Great values, PBM strategy, competitive rates, work life balance and growth opportunities!
At the time there wasn't work from home but they have fixed this!

Private company, stable, lots of technology resources (yet management doesn’t make strategic decisions on what should be implemented to actually HELP the recruiters), big name to recruit for.
The leveraged capability doesn’t work. The people they have in place at the senior management level on this team don’t embody Koch’s Principled Based Management philosophy. The leadership has been a struggle since September 2021 (take a look at the older reviews on here that mention Talent Solutions…) and Koch Recruiting has been pushing out top talent ever since (unless you sit in Wichita, of course). Any one who has more experience, or is a more strategic recruiter/leader is pushed out so incompetent white women in Wichita can lead the charge. Everything on paper about Koch is great—but Koch Recruiting isn’t aligned to these values. There’s a lack of diversity on this team, and pay close attention to the lack of information Koch shares about valuing diversity/inclusion. Also, take a look at who’s leading this team—most of them haven’t recruited a day in their lives. How can recruiters be set up for success if those who are steering the ship have no idea what recruiters need to do their job successfully? There was a large layoff Spring 2023 and leadership referred to it as “creative destruction” and talked endlessly how “excited” they were for these changes. Heartless.6Koch Industries Response2mo
