    I have been working at Kayser-Roth Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Close to my home, Nice break room. Always busy which makes the day go by faster. Easy job.

    Cons

    Rating system. Parking lot in dire need of repair. Exercise after break. Other employees not that friendly. Management is even unfriendlier. Dead end job no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the rating system, If you have a good worker that shows up on time train them properly so that they can be a longtime employee. All train your employees to be friendly and management.

    •Try not to run the company through fear tactics

    "Not much employee appreciation"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    They offer the opportunity to work remotely depending on department. Decent vacation time offered. Good Director level employees working there.

    Cons

    Most Management has been there 15+ years so not much room for growth. They need to update systems. They do not listen to employees and feel that the way it's always been done is right even though business doesn't grow. No work/life balance. Be open in meetings but do not speak.

    Advice to Management

    Use younger employees for feedback to avoid being redundant. Work with managers so they know how to respect their team members.
