Pros

Private company means not driven towards quarterly earnings. Company principles actually impact the way things are done. Lots of smart people and most that are trying to do the right thing.

Cons

More focus on value to company, minimal concern over employee job satisfaction and fulfillment. Small company-attitude yet supporting one of largest private companies in the US. A few leaders still in leadership roles that make you wonder why they are still there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the command and control mentality and delegate some decision rights.

    Pros

    The best thing about Koch Business Solutions is that you can use the company to get into another company at Koch Industries.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management preach the traditional MBM tactics and culture, but do not practice it themselves. There is no clear direction for employees. My political views are much the same as the Koch Brothers, but I do not feel my employer should force them on me. When you ask and encourage employees on ways to make the company better, utilize the ideas, and also reward the employee for the idea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach, find a clear vision for the future.

    Pros

    Big Company, opportunity for advancement is always available, a lot of networking capability

    Cons

    Extremely closed minded
    Management expects employees to live by the Guiding Principles (which by the way are nothing more than common sense) but management does not practice these NEARLY as much
    Favoritism is an EXTREMELY big issue here
    Micromanaged beyong any other employer out there.
    Political views are forced onto employees.
    Very Unethical
    Cult Like
    DO NOT GIVE ANY RAISES!! Their "philosophy" on compensation is very out of touch with the real world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being two-faced and stop micro-managing every aspect. Also, give your employees props instead of folding when senior management questions why you want to give them more money.
