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

    Pros

    Great benefits, very health and wellness conscious atmosphere

    Cons

    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.

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

    Pros

    They are very employee based. They do something monthly to show employee appreciation. Lots of overtime

    Cons

    They pay isn't worth the amount of work that is required. I have to work 50 hours + to get a decent pay check.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen to their employees more. When people consistently complain about the same exact things, something should probably be done about it.

    Pros

    Loved the product and had great clients

    Cons

    My manager at the time operated from a place of fear instead of being positive. She no longer works there but she created a hostile work environment.

    Pros

    Great product line and is always innovating.

    Cons

    Any work that needs to be performed by the home office in Green Bay will take a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Home office needs new blood and people in leadership roles with new perspectives.

    I worked at KI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was good and got as many hours as I wanted. I learned a lot about work ethic. It's a great summer job for college students looking to make some money.

    Cons

    Was just a summer position but that's what I was looking for at the time. It's really hot in the mill in the summer but again, it's good for building your work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice, I think they do a great job dealing with college students and the other full-time employees and are good with their communicating goals.
