    I worked at Kimley-Horn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. A firm full of highly intelligent engineers and professionals who really do love their work. Positive teamwork environment and communication all throughout the country. The firm does well in staying connected with other offices in different regions.

    Cons

    Work KHulture is too much. There’s a big emphasis on getting to know everyone; almost as if your promotion and your ability to grow depends on it. Very toxic, almost KHult-like company culture. Also, if you’re not extroverted and not willing to engage in small-talk daily, don’t expect to fit in. Also, preaching that you’re an “Extra-Effort” company does not justify the fact that you automatically expect individual to work 46-48 hours a week without compensation. UT is also very frustrating. Typical analysts can expect to have a UT goal of between 88%-96% depending on when you start. Having a 96% UT goal is ridiculous, because that only leaves you with a 4% remaining percentage for meetings, trainings, sick days, holidays, vacations, etc. You essentially have to work more hours to make up the hours you spent on PTO to meet your goal. Keep in mind, 4% of a typical work year, if we’re assuming a typical 40 hours/week job, equates to about 84 hours a year. 84 hours a year for meetings, trainings, sick days, holidays, vacations, etc. That is less than 2 hours per week for a year. I understand that working a salary job will often have you working over 40 hours a week, but UT goals and “Extra-Effort” makes it difficult to enjoy working overtime especially if you know you can’t take time off without making it up.

    Advice to Management

    Respect different personalities in the workspace. Also, provide more support and encouragement towards a healthy work-life balance. Being profitable is great and I understand Kimley-Horn is looking to grow within the coming years, but also be more attentive when it comes to overworking your analysts.
