    I worked at KI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exercise friendly, stable. Flexible with scheduling for the most part. Very good tuition reimbursement. Nice exercise facility on premises with adequate shower and locker room area with sauna.

    Cons

    Maybe it was where I ended up, but despite great reviews and feedback for years I was not able to progress. Did not have a very supportive leadership of my goals, though I helped create value and was extremely customer focused.

    Advice to Management

    The middle management should help interested employees who want to stay find appropriate roles, not 'give' them jobs, but steer them towards fulfillment. Be aware of how the VP level and below are managing.

    I have been working at KI part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great environment to work in with co worker

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen and your supervisor treats people disrespectful. The supervisor I had based evaluations on his leads capabilities if you can't work as fast as him then you are no good. The supervisor discriminated against me because of my weight and treated me badly. Evaluations were based on my weight and not on my job performance. Was fired because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the workers who is making you and the company money with respect or you won't have no one. Also just because someone is over weight doesn't mean they can't work fast or do their job. Need new people in management because the ones you have SUCK.

    everything you do, every move you make is measured.

    Advice to Management

    You have really great people that have been in inside sales for years but you don't value them like you should. The Managers are more worried about numbers than they are about helping their people achieve them.
