Pros

Kaiser is very well-positioned in their space, and has an excellent reputation in the industry. Folks are generally pretty nice, and management does a fairly good job of allowing employees to balance work and life.

Cons

The management team, while loaded with several top notch individuals, also has some dead wood that needs to be cleaned out. One could infer that the company does not want to rock the boat, and that the board is clearly okay with that strategy.

Advice to Management

Carefully evaluate the people that are at a mid-level manager position and above, as there are some clear opportunities to upgrade talent without taking on any undue risk.

    Pros

    Challenging. great bonus program, good medical for salaried employees

    Cons

    management culture is lead by fear. Union culture is sabotage, insubordination, and anything they can do to slow down production to mess with the company

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead wood managers and the lead by fear culture
