    I have been working at Key Safety Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere/environment: Co-workers are solid and always giving a concerted effort and really make the whole thing work.

    Cons

    Infrastructure/Technology: There needs to be improvements in the communication and systems side, especially considering this is a global company.
    Healthcare: Let's just say it needs improvement.
    Personnel: To match the growth, it would be nice to see some additional support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Profit sharing would be a nice gesture to the people that are supporting the growth of the company.

    I have been working at Key Safety Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Been here for a month and coming from an OEM , work-life balance seem to be much much better. fairly good salary and good benefits. one of the few Supplier who offer matching 401K... meaning the organization is doing really good. Absolutely no hierarchy issue, everyone is very approachable… our boss prefers to sit with us rather than his nice office so that he is more engaged in helping us. Everyone from floor shop to management is very helpful. Less enabling and more team work environment. HR has done a great job on my paperwork.

    Cons

    It’s too early to make any judgment on the short coming off KSS. But from the my years of experience I don’t see any major issue working here for long. Any way I will continue with a optimistic attitude.

    I have been working at Key Safety Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I have just started here but what I have seen so far is: Better salary with better benefits along with profesional environment and lots of positive energy. HR has done a great job in my onboarding.

    Cons

    Obviously my short time here does not qualify me to make judgements here, but honestly I have experienced no legitament cons here. I usualy go into new situations with a cautiously optomistic attitude. There is nothing here to raise my caution flags.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it the same. It seems that the values and processes that I have been exposed to so far are forward thinking and have been thouroghly thought out.

  9. Great welcome to the Company

    I have been working at Key Safety Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm a new employee, so I can't yet fully judge the company. What I can say thus far, is that the onboarding experience is one of the best I've had. Organized & everyone is welcoming. My manager was prepared for my first day with handouts of expectations, training, tour, notes & tips.

    Cons

    I'm new and haven't experienced none thus far; except I may get lost in the builiding because of all the different access points & turns.

    Pros

    KSS does more events for employees than I have experienced at other places. Summer picnic, Tiger's game, Christmas party etc. This events helped coworkers socialize and it helped to improve cross functional teams.

    Cons

    Company does not learn from it's mistakes. KSS lets its people continue to make the same mistakes program after program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your knowledge with your employees!
