    Pros

    I enjoyed working here. There are a lot of good people, knowledgeable, great infrastructure. They know how to work together to create new processes and have a great IT team.

    Cons

    Communication on changes can be improved. The lack of communication causes a lot of job insecurity.

    Pros

    The company has a demonstrated record of operational excellence within a friendly and cooperative environment. The culture provides a great work-life balance, and includes company-provided activities (lunches, holiday parties, special events) that foster camaraderie. Their comp and benefits - including holidays and vacation policy is good.

    Cons

    The organization has three main geographies, which prohibits regular, in-person collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should continue company-wide communication, and encouraging innovation.

    Kellwood has a very advanced cutting edge approach to developing technology. IT employees are exposed to numerous new technologies and their support.

    Cons

    Kellwood is still working to establish sound financial footing to move forward with growth. The jobs at Kellwood have been unstable over the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    There is a human cost to staff reductions. Don't place the burden of poor management decisions on the workers that were not a part of the decisions.
