Consistently growing and profitable company, but CEO practically requires that you drink his Kool-Aid!

I worked at Koch Industries full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great environment, competitive and challenging in a good way, fair and competitive salaries

Cons

The CEO seeks to indoctrinate his employees and management in his set of conservative, market-centric ideals through required training sessions, classes and workshops. Your escalation into mid- to upper-level management will not come unless you prove that you believe in his ideals and business model. Also, BILLIONS of the income earned at Koch is funneled to Super PACs that support a very specific political agenda.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great company, but Mr. Koch should do more to distance himself and his political agenda from his company.

Positive Outlook

    Koch is generally a lean running group that at times requires sacrifices of time away from your family, friends and activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positive work environment and remember to make sure that your employees have not only a fulfilling life at work but at home as well.
