I worked at Kennametal full-time

Pros

Freedom to make decisions, career growth, benefit package

Cons

ISCL VP's and Director's lack leadership skills, company runs most plants pennies and belittles plant management for less than desirable results, very micro managing, less than competitive compensation at management levels.

Advice to Management

ISCL VP's and Director's need to be taught how to manage and grow their direct reports, not bully, belittle, and single out as a response to lower than expected results. KMT also needs to invest in their plants, expecting results from years and years of neglect of the equipment and facilities has made an extremely difficult situation even more impossible.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A performance driven company, pays on part with industry standard, ethical- driven from top management, high regards to safety.

    Cons

    Technologically saturated, limited challenges. Multiple hierarchy, less emphasis on new process developments and improvements. (filled with old heads and 'not my job' type)

    Advice to Management

    Choose your mangers wisely. Good managers are not the one who talk well or make good ppt's. They shoyl be the one who motivate their team to achieve companies goals. Though numbers are the targets set by top management, an efficient conversion of numbers to technical targets at lower level necessary, like quality, process improvement & development, technology development etc. Coz at that level they don't give a dam about it. ACE stage is good as a process, but lacks motivational drivers.
