    Pros

    Great company culture that fosters honesty, integrity, flexibility, teamwork, autonomy, open communication, family environment, work life balance and continious improvement mentality

    Cons

    The corporate headquaters is located in small town and there is not as much to do for entertainment. Accordingly, HQ lacks age diversity (average employee age is in early 40's).

    Advice to Management

    Kimball needs to improve its recruiting efforts to a more age and ethnicly diverse workforce and do a little bragging as far as PR initiatives go because they are a wonderful company but not too many people know it

    Kimball struggles to keep pace with competition.

    Pros

    Kimball does offer flexibility to get time off for family. Kimball has a yearly Christmas party and Christmas gifts for kids.

    Cons

    Kimball's executive management is very conservative and delivers consistent poor results. Kimball continues to go through lay-offs (both furniture and electronics) and just announced an across-the-board pay cut for all employees. Employees can expect little to no job performance feedback and if you are waiting for a raise, you may be waiting indefinitely. Kimball does not reward execptional performance, nor does the company recruit top talent. Many positions are filled with people who do not have a college education.

    Advice to Management

    Kimball can certainly use a refresh in terms of executive management. Jim needs to retire and then someone outside of the Thyen/Habig faimly needs to try and get the company back on track. Dan Miller has certainly lasted longer than anyone thought, so a change would certainly help there too.
