    Pros

    There is a wide variety of experience that one could obtain by working at Koch

    Cons

    I think there is far too much management and not enough trust in their employees. Advancement is not so easy.

    Allow your workers to do their jobs and have more faith that they are capable of doing what they are hired to do.
