I worked at Kennametal full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

401 K, Vacation, Climate controlled,good pay,medical,dental.
Safety oriented. Excellent Lean manufacturing program.

Cons

Unfair in promotions of female employees. Promoted male employee with less qualifications and less senority because he was sports oriented, which appealed to plant manager at the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't set in your office. Get out on the floor and see what people do.

    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.
