    Pros

    challenging work; exposure to management; endless opportunities across Koch companies; global presence, multiple industries; company reinvests 90% of earnings; privately held which results in longer term decision making; compensation structure is performance based

    Cons

    work/life balance can be a challenge; no matter how much time you put in, it feels like it is never enough, which can be taxing after a while; company operates very lean

    Advice to Management

    hire more people when necessary, as there is plenty of work to go around; when people are as overwhelmed as they are, work quality and job satisfaction suffers, not to mention work groups are in a bind if someone leaves; end up digging a grave that is nearly impossible to get out of/ahead
