    Ehem. Mitarbeiter - Structural Design Engineer 

    Ich habe bei KPFF gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Good employee education, resources, benefits.

    Kontras

    Poor management feedback, review of performance.

    Rat an das Management

    Earlier, more frequent feedback would prevent an employee from having a false sense of security.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei KPFF (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    1. GREAT VARIETY AND VOLUME OF WORK. As a young engineer, it has been amazing to be at a company that has breadth and depth in various markets. This provides numerous opportunities to grow as an engineer and will pay dividends down the road. 2. GREAT PEOPLE AND CULTURE. KPFF puts a high value on relationships, at the very core of it's business model. This applies to client relationships, but also relationships among...

    Kontras

    KPFF seeks to provide an environment that is well-suited to self-directed career path. Sometimes this can make employees feel a little "lost," so to speak. Overall this strategy is a positive, and the leadership is committed to its employees' success, but it seems like the type of place where you won't go far unless you take the lead on your on career.

    Keine Meinung zum Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei KPFF gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    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...

    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...

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei KPFF gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Very smart co-workers. Really interesting projects.

    Kontras

    Work life balance is non-existent. I'm shocked that so many people listed this as a pro. The pay is low relative to the competition. The benefits are abysmal. Healthcare is entirely employee paid. No vision and dental (I'm not joking).

    Rat an das Management

    Get a dental plan. Treat your employees like people.

    Kontras

    -Principals are very busy so you must be a self starter and very organized.

    Befürwortet Geschäftsführer

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei KPFF (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Overtime is paid (by the hour), so you are compensated for working over 40 hours.The people treat each other like family, and when a deadline is met, everyone loves to celebrate. There are always social events, and plenty of sports to participate in (weekly). Management is always open for suggestions and wants to hear how people feel about decisions before they're made.

    Kontras

    No clear lines indicate where the start and end of one's responsibilities and roles are. A lot is left to a young engineer's discretion about when to make decisions and when to seek guidance (making it unclear when one is being too autonomous or too dependent). Compensation is about average, but the lack of 401(k) matching, and the small bonuses leave some to be desired. One can easily get stuck doing trivial, non-challenging,...

    Rat an das Management

    Provide more guidance to entry-level engineers. Improve the mentorship efforts. Train PMs to be more organized and clear in how work is delegated.
