    Pros

    the people were nice and easy to get alone with. The personnel were very understanding when i lost my grandmother. they gave me bereavement time to get her funeral together.

    Cons

    the fiberglass was very itchy and uncomfortable. contractors were not allowed safety locks. the contractors worked odd shifts unlike the regular workers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff the way you would want to be treated. you will get more out of your people if you treat them fair

    Pros

    World class manufacturer, family owned company with committed principles who are willing to invest.

    Cons

    Customers are not as important in the culture as they should be. Company values machines and operational elements above all.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see as much emphasis and investment on the customer-facing side of the business as there has been on the manufacturing side.

    Pros

    Knauf offers its employees great benefits, on and off site. We have the Knauf Kafe, an on site health and wellness clinic, not to mention the wonderful health benefits and 401K. People have been in the same position for many years as a result of enjoying their job. I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of this team!

    Cons

    Getting people to accept that change can be a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communication open.
