Working at KCI
Employee ownership defines KCI’s corporate culture. It fosters an entrepreneurial spirit, encourages technical expertise, and shapes our strategic planning and organization. As owners, KCI employees and managers share responsibility for growing the company by providing quality, innovative services to clients. Our people are self-starters, who enjoy mastering new technologies and solving project challenges. The company, meanwhile, nurtures an open and challenging environment, where everyone can make a difference, be rewarded for their efforts, and enjoy coming to work in the morning.
A Great Place to Work
CE News magazine has recognized KCI as one of the “Best Civil Engineering Firms to Work For” in the country. The atmosphere is open and relaxed, yet challenging and professional. Our employee-owners understand they have a vested interest in the decisions that shape the company’s strategic and business plans, financial system, retirement plans, benefit packages, training opportunities, stock valuations, and the distribution of wealth and profits. The company shares financial, operational and strategic information with employees through monthly town meetings and a corporate intranet, building trust and cooperation throughout the organization.
Being a part of a great company enables KCI employees to work on award-winning, high-visibility projects, making us a firm of choice for engineers, planners, scientists, construction managers, and administrative professionals. The company’s strong work ethic has enhanced our bottom line and, in turn, the value of employee stock. Since becoming employee-owned in 1988, our stock has grown more than 1,130%.
KCI sponsors formal mentoring and technical, managerial and safety training programs. Employees benefit from a competitive salary and bonus compensation program and are encouraged to pursue advanced degrees through a tuition reimbursement plan. We recognize talent and promote from within the organization, providing increasing levels of responsibility and opportunities for advancement and promotion. During our Annual Awards Luncheon, the company recognizes employees’ promotions and educational and service milestones as well as the superior performance of project teams.
