QAQC Project Administrator (Current Employee) –  Allentown, PAApril 30, 2015
Very "big boy" environment. However a little too much where some people take this advantage to a fault. Also with the expectation of teaching yourself everything with practically zero training, while I was able to get by it becomes impractical when the majority of employees need help with nearly everything with no formalized training or guidance for daily tasks. Love the work life balance though.
Pros
Work Life Balance
Cons
Dealing with highly paid workers who can barely work a computer or type.

Good company, no complaints I learned alot. There are not alot of employees so you find yourself multitasking and wearing multiple hats from time to time.

Great Company
Material Coordinator, Power Group (Current Employee) –  Northbrook, ILSeptember 24, 2013
Help to manage the materials to build the Devers-Palo Verde No.
2 (DPV2) transmission project. The project will primarily consist of the
construction of new high-voltage transmission lines in an existing transmission
corridor. DPV2 will help bring vast renewable and conventional generation from
the solar energy rich areas of eastern Riverside County to the power grid, which
will assist California in meeting its aggressive renewable energy goals of 33% by
2020.

Interesting and supportive team.
Logistics Regional Manager, Power Group (Current Employee) –  Midland, TXMarch 4, 2013
A typical day at work you spend planning and preparing against the schedule of the concrete pouring crews. Managing the foundation schedule in order to coordinate steele deliveries and Hardware deliveries. Management for Kenny Construction is used in a Project Management compacity. My co-workers are positive and very supportive and the team effort is remarkable. The hardest part of the job is that benefits change from project to project. You may not receive per diem or trips home pending on what project you are managing. The most enjoyable part of the job is team work and /or working as a team and mentoring.
Pros
per diem and trips home
Cons
per diem and trips home change depending on what project your on.

Sr Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 13, 2013
The Kenny family are entirely inept managers. They indulge themselves at the expense of the business. A sad place to work. They do provide free lunches on Friday, but, who cares?
Cons
inept management, shortsighted, frequent lay-offs

Material Coordinator, Power Group (Former Employee) –  Northbrook, ILSeptember 21, 2012
There is no typical day at Kenny. The learning curve is vertical and you have to produce immediately. The hardest part of the job is dealing with personalities .

Dont seek work here - even if you are broke
Senior Level Staff (Former Employee) –  Northbrook, ILJuly 13, 2012
This company will shut down or will be sold to another company in the very near future.

They have laid off hundreds of good people including senior level staff. They have retained bad staff who are instrumental in the fall of the company mainly estimators who come up with estimates which are sometimes 50% higher than the winners.

This company is not at all competive or has no idea of the competetion.

They have laid off low level staff who have nothing to do with why the company is failing. They have laid off dedicated people who had served the company for more than 20 years. Some of these laid off people have died due to stess. How will a 60 year old experienced personnel going to find a job in today's market? The management is ruthless and in the surviving mode.

The management is totally clueless. The next generation of this family owned business has no management experience or knowledge of the business.

There is no career advancement, there is no money for any training, there is no place for growth.

If you want to live in a daily fear of being laid off, go work at Kenny. Believe me, do not go here if you want to waste your career.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
company is going down very quickly, the management is in surving mode, no growth, no business to support the staff

Uninspired and fractured management
Project Manager, Power Group (Former Employee) –  Wheeling, ILMay 23, 2012
Kenny Construction Company is a dysfunctional family operated company. If one department shows initiative all other departments attack the successful operation. The only successful managers are those not related to the Kenny family. The current generation of Kenny's are ill equipped to manage a once great company. If you are newly employed at Kenny be sure to keep your resume' updated and your network working.
Pros
adequate compensation & safety program
Cons
inept management
