    I have been working at Kennametal

    Pros

    The people, whether recently hired or "lifers," are generally excellent to work with. I have enjoyed most of the new relationships I have built. The pay is not out of line for similar jobs. The bathrooms and break room are kept in spectacular condition.

    Cons

    There is zero career advancement opportunity. Kennametal is very good at "dangling the carrot" to keep people around but the only advancement opportunities are from within the customer service field. Forward, progressive thinking is frowned upon. Overachieving and excellent need not apply here. Mediocrity is celebrated. Some (not ALL) of management can be very close minded and condescending. The general feel of the office is that employees are treated like children (i.e. assigned seating, assigned lunch breaks, STRICT attendance policy, socializing is discouraged).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open-minded to the ever changing work-place. This is not the 1980's or even the 90's anymore. You don't foster a thriving workplace by stifling creativity, talking down to your employees and, for all intents and purposes, discouraging any kind of employee socialization.
