Kleinfelder's leadership has built an environment to support and motivate our employee-owners and serve our long-term client relationships.
“Within Kleinfelder, we are rich in employee talent and passion. Combined with our corporate culture of excellence, this makes Kleinfelder a dynamic, growing, legacy company that continues to thrive in the most challenging economic conditions.”
"Every day at Kleinfelder, I find opportunities to challenge myself and push for excellence. I love the fact that I can directly contribute to our client success and company value. And perhaps even greater, I am surrounded by people who feel the same way."
“I have been surprised to find a genuine interest in risk management, while working at Kleinfelder. Employee ownership certainly contributes to an understanding that the company must carefully manage its risks for Kleinfelder to enhance project success.”
"One aspect of working at Kleinfelder, that has been particularly rewarding, is the opportunity to help shape our culture to ensure we empower our teams with innovative tools and systems to deliver the right solutions for our clients. It’s not just about innovation, or client service, or being in the right place—it’s all of those things—together with the best people, empowered to do the right thing, every time."
“The culture of the company matches me well, with an open, honest approach to building a stable business and a sincere effort to improve and provide a long-term enjoyable 'home' for everyone who works here.”
"In my role at Kleinfelder I have the opportunity to meet and work with employees at all levels and in all jobs. I can tell you from those interactions, our employees enjoy the people they work with and the variety of projects they work on. Kleinfelder is a place where employees have opportunities to work in different fields, learn new skills, go to new locations and expand or even change careers. Engineers have moved into marketing or communications roles and administrative assistants have been able to move into project management or regional manager roles. Kleinfelder truly is a company that offers our employees many options for career growth."
“The world is a challenging place where the logistical, social and political complexities have daily impacts on the 6 billion inhabitants. Critical factors are the challenges we face to have the right infrastructure for the future and how we can effectively maintain that infrastructure. At Kleinfelder we are structured to succeed in solving those critical infrastructure challenges by aligning talented people with the complex demands and goals that impact our clients.”

Our relentless focus on solving our client’s needs and problems, combined with Kleinfelder’s flexibility and agility, is bringing new opportunities to our employees and company. The deliberate decisions we are making, mobilizing our best talent on select client opportunities and challenges, is benefiting our clients and accelerating our competitive advantage. This is a very exciting time to be part of Kleinfelder Canada, with lots of opportunity for those who want to be part of building our future."
"There is a world of challenge and opportunity at Kleinfelder. We are a dynamic, fast-moving organization that provides great opportunities for career growth at every layer of the organization. As we acquire new companies, improve performance of existing businesses, or streamline existing processes, we are challenged to provide high-quality support services in both the U.S. and the global sphere. We have enhanced our financial reporting, improved financial forecasting, and streamlined cash management--and we are continually striving to improve everything we do. We have a passion for excellence, and strive to be industry leaders in all finance and accounting practice areas. We believe in aligning strategy, structure, and key metrics to drive superior long-term performance. Out in front is a great place to be!"
