    Pros

    Great company to work for, great paid

    Cons

    If you work in a building other then JPK, you don't feel like an employee you feel disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employee that are in other company's buildings, by making them feel like they are part of the team and not like an outsider that you see maybe once a month.

    I worked at JP Kenny full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at JPKenny. The open and supportive attitude allowed me to learn quickly.

    Cons

    There is no room for advancement. Training was mostly useless as was the mentorship system in my case.

    Advice to Management

    The training system needs work. As it is most of the training involves showing up on your day off and listening to someone explain a program that you never get to use while giving you almost no hands on experience. For me the mentorship system did not work out at all. There needs to be more support for the mentors and the mentees especially for those working out of the office at other companies. If Wood Group Kenny is going to keep expanding the way that it has been then the company structure will need to change as well in order to allow for more possibilities for advancement.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at JP Kenny full-time

    Pros

    Small - medium size company that provides you with the ability to work independently, yet within a project team. No micro-management of performance; rather, the open door communication and encouragement by all managers and mentors.

    Cons

    Clients who do not provide accurate information or change it consistently; scope-creep syndrome. Sense of disconnect when placed in a client's office.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time walking about the office and personalizing your time. Attend team-building events and get to know people by site. Help define career growth for employees.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at JP Kenny as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was an intern at the time and I could clearly feel that the team members were very supportive. Each and everyone of them was very willing to help you.

    Cons

    When everyone is working on a project and as a new addition to the team, you may get less guidance at time but there are clearly some other materials to help you understand the whole subject better.

    Pros

    Good company for personal growth. Professional Development is encouraged. Various types of training available. Senior Management are very accessable and lead the company through careful expansion - not boom or bust.

    Cons

    Some people are in senior positions despite not being qualified but you find that at any company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with compensation levels as they rise within the industry

    Pros

    very good work/life balance, flexibilty with schedule benefits are ok

    Cons

    no room for advancement, little feedback from management, no desire to retain employees

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the recruiter and HR that feel retention is not an issue
