    Pros

    Great team environment. Family oriented. Love the management team, they listen, they may not always agree, but they encourage you to challenge them.

    Cons

    The salary could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Look for new technology. We seem to "wait and see" then jump into new markets that our competitors have long since been established in.

    I have been working at KGP full-time

    Pros

    Some flexibility with schedule. Decent vacation but only if grandfathered in.

    Cons

    minimal to no raises and promises of yearly bonus incentives but absolutely no communication about status once fiscal is completed.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more communication to employees. It's always a big focus to "take care of existing business" but they don't appreciate their employees.

    I worked at KGP full-time

    Pros

    Dependent on your department, you have some flexibility with your time in the office. Working from home is not an issue. Inside sales has great training.

    Cons

    The culture is really demoralizing. It's a management vs. the employees atmosphere on a day-to-day basis and I think the lack of respect and feeling valued has taken a toll on many of the employees, especially those who were here prior to the original KGP-acquisition. Employees don't feel valued and that is shown almost daily through the atrocious benefits, salaries, leadership communication (or lack-of), and overall company morale.

    Pros

    Co - workers are the best. The actual work itself is great. Fast - paced environment where there is always something to do.

    Cons

    No room for growth. No incentives. As far as the pay, you will be lucky to get a raise that surmounts to a pack of gum at 1985 prices. I agree with one reviewer, "they want Miami Heat players at developmental league pay".

    Advice to Management

    Give decent hourly wages and incentives. I guarantee you would get quality personnel with low turnover.

    Pros

    Great team work & opportunities for growth

    Can be a bit us vs. them mentality, but no more so than a lot of larger companies.

    Survey workers for job satisfaction

    Pros

    Good people - - ability to make your own decisions.

    Cons

    Miami Heat talent expected for Developmental League pay.

    Develop a ladder pay raise structure immediately. Give employees something to look forward to.

    I worked at KGP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was in management during a period of expansion, and I was given a great deal of authority and latitude to accomplish what I needed to, and always felt like I was in the catbird seat. If you were in management, this is a fantastic company to work for. If you know what you're worth and demand what you're worth, the pay and benefits, along with flex scheduling and telecommuting options were just fine, if not high for the area.

    Cons

    The culture of politics, BS and backstabbing that came along with the acquisition of other businesses was a lot to tolerate. I saw many good people who had been there a very long time essentially forced out of their jobs by a campaign of secret meetings, gossip and general chicanery.

    Advice to Management

    It's been 4 years since my era there, and I would hope that they've fixed the culture problem that they had. If not, I would submit that this is the most demoralizing thing about the place.
