I worked at Kema full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Virtually, all my colleagues were very supportive. Great sense of camaraderie when I was working there. I felt that management proactively tries to help you improve yourself through workshops, conferences, and various learning groups. The culture encourages personal growth probably because the company needs more knowledgeable peop.e The atmosphere is quite laid back. There are a lot of chances to be "experts" in various areas of the industry if you so choose, or just be great at a few.

Cons

Once you are proficient in an area or two of what the company needs you for, it's easy to get pigeonholed into that area, largely due to the high volume of work. Work can be somewhat repetitive. Some clients are difficult to work with although most are fine. There is a lot of initiative one has to take to succeed in this company. Due to the size, it's easy to get lost and feel helpless, especially if you don't ask for more directions. Often, given many tasks with few directions but expected to find the answers (but it may just be the nature of the industry). I hated all the technical writing involved towards the end of my career there. Despite all this, I have very little negativity towards this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Can't say much here. I actually enjoyed working with 99% of the managers there.

    Pros

    Only Pro would be they do offer a good wage. And a weight loss incentive

    Cons

    Kemna's is only looking out for how you can make them more money. They don't give a crap about their employees. If you aren't a salesperson or in accounting & you have no work to do you don't get paid. If they have some shop work to do they only pay you 80% of your days work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real its your employees who make your business run without them you would have to work.
