Great entry-level position with programs and training in place to quickly learn the foundation of Financial Analysis.

Financial Analyst I/Financial Analyst II (Former Employee)
Roswell, GA

Pros-Well-respected company that's been around for a long time
-Manufacturing cost/financial analysis skills developed applicable to positions with other companies
-You get to decide how much direct day to day supervision is required
-Working as part of a team allowed us to leverage each other's skills to maximize training sessions that were held regularly
-Management doesn't act like a tiny mistake is the end of the world
-Positive reinforcement when you're doing a good job
-Solid data systems/technology

Cons-Large organizational structure with many levels of management makes defining correct customer difficult at times
-Team environment made it harder at times to be recognized individually while less productive employees could skate by under the radar
-Little too much focus on the office politics/relationships as opposed to the quality of work in certain situations
-Economic downturn resulted in elimination of 50% of the promotions everyone on my team was working towards

Advice to Senior ManagementSolid organizational/management structure in place already. As an established manufacturing company, I felt management was a bit too risk adverse at times for fear of decisions having unintended consequences. I think management should take a few more innovative/creative risks to drive future performance instead of resting on KC's strong brand image and economies of scale. It felt like the company was managed very well overall, but managers were trying to maintain the status quo as opposed to improving the company for the future.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
