    Current Employee - Can't Say in Jasper, IN

    I have been working at Kimball International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Not to much possitive to say about the company. They really seem more about the inside group then about the company or the people.

    Cons

    Young people with little experience are often hired over people of real experience. It creates an atmosphere where incompetent management can gain suporters. Young inexperienced people tend to go along with the program and are moldable. Experienced people won't put up with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the departments are hiring inexperienced people, it's a red flag. Consider the risk in these departments to be very high!

    Former Employee - Senior Manufacturing Engineer in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Kimball International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job is in Florida which has no State income taxes. That does not come close to compensating for low salaries at this company

    Cons

    Very weak salaries and benefits package. Promise of bonuses do not come true due to cost structure caused when Kimball purchased Reptron. Long hours required of salaried staff. Equipment is old and outdated and provides difficulty when trying to meet quality requirements of the customer. This company wants to compete with the big boys (e.g. Flex, celestica, plexus, jabil, foxconn), but they never will. They can't provide the service level of the larger EMS providers so they have to work their employees like dogs to meet a lower price level. Customer base is the scraps the big players in the industry do not want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell out to larger company
