    I worked at Kaz as a contractor

    Pros

    Aside from the call center and customer service department, the company itself is descent.

    Cons

    Discrimination should not be tolerated at this company
    Underpaid
    Unprofessional
    Treat new employees horrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the managers on the call center. Discrimination should not be tolerated at this company. Favoritism is unfair as well since they should treat all their employees equal.

    I worked at Kaz as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The coworkers at Kaz are very nice and friendly to each other. They are willing to help each other solve complicated problems. I got really good experience of how the product development cycle works from concept to production release. It's great to have an elevator with the three story building. Free coffee and discounted snacks.

    Cons

    There were times when the negativity and worry from certain individuals was overblown. Management can to a better job of keeping quality employees. The overseas phone calls to Asia at nights. The carpeting needs to be updated. The lab space was small for the amount of products to be tested.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a positive environment to foster creativity and a learning organization.

    The building needs updating badly. Used to have all hands Town Meetings but haven't seen those in a while. Depending on your job you might have China conf calls at night.

    I worked at Kaz

    Pros

    Great people in a team-oriented environment. I learned invaluable skills and was very happy with the managers I worked for, and the culture was people-friendly, fast-paced, and fun.

    From a work standpoint, there were always interesting, challenging projects that kept me interested and engaged. My boss gave me a lot of opportunity to cooperate with different department and to do the important projects.

    Cons

    Sometimes, it wasted extra time to work with the outsourcing companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enhance Customer Relations and improve the products' quality.
