I have been working at Kwikset Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
1. many good people who can mentor you and learn from 2. great engineering product development team with innovative ideas and fun to work with 3. here at Kwikset you are in control of your own destiny, which means your career will take off as fast as how much energy, effort, and contribution you put in 4. competitive benefit package (PPO, 401k matching, free perks like concert tickets, merchandises etc)
you have to be patient in dealing with co-workers who are not up to the standard you're holding - many employees put in just enough to get by so the rest of us will have to work extra hard to carry their weight
