A great company to work for, particularly if you like diverse opportunities with the stability of a single company.

Manager (Current Employee) Pasadena, CA

ProsKP has a strong social mission which appealed to my previous experience in non-profits.
I've been able to wear multiple hats in multiple locations.
You can move as fast or as slow as you want in your career, there are always opportunities to move up.

ConsOften, the salary might not be comparable with the for profit world. There is a trade off between the stability of the job and the rich benefit package with the higher salary you might be able to command outside the organization.
The organization sometimes tolerates individual behavior that is not conducive to a high performing team.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the advice of the front line people, they understand the job.
Get rid of employees who don't have the appropriate people skills, regardless of whether they achieve results or not. It does more damage to the organization when you keep them. There are others out there in the job market that can achieve the same results and not leave a trail of devastation behind them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: There's a lot of people there who want to change and make things… Cons: Management plays favorites and promoting those who kiss up a lot. The company is very top heavy, so many managers who sometimes sit… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
