Kennametal - A Great Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Latrobe, PA

ProsGreat location(except for young, singles)! Global opportunities. Very fair pay and benefits. Management understanding of work/life balance. Great people to work with.

ConsLack of standard processes. Influence of IT on the operation of the business. Somewhat engineering led company at the expense of being customer oriented.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the focus on the customer and the company financials. Provide clearer vision of overall strategy and direction for the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
