I have been working at Kimball International full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Kimball is very focused on acheiving its goals, while not forgeting its people.

Cons

Kimball is a mid-size company with a very flat organizational structure and low turnover, which make advancement opportunities slower to come.

    Pros

    The corporate culture is that of low rules enabling flexibility to meet customer needs and employee needs. The work is demanding, yet the company cares about its people. Employees can map out their own career path including support to move between functional areas and business units.

    Cons

    For those who want structure and defined career paths, the corporate culture may be challenging.

    "Kimball Office used to be a big family with nuturing qualities - it is no longer like that unfortunately."

    Pros

    In field sales position, there is flexibility and the ability to be your own boss for the most part. Many different responsibilities so every day is different. The Kimball Office product offering is good and the company always puts the customer first.

    Cons

    New sales management is from another industry and has replaced over 40% of the sales staff (which they are proud of). People that were with the company for many years were let go without notice nor fair severance packages. While the customer is always put first, employees no longer are. It may be different at the corporate office in Jasper Indiana, but the company is no longer a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you have quality people who know more about the furniture industry than you do. Treat your employees well and it will be returned to you ten fold.
