but ultimately your team affects your experience

    Sep 8, 2020 - Structural Design Engineer in Seattle, WA

    Pros

    Lots of company resources. Seattle is HQ so there are plenty of engineers and resources however it can also be overwhelming if you're starting out since they're so many resources!

    Cons

    Some PMs were great, some okay, and some not so great. KPFF has a ton of resources but ultimately the team that you work with = satisfaction that you get out of work. Lack of communication with the PM can result if newer engineers feeling frustrated, and going down a rabbit hole. I would encourage younger engineers to start conversations surrounding expectations if their PM/PE doesn't take the initiative.

    Over good company to work for

    Oct 5, 2020 - Project Engineer - Structural in Irvine, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Comp time is huge - anything over 40 hrs you work goes into your comp time bank, which you can either cash out or use as additional PTO. Friendly environment, good benefits, wide variety of projects.

    Cons

    Depending on how much work is coming in, sometimes you can get stuck doing the same kind of work. Bonuses tend to be low relative to other companies in the industry.
