    I worked at KCI Technologies as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay was average Little or no supervision. Good company vehicle with a provided gas and maintenace card. Work was what you made it.

    Cons

    Management seemed to be over worked and needed additional help to maintain essential items for personnel. Upper management seemed to not care at all about local management or its employees. No recognition given by senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more concern about employees and offer incentives to stay within the company. Doesn't seem to be a employee owned company but more of a "who are you" and "we don't care up here" type of company.

    I worked at KCI Technologies

    Pros

    None worth mentioning that I could see

    Cons

    If you like being lied to this is the place for you. The recruiters and managers are dishonest and have no qualms about lying to employees. The dishonesty appears to be systemic and supported by upper management.

    No apparent redeeming values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can't be honest with your own employees why should the clients expect anything better?

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at KCI Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, Employee stock ownership, close relationships with other employees working in your field or on your projects, small office feel.

    Cons

    No/limited opportunities for advancement, no interaction of staff within different practices or outside of local office. Does not promote training for lower level employees. Disgruntled older staff create negative energy in offices and for entry level/newer employees, sick time & vacation time bundled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for training. Help to build stronger office relationships in addition to client relationships.

    I have been working at KCI Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You will never out of work if you go out looking for one. The upper management supports anybody who wants to explore other type of works because they understand the evolution and diversity in the workplace. Anyone can become a project leader. KCI is ISO 9001:2008 Certified. Employee stocks are going up higher each year.

    Cons

    They don't use the traditional ranks or positions which is confusing to a beginner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us the good work. Give us the orders and we'll be delighted to do it for the company.

    I worked at KCI Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Professional, safety oriented company. Everyone takes their job seriously. But they are not uptight and stuffy. My manager always listened and took any issues seriously, and responded in a positive way.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better. Only 6 paid holidays. And at times, we would be forced to take paid time off to cover holidays where we were unable to work on job sites due to state restrictions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    6 paid holidays is not really enough. 10 is a more appropriate number of days.
