Pros

Koch allows a lot of personal freedom as to how you complete your work. They are the most safety concious company I have ever worked for. Their focus is on employee safety, sometimes to an extreme. They also allow some flexibility with your schedule.

Cons

No raises, no reviews. Some of the immediate floor level supervisors lack people skills, and a few don't speak english at a high enough level to be dealing with customers and vendors.

Advice to Management

You have some really good people and you need to recognize them. You also have some people who are in positions that they should not be. Really sit down and evaluate your managers and supervisors. Also remember as the cost of living goes up you should consider that when evaluating your employees.

    Pros

    I actually worked for Koch Quantitative Trading under the previous leadership team. The best reason to work there is the experience and exposure you get to various commodity and capital markets.

    Cons

    They treat you terribly and constantly turn people over. You are expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop turning people over so frequently. Treat people decently. Mistakes are expected and should be managed and controlled accordingly.

    Pros

    Not afraid to give responsibility, culture is fantastic, commitment to integrity and fairness. Economic thinking is top notch. Great people.

    Cons

    Good pay to get in but usually stalls at 4% once you are in the door. Promotions come with minimal to no wage increase.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure pay for performance, one of the five MBM dimensions, is applied the way you see it. In my case, and with others, it was applied subjectively and in small quantities at the year end bonus. Other company's do this better. Promote more from within.
