    Pros

    Kohler is a great place to work if your specialty is in art, hospitality, marketing/account management, or ceramic design and engineering. You will be given opportunities to go well above and beyond your current job role (but will not be compensated for it).

    Cons

    They target salaries at the median regardless of the position, but expect top-level performance and do not discourage using or pushing colleagues out of the way for personal gain. Management attitudes eventually cause employees to question themselves and their self-confidence, which makes leaving the company that much harder. The expectation is that employees will continue to grow skills and capability without a reward of additional compensation or benefits, and then those increased skills and capability become the expected normal.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you tolerate, and this company tolerates negative people and backstabbing. Set a higher standard that lives up to the "gracious living" espoused in your product marketing and encourage employees to support and encourage each other.


  6. It is a good start for the graduated students, and gives you more opportunities for learning and training.

    I worked at Kohler full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, decent bennies. A branch of Kohler Company that seems to be managed indepedently and goes by the name SAUK TECHNOLOGIES or SAUKTECH.

    Cons

    Unfriendly environment, finger pointing, management seems confused and has no concern for employees, little or no adherance to safety practices. Other employees will openly blame their mistakes on others if they think they can get away with it. An environment where the employees "just don't care". More concerned about speed and numbers than quality.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to become less confused and more aware of what if happening on the floor rather than just the numbers of product that can be produced. They have no "open door" policy for concerns and the only time a supervisor will speak to an employee is to ask why things aren't going faster or to fire him.
