    I have been working at HKS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with HKS for a while now and I love the freedom you are given to take on new initiatives and make your job what you want it to be. The CEO encourages an entrepreneurial spirit and it shows with the specialized groups and offerings they have. Employees can participate in an exchange program where they live and work in another HKS office in another part of the world. Or they can get involved with highly specialized teams in research, computation or sustainable design. But what I like most are the people at HKS. They have truly become a family to me and it's a place I want to stay.

    Cons

    Parking is pretty rough downtown. I wish parking benefits were offered to everyone instead of just titled employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging the type of leadership you want to see and develop those people. And keep weeding out the bad. A few bad managers can really tarnish the experience for people on their team.

    Job Captain Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HKS (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Talk to a manager during a networking event who then connected me to HR for an interview. The interview was straight forward asking me about my experience and expectations. They were hiring and needed more people so it wasn't very long or involved.
