I have been working at Kennametal

Pros

Getting a pay check every 2 weeks, good health insurance, thanks to our union,good benefits, thanks to our union

Cons

Very little communication from Latrobe to us, poor communication from the plant manager - does not want to settle grievances, so everything is going to arbitration.2 years ago you enjoyed working there,now it's just the opposite. The plant manager is very controlling and it's either his way or the highway. He signed a contract with the union and does not honor it. He instituted Lean, which is not working the way it's supposed to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start getting involved with the people and find out how it's really being run, and not just a flyby, really get involved with everyone

    I worked at Kennametal full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    * good place to learn things.

    Cons

    * many people in manufacturing act as if the plant is their dads ( highly arrogant )
    * negative people who are half knowledgeable dominate positive people by bullying and gossiping ILL about colleagues. this is happening in plants and RDE.
    * people brainwashing boss and grabbing opportunities to an extent which demotivated hard working people. Such weeds should be thrown out.. Well they will grow here :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if the same attitude continues bangalore plant is going to shut down.
