    Current Employee - Senior Research Associate

    I have been working at Kemin Industries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Transparency
    Average to good fringe benefit package
    Lots of opportunity to learn and cross-train across functional areas (if you're self-motivated)
    Non-management employees as a whole are extremely talented hard-working folks
    High ambition growth directives
    Family-feel
    Does a lot of good in the community

    Cons

    Wages are below market
    Focus is on marketing/sales, and manufacturing; research and development is a tertiary underfunded function
    Conservative and slow to change for a family owned technology company
    High incidence of inexperienced, poorly trained, or otherwise inadequate management at both mid- and executive level
    Culture has shifted away from rewarding performance and experience without doctoral education
    Work-life balance is poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay reasonable market value for your talent and follow through with directives. Best laid plans and goals are irrelevant in the face of an inability to retain talent and repeated poor execution.
