    Pros

    Kimley Horn is a firm where you are rewarded for your efforts. You are surrounded by people who are willing to work as hard as you. You are encouraged to build your own practice and to do what interests you. You were also very well rewarded for your successes.

    Cons

    You're rewarded for your own successes but that also means you have to put in a lot of effort. Kimley Horn expects extra effort.

    Advice to Management

    The success of the company comes from the entrepreneurial spirit of the employees. Don't let growth of the company hinder that spirit.

    I have been working at Kimley-Horn full-time

    Pros

    Company's core purpose is to see its employees flourish and that is 100% true. The practice builder model allows project managers to pursue the work they are most passionate about. For those supporting these individuals, there is a similar entrepreneurial spirit... everyone has the opportunities to build their own 'practice' within the firm

    Cons

    People work hard here.. sometimes at the expense of work-life balance. It is an intense, fast-paced work environment, and that is not for everyone.

    Pros

    Yes, it is a lot of hard work and long hours sometimes, but the employees are great and it is more of a help each other environment rather than suffering for long hours. Even with long hours you have the flexibility to arrive when you want, leave when you want as long as you meet your goals and deadlines.

    Cons

    Long hours are a reality, but it is just part of the consulting world. If you want to be successful you need to really work hard
