    I have been working at Kenseal Construction Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Kenseal's history of continuous improvement, coupled with an outgoing staff of driven, innovative, and fun co-workers, has made my 24 years here challenging and enjoyable. We work hard, but we have fun doing it.
    Kenseal's work environment supports new ideas and creativity, from all employees. When you are able to see the positive results of the work that's been done, and how that benefits the organization as well as yourself, there's pride of ownership in a job well done. Most importantly, that effort is recognized and valued by the Kenseal organization. Kenseal does not hesitate to celebrate it's people and their accomplishments.

    Pros

    None! do not waste your time, you will be an outsider in this nepotistic environment.

    Cons

    The biggest con is that you most likely lost an opportunity to work for another company and now you are regretting your decision to work here. UN-attainable quotas, no structure or policy guidelines. Manager's manage from their desk.

    Advice to Management

    Harris, you have a lot of work to do with Kenseal. You are losing all your people, Change the current managers in NYC before its too late. You need to burn the name Kenseal, replace it with Harris Division 7. (Ken)seal is killing your business.

    I have been working at Kenseal Construction Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome staff and higher ups
    Great benefits
    You only work Monday through Friday
    Overtime is offered as well
    Hour break

    Cons

    Customers sometimes expect too much of you when those things aren't in your job description. Small staff of co workers so sometimes you may be overwhelmed but it's still manageable

    Advice to Management

    Relate to staff a little better.

    I have been working at Kenseal Construction Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have the freedom to make my own decisions about how I run my team and do my job provided that those decisions are in line with company goals and I am prepared to stand by them. I've had a long and varied career prior to joining Kenseal and I can honestly say that I've never felt more empowered. It's what I enjoy best about working here.

    Throughout my short tenure at Kenseal I've been given several opportunities to work with other departments on far reaching, high level projects that have not only helped make Kenseal a better company but also helped me to grow professionally. I feel that my work is appreciated and my efforts have been rewarded.

    If you have confidence in yourself and your abilities, are willing to be accountable for your actions, and desire to be part of a team that will help you grow, then I urge you to apply for a job here.

    Cons

    The company continues to go through significant changes. New processes and responsibilities are introduced often and sometimes there is no clear indication as to who to contact with questions or determine the "who is in charge of what" aspect of things.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to spread the values of empowerment, teamwork, accountability and camaraderie. Do not lose the culture that you have all worked long and hard to create.
