What are perks and other benefits like at Knowledge Adventure?

Pros

Fully stocked kitchen, fun activities throughout the year. Fellow co workers are friendly and easy to get along with, a lot of talented and passionate people. The brands are all fun to work on. Benefits are great, fully covered medical, vision, and dental, 401k, etc.

Cons

Executives bite more than they can chew and are always making promises they can't keep and end up taking it out on their employees. Management has made their employees cry many times as they belittle them and use gaslighting techniques to manipulate them. Nepotism runs rampant, and you can see the clear preferential treatment for those related to the CEO. They hire and under pay interns and expect them to do work that would not be considered intern work anywhere else. Management embraces key words and run with them without having any knowledge of the field. They micro manage and do not trust their employers, it creates a toxic environment for everyone and the tension can be felt on a daily basis. Management talks bad about their employees to each other and try to cultivate a solitary environment so no one can discuss their experience with each other.

Advice to Management

Hire new management, that actually knows how the industry works. Trust your employees, and reward them for their hard work in ways that actually matter and not just with food and holiday parties.

How is management perceived at Knowledge Adventure?

Pros

Great Products, Friendly Staff, Good environment.

Cons

Few years ago, just after the joining company recovered from a huge financial disaster because of some smart & well experienced executives & managerial decisions from US. Some of great talent left because of that, but with no options remain, Indian management authorities given to some from unsuccessful producers to Immature Manager's(with no management background) who only care about themselves and their friends. As the saying goes, Good Employees don’t leave Companies, they leave Managers. A bad Manager can take a good staff and destroy it. I saw some of the great talent leaving and manager only cares and brag about market value. Lots of politics internally in the teams. Some Managers & Producers favors only their supporter's.

Advice to Management

Hire some talented & Experienced Manager's to avoid Monopoly in the hierarchy for the long run.

Get some real industry vets and let them make changes they see need to be made. Cut Most of the exec team. They seem to never take any of the fall for all the damage they cause.
