I have been working at Kerkering Barberio & Co

Pros

Perfect location, crappy building but thankful I have a job. Love my coworkers.

Cons

It just a job not a career. Poor management of employees. As previous posts indicate, favoritism is quite noticeable. You must have some type of relationship with your shareholder to get a promotion here. Some shareholders are treated like dirt and that is quite noticeable too. Very sad as we have some very talented female shareholders here. There is one shareholder that seems to have too much testosterone. He should be voted out or demoted like he did to another shareholder.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Is it really management's fault that they can not control a senior shareholder? Management is in all reality the messenger. Give them a break. We can only pray that he leaves on his own and takes his people. How peaceful KB would be. It can not get any worse unless they make him managing shareholder. It is not always greener on the other side.

    Pros

    Name, location, reputation (you think) and coworkers.
    Free CE
    You can get your education here paid, get experience and then leave.

    Cons

    Not appreciated as to what you bring to the table. You have no voice in this company. If you upset certain people, you get let go. The break room is monitored. If you take a break, you are stared at when certain people enter the room. Only certain people are allowed to have fun at this company.

    Shareholders are in business for themselves. They operate as they are in business alone not has a whole. They all just operate under the KB name. They each have their own practice. It is just not seen as such on the outside. This is a very broken company when you get inside. Eight years and there has been change but not for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management keep up the good work. It is a tough market to be searching for a job.
    Leadership is great when you have full power.

    Pros

    Name recognition.
    Name recognition.
    Name recognition.

    Cons

    If you aren't friends with your shareholder, you are basically on the outs to begin with.
    Lots of favoritism.
    Certain employees are allowed to act as bosses (and not even in management positions).
    Other shareholders turn a blind eye to the chaos of their department and just care about billing clients and getting their pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shakedown of shareholders/managers/supervisors in order. There are good employees who want to do their jobs but it is tainted by the lack of respect provided in most departments and too many henchmen who are just out to cut heads. Not a comfortable work environment, no open door policy. And to be more realistic about the hours that they want employees to work.
