I worked at Kennametal full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pays some of the bills.

Cons

Minimal pay increase once a year and that only covers the increase in insurance costs. Nothing extra for your pocket. NOT family friendly at all. You are just a seat filler to the company. Nothing more. They do not care about the individuals. Lower level mgmt is horrible. If you ever move you you have to check your conscience at the door. No room for compassion. There are better companies out there. This one better get with the times quickly. Must learn how to allow employees to balance work/family. Don't be sick either. No sick time and you get charged and "event" for missing work. Even with a doctor's note. Too many cons to name.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the "little" people. Reward those that work hard. Make family a priority. Pay better.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Kennametal is that all employees treat each other as a family members. They help you with anything and everything. Managers recognize the work you do and give you the reward for the great work. You learn really interesting stuff at Kennametal that you wouldn't learn from any college.

    Cons

    They don't give out relocation housing allowances for interns/ co-op.
