    Pros

    Able to work as many hours you want .but there is realy no pro they work you to death!

    Cons

    High price benefit,company want does not want to spend money to fix the equipment. But they complain why it not working ? H.r is strictly for the company if you need any thing to do with benefit you have to go on line and do it your self.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage people and time better ! Treat people with respect .and then you will start to get moral up!

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. My manager wanted to make sure that I get to see all facets of the company - engineering, purchasing, management level. I really enjoyed being there.

    Cons

    For entry level, there is no specific training sequence for new hires, or rotational programs. Basically, you need to put out initiative to learn things and ask questions; otherwise, you won't be fed with the basic training. Also, I did not feel challenged enough. However, it seems like KSS is trying to add the fun stuff in engineering by adding active safety division. I look forward to the change.

    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 Management

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

    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.
