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

Pros

Salary on time, upraise and appreciation in time
Atleast for the first 2 years !!

Cons

- Bad work environment
- Too much work due to miss-management
- Less involvement of top management and Top management does not give authority of making decisions
- Managers trying to be local boss in each department.
- No upgrade in post unless u put resign.
- Cannot bypass just above boss and inform his seniors that my boss is doing some stupidity !!

Advice to Management

Solve all the Cons I know its not easy but let it start
STOP THROWING PRESSURE ON LOWER LEVEL WORKING PEOPLE

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Great opportunity to learn
    -Great co-workers
    -Challenges
    -Brand

    Cons

    -Little respect shown to employees (seems hollow when they try)
    -High stress levels; very demanding
    -Clear career development plans not communicated
    -No trust in employees or their ideas. It goes beyond healthy skepticism to basically accusing employees of being incompetent unless proven otherwise

    Advice to Management

    Quit talking about employees being "accountable" and start walking the talk from the top. Empower associates to perform at a high level by providing positive coaching and development and adequate resources to get the job done.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Extensive list of employees who have been with the company over 20 years - great knowledge sharing
    Certain senior managers are very approachable like a small, family-run business
    Long term view of businesses and strategies - not looking to make a quick buck

    Cons

    Slow approval process for hiring, capital purchases, process improvement
    VERY detail oriented - meetings can get bogged down on the smallest things
    Global company, but many in upper management have never lived outside of Wisconsin - tough to relate to employees around the world

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the big picture and the key opportunities to achieve goals (small details make little difference - don't waste your or others' time)
    Improve upon global diversity - it's great that the company is growing overseas, but management needs to keep up
    Be more open to what entry-level managers and their direct reports are telling you - they're in the trenches and know what's really going on.
