I have been working at Kohler as an intern for less than a year
Pros – -Opportunities to get involved in critical projects immediately
- Friendly and helpful co-workers
- Varied work day to day.
Cons – -Not enough work assigned at times, you have to find work for yourself to do or sit around bored.
-Lack of structure in co-op program, it ends up being what you make it.
Advice to Senior Management – -Continue to develop structure in co-op program
-Be sure that co-ops are given enough work to do.
-Equip co-ops with betters tools for the job (computers that can run 3D modeling programs, etc.)
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Kohler
Pros – The position allowed me to further my knowledge in the machining process. The fellow employees that I had interactions with were very friendly and put forth a good amount of effort in doing their best job.
Cons – Management at this facility in particular is completely incompetent. My experience has been that they play favorites and will have nothing to do with any ideas for process improvement. The managers will go to great lengths to show you (in front of others) why your idea has no merit, and that their idea is most feasible. One manager that was particularly prone to doing this didn't even have a degree in the field of those he was managing.
Advice to Senior Management – Please pay closer attention to the practices of mid-upper level management. The more ideas presented to address an issue, the more likely a company will be successful. Put managers in place who have extensive experience in the same field of those they manage.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Kohler
Pros – The medical insurance is probably the best you'll find in the area. It is a good place to start and gain experience.
Cons – Management is constantly changing. When you reach the top out pay there isn't much of an opportunity to advance. They lay employees with the least experience off during the summer months.
Advice to Senior Management – They need to improve on the way they treat their employees. Listen to their employees when ever they have something to say about the process.
