I worked at Kohler

Pros

Some very creative product lines.

Cons

Worst management I have ever seen. Company wide.
Managers have very large ego's that constantly need to be fed.
No respect for current employees. Outside opinions matter much more to management.
Benefits are a joke. Gracious living does not apply to employees.
Most people will lie to your face and have no problem with doing it.
Upper level managers have no respect for lower level managers.
You become just a number.
Most budgeting is done with funny money. There are no real checks and balances in a yearly budget.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need a major house cleaning with management at all levels.

    Pros

    If you are a recent college grad, Kohler will wine, dine, and welcome you in their finance area. For college grads, Kohler offers a variety and well rounded opportunity to experience all levels of accounting if you choose to ride their wave.

    Cons

    If you are not a recent college graduate, regardless of previous work experience and possibly based on the college you attended, you are not looked at as "moldable" and therefore several have experienced doors closing the moment they accepted the lower position - of course they didn't realize what was happening until after the fact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the old school traditions no longer help grow the employees. Take a step back, open your minds and realize that the strict adherence to the titles being used have created many limitations. Also realize that personal growth goes a long way for overall company longevity.

    Very poor communication of expectations except where production is concerned.

    Pros

    Good hourly group, very interested in trying to do a good job. But moral and the opinion of management is very low, especially toward the plant manager.

    Cons

    Lack of humanity in management matters, not a cohesive management group, everyone seems to feel threatened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to learn how to walk the walk, not just talk the talk. Management does not work as a team, improving communications and looking at the big picture, not just production would go a long way to improving moral.
