    I worked at KMC Controls full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great to work with, they will help you how ever they can, plus the work itself it very challenging bust also very fun too. The relax/free time you get when not too busy!

    Cons

    Upper management was a disaster, just recently taking over for a CEO who left, the company was I feel not in great shape once the new management too over. The CEO was not a people person and lacked in the communication department. I felt the people that were in control didn't quite understand what it took to be in Validation or Testers and what all steps we needed to do to get final results. They were always in a hurry and to me that's not good business!

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees, treat them with respect, and not be on them so much, act is if your care about them! Show a little patience's and you might be amaze on what type of employees you have!

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

    Pros

    Salary was competitive. Appeared to be a great career opportunity.

    Cons

    Too much downtime. Communication was poor. Was there for less than a year as a perm employee, I never felt like I was part of the company, but as a contractor. Nothing substantial really ever came my way while being there. In the end, it was a bad career move, since it added no value to my job history.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front with people regarding roles that are part of a new venture, which includes knowing about possible layoff(s) if things don't go your way with it.

    Pros

    Not too fast-paced. Good starting job. It's a good place to begin your career. The engineering ability of some on the team is pretty solid. Most of the employees are good workers and very kind people.

    Cons

    KMC has low compensation relative to other places in the industry, the career growth potential is sub-average. Most managers tend to promote sparsely, and acts of initiative are not always rewarded as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees' needs, especially those of the technical employees.
