Pros

Kimball International is a financially stable company that is now focused in their established business segments. There are many great employees that make it a better place to work.

Cons

The company is not a dominate player in any of its segments which makes it a struggle to compete. Frequently changing priorities disengage employees and erodes productivity. They talk about developing employees, but there is little effort to fulfill that. Processes are very cumbersome and not customer-friendly which makes Kimball difficult to do business with. Creativity and innovation are discouraged as a result of corporate structure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a cultue of encouragement and trust with your employees, but with accountability at all levels - beginning with senior management. There are a lot of good people who could do a much better job if they were not discouraged by leadership.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
