    Pros

    The senior level management seems to truly have the best interest of their staff and clients in mind. The company operates with a high-level of integrity and vision for growth. Their strategic planning process is one a major focus for them.

    Cons

    Paid time off isn't as good as it could be.

    Keep communicating.

    I worked at L. Robert Kimball & Associates (More than a year)

    Pros

    People who l worked was very kind and down to earth. Office location.

    Cons

    l was headhunted by a corporate recruiter and got a position, left work which l was there for 7yrs. A year after, there was no job coming. due to lack of work l got laid off, which l should have thought through better before l made my decision to move. Top heavy management and lots of unclear communication overall. Not recommend.

    Advice to Management

    There was no future direction. They hire and let go w no responsibility, which is hard to trust the company. They put priority on the Headquoter and other branches are out of focus. very disappointed the way they operate the office.

    Pros

    This is a stable and warm environment with a family owned company that consistently operates with core values in mind. They attract high quality staff and treat you with respect.

    Cons

    Compensation for duties performed is far below industry standard, no where near competetive. Benefits are minimal at best. Pressure to bill the client causes major sacrifice to the work-life balance. There is no true acknowledgement for the levels of effort that some staff put forth. They have a strong management team however not much depth in technical areas... too many chiefs, not enough indians. Staff is urged to step-up so often that the majority of the company is so busy doing someone else's job, that they cant do their own.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge your staff's efforts with competetive salaries and performance based incentives such as BONUSES or other profit sharing means. Staff loyalty and passion for the cause can only go so far when competing firms offer 30-40% more than your current pay rate. Don't wait for a letters of resignation to offer adjustments, by that point it's too late.
