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.

    Former Employee - Analyst Intern  in  Kohler, WI

    I worked at Kohler

    Pros

    -Paid well to next to nothing, this was the common theme between the interns that summer, but if you don't complain about doing nothing you get an offer!!!!! The offer was $49,100.
    -$500 signing bonus
    -$100 a month to help with rent

    Cons

    -You don't do anything AT ALL, in a given week I did maybe 4 hours of actually work and then spent the rest of the time on line googling, waiting for some task to come up.
    -Since Kohler WI is all the size of a large university class it is extremely high school and success in the company really depends on who you know and how well your liked.
    -Also on that note, since it is so small everyone knows your business.
    -Living in "Shevegas", if you've been there you know what i'm talking about and if you haven't stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason why Kohler is bleeding money every year and why Herbie's net worth is dropping every year, there is too much dead weight around that company and they need to cut the fat.
