    Clueless leadership

    Pros

    At plant level good because of the relationships built with employees.

    Cons

    Terrible to much dog and pony shows when upper management come in and only do a snap shot observation. They send BUM in to tour your operation with really no knowledge of what is manufactured. They advance people with no degree and poor work ethic. Only qualification is brown nosing.

    Pros

    Kennametal has everything you think to ask for from an employer. Friendly co-workers, excellent benefits, clean environment, woody scenery, and walking path. I loved the dress code.

    Cons

    Upper management tends to think of themselves as better than others. Not enough advancement opportunity. Hours need to be more negotiable.
