Pros

Great co-workers. You can be proud of their products.

Cons

It's not what you know, it's who you know. There are definitely "select" people that get the training, promotions, money and who's opinion is valued. Upper management does not listen to or care about employees. They say they do but when it comes down to it you're a number. Lots of training for good processes that you never use in "real life".

Advice to Management

My advice wouldn't matter.

    I have been working at Kohler (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid company with great products, so you can believe in what you're selling. Privately owned so long-term strategies are executable without worry of shareholder's being upset.

    Cons

    Hard to advance in the company as upper management is limited. Pay is below average to average. Location of the headquarters, which is where one must reside to advance in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees more and eliminate all of the layers.

    Pros

    interdepartmental work, the people you work with are great to be around and work with, free golf for employees of the golf courses and discounted rates for non course employees.

    Good summer opportunity for those in school or looking for seasonal employment with no desire to advance.

    Cons

    Management, Management, Management!!!!!! All upper management and even some lower level management is only there for themselves. They may lead you on and say that you are a valued employee but any chance they get they will tare you down. Management will take all credit for positive events and make excuses and dish out all the negatives. In my case, and for many others, I was more educated and qualified for management positions and that is why they will cut you down every chance they get.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't listen if I would want to give it to them.
