    Pros

    Benefits are competitive with top companies.

    Pros

    - #1 is the people. Although so much talent has left KC, there are still some wonderful people left.
    - Parking is good

    Cons

    - Senior mgmt is completely out of touch, yet they try so hard to make you believe they care. Pathetic.
    - Lower level managers try to please their bosses to be the next "pet".
    - SO much talent has left this company it is truly sad. Experience is not valued.
    - Company has been on a 8 year cost savings journey that now has come to "Burn the Furniture".
    - The next step to save money is to implement new pay standards to become "competitive". This is easily seen as cutting salaries and benefits.
    - Performance Management system that continues to kill morale while wasting tons of time.
    - Senior leadership views employees as a number, a headcount, and not a person. You can be replaced and you may be soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't give any true advice to our the leadership at KC since they continue down the same path even after being told by many people, myself included, about how employees feel about Performance Manager, salary modifications, downsizing, etc. I finally decided leaving was the only intelligent option and my best way to communicate my disapproval to management. For all my friends left at KC - I hope things change soon - best wishes.
