    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, management helpful and involved. They are invested in their employees.

    Cons

    No longer in Houston, office closed back in 2008. Is now in Superior, CO. We were given an opportunity to relocate, but CO is too cold for me.

    Pros

    Managers are invested in every individual's success
    Good work-life balance
    Good benefits
    Senior executives are willing to spend time with those on the front lines

    Cons

    The company tends to get in it's own way. Too much focus on back office efficiency and six sigma projects, not enough empowerment of the sales force

    Advice to Management

    Less focus on back office projects more focus on empowering the sales staff

    Pros

    the customers, coworkers. It started off a great place to work, but then management changed and with that came the descent of employee morale

    Cons

    micromanagement, constant nitpicking and lot of favoritism

    Advice to Management

    need less estrogen on power trips

    I have been working at Key Equipment Finance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of good people are employed here. Employees do try and make a positive and fun company culture. I think some of the VPs and upper management are very good at what they do.

    Cons

    Most departments are very dissatisfied with their managers or management team. Obviously this really kills team moral. Managers of different departments are very "clickish" when they get together and instead of feeling like your manager is YOUR team leader, you feel like you are working against them. Managers are very skilled at pawning off their projects and work to you so they can be absent during the day or be in "meetings" all day.

    Advice to Management

    Be more mature and professional in the work environment (seriously, it's embarrassing and uncomfortable that managers talk and act like 7th graders). LISTEN to your employees. I've seen a lot of great ideas get swept under the rug by managers. Don't be offended when people don't agree with you. Act like a true manager, someone who leads their team to success, not a dictator where you drag everyone behind you.

    I worked at Key Equipment Finance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is great to work for. Vacation and benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Promotions are who know, not what you know. Sneaky low budget managers.

    Advice to Management

    Many managers have no idea of what or who they're managing. Promotions given by popularity.

    Pros

    Understanding leadership

    Difficult to think of anything worth changing - great place to work

    I worked at Key Equipment Finance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees including senior level executives where very approachable. The company spends a lot of time creating initiatives for employees to get involved. The facility I worked in was nice with a great view. Often employees would ride their bikes to work or work out during lunch. There is a park across the way where employees can walk/jog as well as walking trails. The facility has a full service locker room.

    Cons

    Management was not well trained or coached foIr effective leadership. Employees stay with the company for quite some time and it appears the organization is affraid to fire employees although layoffs during my time at the company was frequent (four in the three years I worked for the company). Instead of terminating ineffective managers, the organization would often move managers to another department.

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Compensation was decent. Work/Life balance wasn't overly difficult to achieve. Most of the people were cool. Management did seem to make honest efforts overall to listen to employees and help them achieve what they wanted.

    Cons

    The company was struggling from an IT perspective. The workforce was in constant flux and the workloads weren't managed all that well. The industry was also rough which made the work environment a little unpredictable and probably contributed to some of that.
