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

    Pros

    The firm is about to add a new CEO, which will be the result of a rigorous search and qualification process. I think the Board of Directors, including some stellar outside members, is very strong. The firm is definitely at an inflection point and I believe we are going to emerge from these changes a stronger, more dynamic place to work. One of our best assets is a core of loyal clients who bring us a wide variety of technical challenges.

    Cons

    There is change fatigue (culture/morale), but I believe many employees have decided to embrace the challenge. Some strong staff members have resigned recently - but those of us who are committed to make it work will help to pull us through this transition.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the line on non-essential changes to allow the new CEO to be effective.

    I worked at Kleinfelder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are generally pretty nice, engaging, and enjoy working with you. Good events for employees outside work.

    Cons

    Typical work-life balance with consulting job. 60 hours one week, nothing to do the next. Slow promotions and advancement

    Advice to Management

    Find more work (which is easier said than done)
