    Constant State of "What's Next?" with a Hint of "Are We Out of the Woods Yet?"

    I have been working at Kaman Music full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Team players in every department, smart and forward thinking individuals who strive for excellence.

    Cons

    Finance people trying to run a business that consists of "selling horse hair and vacuum tubes out of a catalog".
    Since I've been here KMC Music (formerly known as Kaman Music) has been in a constant state of flux since being purchased by Fender (FMIC). Larry Thomas drove out all of the good management at Kaman, brought in GC cronies, and lowered morale in unprecedented speed. Since Mark Terry has come on board and KMC is being sold things seem to be going in the right direct, but nobody knows what that direction really is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the selling of KMC quick and painless - let us keep our jobs.

    I worked at Kaman Music full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was great for my first 10 years, but has gone down the tubes since it was sold to Fender.

    Cons

    Nothing good going on here now, all the old management has been let go. They just closed Ovation Guitars, and sold Guild to the son of the former CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell KMC to someone who cares about the company, get it out of Fenders hair!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
