Current Employee - Office Employee in Englewood, CO

I have been working at Kärcher full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The people are great and there is a type of a family feel at the company. Most employees have pride in the company and the products we produce. Benefits are also very good and company promotes a healthy lifestyle.

Cons

Pay is marginal and some managers micro manage, but definitely more pros than cons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication between departments would help. It's not horrible now, but could use improvement.

    Current Employee - A Title I Wont Have As Soon As I Find Another Job in Englewood, CO

    I have been working at Kärcher full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Decent pay(but for a price, see below)
    If you're in management your set for life in your role
    The un-organization and the problems dept head have with each other makes for a comical environment at times

    Cons

    Lack of Leadership
    Lack of advancement unless you big time brown nose
    Definitely management plays favorites
    Lack of communication between depts, therefore there's 10 different way to do something, and everyone's way is "right"
    Lots of turnover
    Management is clueless what is going on in their depts and probably even their job since they havent done anything since I've been there
    Management have a monopoly on their positions, they do absolutely nothing but blame their subordinates for things that they screwed up on and were on their plate.
    Threats in front other employees that certain employee's are "expendable
    Top level management bc they're on contract from Germany put band-aids on things or turn the other cheek until their contract is up and get their big bonuses and then it is seen what a mess that added up after the fact
    HR dept ignores complants and does not want to hear it....until things blow up then claim they never got any complaint
    Training is substandard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your subordinates a chance, but be so cocky and thinking you own the place when CEO/CFO arent around and dont skip out 3 hrs early when the CEO/CFO arent there that day. A little respect would be appreciated

    I have been working at Kärcher full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Karcher North America provides a great work environment. The overall culture is very friendly and open. It is a solid team environment.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack opportunities for upward mobility. Often told superiors are very happy with the results of my work, but fail to see it grow into new opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest to management to let employee know what their vision for the career path of an employee looks like. Work together to be on the same page.
