    Pros

    great benefits, the esop was great, loved the people I worked with

    Cons

    watched it become too much of a large business. everything you think when a company goes from medium sized to large in a short time frame wasn't for me.

    Advice to Management

    not every business decision can fit in a spreadsheet.

    Pros

    They hire the smartest people they can get, and make a lot of strategic moves to benefit the company (even if sometimes they cost an arm and a leg and limit other initiatives.)

    Cons

    KCI is so top heavy with management, and they all but forgot to promote anyone to take over for the senior leadership, who are all aging out of the company. Department-wise, they are truly uninterested in career advancement for non-engineers. If you aren't billing to clients, you are not a concern. There is a flat structure with no opportunity for advancement in any support group. Additionally, a lot of the older/more experienced project managers show little respect for the time of the team that supports them, expecting miracles overnight and ignoring deadlines almost entirely. It's a hard environment as there is no expectation of reciprocated respect from senior staff.

    Advice to Management

    You see the same complaints over and over-- take action to solve them. Complacent older employees are still coachable.

    I worked at KCI Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back culture. No micromanagement.

    Cons

    Employee turnover is high across the board. Administrative people are not very well respected in the company. If you work in Accounting, marketing , etc. this probably isn't a good place for you unless you are just looking to coast through and not looking for any career advancement potential. This is not a place for an ambitious person that isn't an engineer. Expect to stay in the same position forever. They will lead you to believe there is opportunity, but there is not. It is a job to nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    A little investment in your admin staff will go a long ways in employee retention and satisfaction.
