    An excellent experience tucked away in a small town

    I worked at Kohler as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked as a co-op for 7 months, gaining invaluable experience in product development.
    - excellent, passionate co-workers
    - strong team environment
    - superb company golf discounts

    Cons

    - being family owned, projects are typically forward thinking and therefore slow-paced
    - business sets over-ambitious goals for sales, therefore significant improvement is still marred
    - stuck in the not-so-bustling metropolis of Sheboygan, WI

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Express more interest in hearing from project teams, not just their project leads, or leaders of project leads.

    I worked at Kohler full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good associates, beautiful facilities, best intentions. Great public / customer rapport. Nicely located and lots of golf and beaches near there.

    Cons

    Less than ideal development process, don't always achieve the best end result. Really have an excellent impression until you start to peel the onion. I've seen more nervous wrecks in this place than anywhere I've worked. Very high turn over of the good ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and rehire the good ones, lol.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Disapproves of CEO
