Additional Culture Details

KCL Engineering’s culture is built on flexible work arrangements, unlimited approved paid time off (PTO), incredible benefits, and an office environment that fosters fun and friendships. Neil Smeenk, the head of our Des Moines office, highlights, "There's a distinction between merely offering flexibility and actively embodying it. Our leaders take time during the week for family, personal pursuits, and kicking back at the office. We understand that the most meaningful way to support our employees is by exemplifying how flexibility plays a part in our day." This approach to work-life balance is just one of the many ways KCL Engineering stands out.

Another foundational element of our culture is giving back to the community. Employees place importance on actively engaging in company-organized volunteer opportunities, partnering with organizations like the American Heart Association of Iowa, Habitat for Humanity, Meals from the Heartland, and Hope for Justice.
