    Pros

    - Opportunities to take on lots of responsibility in a short amount of time. Great for building up skills quickly as a junior engineer. - Young office with amazing co-workers who are passionate and determined. Many people are more than willing to answer questions and work through problems together. Any positive outlook is due to the passion and drive of the younger staff and the managers who recognize that and are... able to say "no" to unreasonable clients. - Overtime compensation

    Kontras

    - Depending on your group, you can get stuck with certain projects. You must be vocal and adamant in order to not get pigeonholed into any design category. Needing to take initiative is one thing, but having to without much support is sadly more common. - Flat organization structure and ambiguous career trajectory make advancing in one's career very unclear and subject to favoritism.

    Rat an das Management

    - Younger staff need support not only with technical skills, but also (an even more importantly) with management and leadership skills. This is especially important when younger staff are so frequently given management roles on projects. - Add structure to reviews. Defining personal goals, discussing career trajectories, and setting performance metrics (and, of course, revisiting them) with each employee will... improve younger engineers' sense of ownership and clarity about how they can advance in their career. - Avoid working with clients who don't understand the value KPFF brings to projects and have a track record of frustrating or unsuccessful projects. Even if we get paid, this continued relationship takes a strain on engineers in the form of constant rework and long hours with no purpose.

    Pros

    Great workplace to gain a ton of exposure to unique engineering challenges. Every engineer there is highly skilled, so it's a great place to learn from your co-workers

    Kontras

    They are consultants, so at times, work load can be overwhelming, or conversely, too slow.
