    Pros

    None. Wichita has a nice downtown. If you actually value teamwork and a discussion of ideas, this is not the place for you.

    Cons

    The company supposedly follows MBM principles, but they are not applicable to senior and upper level management. Everyone is overly critical, constantly looking for flaws in fellow employees. If you do not act like everyone else, they look to weed you out and you will become a subject of managment discussions for separation. Senior management will yell and say anything to lower level employees, but you can not do the same. Everyone is walking around like they are in the George Orwell book, "1984". There is no such thing as enterprenuerialship there because everyone is afraid of losing thier jobs. The Kochs run the business for what it is, the only major employer in the area and they use it to control the employees and their movement within the other Koch entities.

    Their poor reputation is well deserved.

    Pros

    Competent people to work with. Interesting, technical work. I learned a lot working here. Not much else positive whatsoever.

    Cons

    Several of the people I met here were hyper-conservative, racist, and homophobic. Their public relations department is nothing more than a propaganda machine. They try to brain wash all their employees to share the exact same political, social, and economic views as the company. The company pretends to be ethical but will abandon their "principles" any time a profit is to be made.
