    I worked at Knight Piesold

    Pros

    Pay is better than average--unfortunately this is an extrinsic motivator--and will not keep employees satisfied forever.

    Cons

    Management lacks knowledge of organizational behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time focusing on organizational behavior--address intrinsic motivators, attitudes, behaviors, and perceptions. Encourage management to develop leadership skills, not just technical skills. Foster an environment of employee empowerment and job satisfaction.

    Pros

    Company believes in a "culture of discipline", where individuals are encourage to strive for heir personal; best.

    Cons

    The downside of "culture of discipline" is no one is actively looking over your shoulders, so if you don't feel comfortable with asking questions you won't like it here.
