    I worked at Kimball Electronics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the employees are nice to work with and perform their job well. Many employees have been there a long time so they have seen it all.

    Cons

    Schedule is not very flexible, you start to feel like a robot after a while. Other then that it is not so bad if you don't mind a very repetitive schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust culture of engineering to attract more talent. Hard to get changes implemented because everyone likes to keep doing things the same way.

    I have been working at Kimball Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Continually improving in every area you can think of
    Management's way of treating everyone with respect, all situations are considered and different options are provided to help employees in any way they can

    Cons

    Some employees just don't care - management has done a good job of removing most of these people but there are a few left that think the place owes them something
    For a couple of years the bonys plan didn't pay well - finally the plan is paying high percentages and headquarters is committed to making sure bonuses stay high

    Advice to Management

    Continue to remove those people that are negative cancer grows fast. People should be thankful to have a job

    Pros

    It is never a dull day. For those that want more than just punching a time clock and putting in your time, this is the place to be. Good growth strategy. Everyone is friendly and seems to want to achieve the goals set. Turnover is very low.

    Cons

    Benefits are average. Some individuals could be better qualified for their positions. Jasper is not the most welcoming to newcomers. This isn't necessarily something Kimball can fix, but it does factor into your decision to re-locate here.

    Advice to Management

    Find the right talent for key positions and don't settle. Look at the current bonus program and re-scale it to better reward those plants that are performing.

    Pros

    I worked as a production worker out of the Jasper plant. Great people to work with and a great environment to work in. Very clean and comfortable. All the jobs are easy to pick up no matter what department you work in. Everyone is very friendly and open. I felt like I could talk to anyone there if I had a problem, from my supervisor all the way up to the president of the company. Great guy by the way. Good benefits package as well.

    Cons

    I never worked as a production worker before but it's terrible what you get paid as a production worker. Some of the workers who have been there 10, 15, 20 years is making the same as someone who's been there for six months. Sure anyone, and I mean anyone can do these jobs but it would be nice if there was more room for pay advancement.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring within, don't make "talking in front of large crowd's" a requirement. How often is that required anyway? I see the same speakers speak at each and every meeting.
