    I have been working at Kimball Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Super friendly production crews. Climate controlled workfloor. Good entry level positions. Good entry level pay.

    Cons

    Leadership constantly shuffling leads to drastic philosophy shifts. Pay increases are not adequate nor fairly distributed. Expectations too high for some positions based on compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Better balance of expectation vs compensation. If someone is showing the desire to do more, give them the chance to succeed. Better inter departmental interaction.

    I worked at Kimball Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Clean and climate controlled atmosphere. Good wages.

    Cons

    Very high insurance deductibles. HR is very stiff and some times unreasonable when dealing with 0% tolerance policies. Everyone is human and everyone makes mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Remember those who have worked so hard for the company and the years they put in. Don't look down on them for making a mistake outside of the workplace. Understanding that they are only human and that people deserve second chances are part of running successful businesses.

    I have been working at Kimball Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hiring and on-boarding process left a positive impression on how they value their new employees. You are given freedom and autonomy to deal with problems. They say we have guidelines and not rules.

    Cons

    If you work in a remote (telecommuting position), you better expect to be the one calling everyone within the plants and to be the last to know about most everything.

    Advice to Management

    Work on productivity tools and non-manufacturing inefficiencies to get the biggest bang for the buck in the next few years.
