Good company for the most part. Location is poor if you are under the age of 30.

I have been working at Kohler full-time

Pros

Large multinational company with a good reputation. Good benefits: medical, dental, vision, 401k with match, pension. Privately held with over 80% of profit reinvested in the company.

Cons

Bad location: the Village of Kohler is only 2,000 people, Sheboygan is only 50,000. Bad location if you are young. If you are married with kids it is a pretty good place. Although the benefits are good, actual pay is below average in most positions.

    I worked at Kohler

    Pros

    Great co-workers. You can be proud of their products.

    Cons

    It's not what you know, it's who you know. There are definitely "select" people that get the training, promotions, money and who's opinion is valued. Upper management does not listen to or care about employees. They say they do but when it comes down to it you're a number. Lots of training for good processes that you never use in "real life".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice wouldn't matter.

    I have been working at Kohler (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid company with great products, so you can believe in what you're selling. Privately owned so long-term strategies are executable without worry of shareholder's being upset.

    Cons

    Hard to advance in the company as upper management is limited. Pay is below average to average. Location of the headquarters, which is where one must reside to advance in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees more and eliminate all of the layers.
