Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJune 1, 2017
Being a large Environmental firm you would think it would be a stuffy place to work but just the opposite.

The management team is there to help and the advancement is available at every turn.

Very stressful and little to no support
CAD Draftsman (Current Employee) –  Denver, COMay 21, 2017
In few words...
Right from the start of employment, there is very little to no support on all levels of the management. Don't look for raises or bonuses ever. They only take care of management. Work your butt off for nothing. Steer clear!
Pros
healthcare benifits
Cons
everything else

Productive Field Work
Field Technician III (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCFebruary 8, 2017
A typical day would be driving in a company truck to a job site at various times to do concrete testing or soil bearing capacity testing.

I learned how to test concrete with the equipment that the company supplied.

I heard a rumor that management lost a bid for a major concrete pour job. However, from my experience it has been good.

Good environment to work in. Office location is in a comfortable spot.

The hardest part was adjusting to the times of being on site for the jobs.

The most enjoyable part was actually seeing a finish project being finished by what we did as a team.

Senior Leadership is the problem
Project Professional (Current Employee) –  USAAugust 28, 2016
I had a great time working at Kleinfelder for several years, great colleagues, challenging work, plenty of billable hours. That finally changed as work began to dry up and then the CEO "retired". Things quickly snapped back from a whole company culture to an office focused obsession with the bottom line by management. The best and brightest have been streaming out the doors while those whose job it is to win work and "manage" have steadily fallen into the good old boy ways that have always been present, but again dominate the day to day workings of the company. If you have passion and vision, but lack authority, it is best to shut up and toe the line however displeasing it seems, or you will find yourself on the wrong side of someone who falls more in the category of a boss than a leader. The day to day stress of trying to remain invisible to those we are supposed to respect as our leaders is palpable in the office. Yet this behavior from leadership is not only tolerated, it is rewarded. I only hope the new CEO can turn it around before it's too late. It has been sad to witness this quick decline first hand.
Pros
Challenging work is available, peer level colleagues are generally great to work with
Cons
Leadership has lost touch with those doing the work, current "austerity measures" are killing morale, promotions are very hard to get even when clearly earned, raises are nonexistent, work is drying up

Top heavy corporate entity with ever-changing company identity.
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCAugust 14, 2016
A firm that wants to be one of the big A&E firms but lacks the leadership and expertise to deliver on promise. False identity is a big issue when selling services and capabilities.
Pros
Nice compensation and benefits.

CQAM / Construction Inspector III (Current Employee) –  Golden, COApril 23, 2016
Kleinfelder is a good company. Unfortunately there are some bad managers working for the company. The main manager in my department has successfully driven off half of our staff with his personality and poor management habits.
Pros
Great people to work with! Good supporting management team.
Cons
Bad main manager in my department
