    Pros

    Great working level people and would be better if the complete Executive team would all leave/get fired because they are completely Incompetent!

    Cons

    They are worse then Takata... and I can not image in anyone’s right mind that the OEM’s would allow this transaction. Jason Lou left the company because he destroyed it along with the rest of the moron executive team but they are too stupid to bail!

    Advice to Management

    Quit... extremely incompetent

    Decent pay

    Hands on work

    Internet isn't locked beyond usabilty

    Cons

    Key is the cheapest of the airbag manufacturers for a reason. They don't pay for training or up to date equipment.

    Document everything. Management only cares enough to avoid legal liabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training

    Invest a little into prototyping equipment so production equipment doesn't require constant and costly updates.

    Unworthy people given bigger opportunities based not based on experience
    Have to jump through hoops to make the quota because the machines are slow and fault all the time.

    Pros

    There are multiple different fields that you can learn at KSS, from management to technician work. Responsibilities get pushed to employees more than other companies I have worked for so they really test your potential.

    Cons

    Communication between departments could be better.

    Pros

    It was close to home. Local area is decent for places to eat.

    Cons

    Management is a joke, most of them have just been there so long that they failed upwards. High turnover from all departments. Loves to higher is Visa employees so they can hold that leverage over them. Everything is panic driven because most of the management have no understanding. CEO hires his friends into high paying positions, but when they are asked to work they threaten to quit and he gives them raises and removes tasks from them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that will take accountability and make changes. Trim the fat from the company, There are more executive and director level managers than middle managers.
