I have been working at Kennametal

Pros

You get to travel to several different companies, understand their best practices. Very wide range of products. Interaction with teams from around the world on a weekly basis

Cons

Long work hours, possibly on weekends too when travelling. The market is often price driven, rather than being quality driven.

    I have been working at Kennametal

    Pros

    I have a job to pay the bills

    Cons

    treated unfair on a daily basis, their is no such thing as senority, they try to get things done by threats unfair acts, God only now how they come up with how they chose the recently selected "groupy leaders" thats just a few

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the entire leadman, so called supervisors, and group leaders to old hands who have the experience and people skills and actually care about people and product quality. This place is going down very fast, if the job market where better you would lose over 50% of employes overnight.
    Wake up you people

    I worked at Kennametal

    Pros

    Kennametal had good benefits. Decent pay, and was an interesting place to work (depending on the division you are in).

    Cons

    Parent company was constantly changing management of the different divisions, crappy raises, and I had a terrible manager. No communication until after things are already decided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people at the bottom. Do things to show them that you actually care about what is going on. The people make the company.
