I have been working at Koch Industries full-time (More than 5 years)
Treated as an individual, not just a number despite being 120,000+ employees. You know where you stand because you are constantly given feedback on what you are doing well and where you could be improving to do even better. We operate off of guidelines, not policies, wherever possible to allow for free thinking and focus on the most important items.
Not all areas of Koch are up-to-date with current demands/preferences of employees. For example: work from home, flextime, work attire, maternity/paternity leave etc. The ship is turning around though and I believe the company is starting to hone in on the important benefits, not just the trendy ones.
Advice to Management
Continue to invest in leadership that is passionate about people, this makes the biggest difference. Work on the speed of change, each situation will require a different pace, make sure to treat them appropriately.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Koch Industries.
Very relaxed. The just asked about yourself and what you are looking to gain in the role you are applying for. Not technical at all and very laid back.
