    Key has done nothing for my career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCoworkers are nice and friendly. Scheduling is flexible.

    ConsManagement expects the workers to do their jobs for them. There is no regular pay raise schedule. There is no advancement schedule. Additional responsibilities are added without providing training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat employees like just another resource. Stop expecting employees to give without giving something back.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Can work on really interesting things, but company has no vision

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-Gives you a paycheck and sometimes a bonus.
    -Can work with some interesting technology
    -Management does provide some schedule flexibility and time off for family emergencies

    Cons-If there is a vision, management has never articulated it
    -Will not pay for equipment replacement, even if broken
    -People always seem to be the first cut unlike unnecessary expenses such as management's travel
    -Company's bureaucracy makes the Federal government look efficient
    -Company will lie about insurance and leave the employee hanging
    -No advancement unless you are in management's graces
    -No performance reviews
    -Employees tend to have anger issues. Will yell at other employees over minor events
    -Senior management treated significantly different than regular employees
    -Morale is overall low, and management will not address it
    -Practically no job security
    -Very little training
    -Managers do not discuss career plans with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementArticulate some sort of vision. The company is basically floundering, and senior management will not address it. Don't let rumors float around. They have sapped a significant amount of morale. Be honest and direct with employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It's a high speed wobble.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe good side of working here is the safety program that they have in place. It is one of the best.

    ConsBad communication from upper management all the way down to the lowest man on the list. To many loud mouth know it all new workers that only have 1 to 2 months experience in the position they are in. Very bad lack of leadership, especially in the rental equipment shop. Management states " no job is worth putting yourself at risk" and say not to rush or speed, but yet we have dispatch and several supervisors rushing up at every turn like NASCAR drivers. To many boss's are buddy, buddy with lower level employees which lands new hires in open positions instead of senior employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow employees more respect. Show employees who do a good job that they have been noticed and are appreciated. Communication needs to be improved greatly. Look into experience level before promoting to new positions. Stop the buddy factor from boss to employee and keep it professional. Look into higher pay for shop hands. Main reason alot are quitting is due to lack of pay and bad moral level stemming from management down.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
