    Pros

    Cafeteria food decient. Employees not valued or recoginized for all their hard work. Those that are recognized are known for their politics.

    Cons

    Management very unprofessional to their employees. I see employees on the team overly worked working overtime to accomplish the addtional tasks that mgm't gives them, only to have management humiliate these employees infront of others. Also hear managers bad mouthing their employees behind their backs. Even after employees are no longer with the company I hear managers bad mouthing those employees. Totally unprofessional and they have no justification in doing this. Also find them condescending to their employees on their teams. Again I see employees working efficiently, and hard taking on the additional responsibilties, working over time and managers refusing to pay this over time. I see employees and management fearful of losing their jobs. Managers saying anything to protect themselves. Employees looking over their shoulders afraid of being let go. Not a professional or a good working environment to be working in.

    Advice to Management

    Management and HR ignoring company wide problem.

    Pros

    Very kind, understanding and decent coworkers. Everyone is willing to work longer and harder just to help their fellow coworkers (everyone, that is, except some managers).

    Cons

    It all depends on your manager (and whether they like you) on whether your experience with KT will be good or bad. People can be managers without the skills to be a manager, so if you are stuck with one of these types of managers, then work could be constant battle. Many Managers lack transparency and say they are going do something and do something else instead.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees. Don't just act like you are listening. Say what you do and do what you say. Your employees are your greatest asset, so make sure that they know this with a little acknowledgement. Employees work better when they feel that they are a part of a team working towards a common goal, rather than one where each employee is set their own separate goals and cannot share these goals with the other team members. Back up your employees. Think of your team, not just your career advancement opportunities.
