I have been working at Kohler

Pros

interdepartmental work, the people you work with are great to be around and work with, free golf for employees of the golf courses and discounted rates for non course employees.

Good summer opportunity for those in school or looking for seasonal employment with no desire to advance.

Cons

Management, Management, Management!!!!!! All upper management and even some lower level management is only there for themselves. They may lead you on and say that you are a valued employee but any chance they get they will tare you down. Management will take all credit for positive events and make excuses and dish out all the negatives. In my case, and for many others, I was more educated and qualified for management positions and that is why they will cut you down every chance they get.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They wouldn't listen if I would want to give it to them.

    I worked at Kohler full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good associates, beautiful facilities, best intentions. Great public / customer rapport. Nicely located and lots of golf and beaches near there.

    Cons

    Less than ideal development process, don't always achieve the best end result. Really have an excellent impression until you start to peel the onion. I've seen more nervous wrecks in this place than anywhere I've worked. Very high turn over of the good ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and rehire the good ones, lol.
