I worked at Kennametal

Pros

It's a very innovative company. It prides itself on hiring the best employees within their fields. I strives to be the best in its industry. Good people to work with, who always try to help in any way. They were also very personable.

Cons

The company is a little old school with their hierarchy structure. A lot of their processes in various departments are slow and bureaucratic. The location is also not too great if you want to be in a metropolitan area. The hiring process was a debacle. It was a bad first impression of how they conduct business. I also had very little direction. It didn't seem like my superiors thought about what to do with me before I got there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move things along quicker. Stop having lengthy, time-wasting meetings about every little thing.
