Current Employee - Won't Disclose
Current Employee - Won't Disclose
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Most people here are in manufacturing jobs so they are easy to communicate with, helpful and respectful of the company, its brand values and heritage.
However many of the Kohler brand associates here think they are bigger than the company
they reside and work at - Mira showers

Cons

Limited car parking causes big problems
Completely hidden salary /compensation scale structure causes resentment
between different job roles. Staff engineering roles are generally poorly paid.
Strong and consistent effort does not equal financial reward here.

Advice to Management

Carry out a poll to seek out those in the company that truly do believe in the product, those that will go to the end of the earth to uphold brand values. The true workaholics within KM.
Give a payrise/merit increase or whatever is required to retain these valuable people before they
feel they need to jump ship to the competition..

    I have been working at Kohler Mira full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's too soon to know if Mira's grandiose claims of being staff-focused etc. are genuine or just the usual HR hot air. Apart from parking, facilities are pretty good; some of the buildings are old and tired, however management are starting to refurbish them. Also the the canteen is very good.

    Cons

    The site is very cramped, and employees who are not important/senior enough to be gifted a car pass have to park off-site a few hundred yards away.

    Also Kohler is a very pretentious company, e.g. all staff/employees are called "associates" (why?) and there is a touching over-reliance on glossy/motivational posters, staff roadshows, awards ceremonies, and other superficial stuff that is an irritating reminder that unseen HR/admin people are frittering away money on trivia. Meanwhile some of us are trying to get real work done and OUR resources are being squeezed...

    Advice to Management

    Senior management are invisible. Come down off your nice ivory tower occasionally; it's not rocket science, just walk around and chat to people rather than indulging in fancy roadshows and such events.
