I have been working at Kingston Technology full-time

Pros

The company gives you lots of opportunity to grow and learn. Roles and responsibilities can shift quite frequently which gives plenty of opportunity to take on new responsibility. Benefits are a huge plus at Kingston, they're not the best but they're pretty good and relatively cheap.

Cons

From an industry perspective the pay is low all around. They try to compensate for it with profit sharing on top of a low base salary. But unfortunately the base salary doesn't really go up much even with new responsibility.

    Pros

    David and John are a good team. David is a no-nonsense team leader that has good intuition when it comes to business decisions, and John is eloquent and fun loving. Together they help keep Kingston heading in the right direction and enjoyable to work at.

    Cons

    Exceptional achievements and personal sacrifices for the company are sometimes seen as the status quo for some employees. This has a serious effect on company morale.

    Advice to Management

    It would help morale to recognize excellent employees.
