Covering their Assets

Can't Say (Current Employee)
Jasper, IN

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

ProsNot to much possitive to say about the company. They really seem more about the inside group then about the company or the people.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
