I have been working at Koch Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

All employees believe and are held to practicing the MBM guiding Principles. You are surrounded by individuals with similar work values. New ideas are encouraged and celebrated. You get real time feedback from peers/supervisors. Your compensation is based on the value you create for the company. I love that your hard work is recognized financially. You are not given the same salary as a sub-par performer. There are no egos. Leaders treat subordinates as their equal. There are no silos. departments communicate freely and help one other.

Cons

I really have not experienced any. Many reviews state that the work life balance is poor. I typically see most working 40-50 hours a week. We are adults. We work extra when we need to and leave on time when appropriate. When work life balance seems is off, I see them adding additional staff.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! I'm proud to work at Koch!

    I have been working at Koch Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Big Company, opportunity for advancement is always available, a lot of networking capability

    Cons

    Extremely closed minded
    Management expects employees to live by the Guiding Principles (which by the way are nothing more than common sense) but management does not practice these NEARLY as much
    Favoritism is an EXTREMELY big issue here
    Micromanaged beyong any other employer out there.
    Political views are forced onto employees.
    Very Unethical
    Cult Like
    DO NOT GIVE ANY RAISES!! Their "philosophy" on compensation is very out of touch with the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being two-faced and stop micro-managing every aspect. Also, give your employees props instead of folding when senior management questions why you want to give them more money.
