    Pros

    Interaction with Engineers and all Employees is an open book. The Company truely respects all ideas and offers feedback regularly. Someone qualified will help and guide you through any project at any level at any time.

    Cons

    shift work, older site, needs more updating, the Company is fully aware

    Advice to Management

    Make it foremost that all management dealing with hourly let hourly know how important and vital to the success of the Company. Move the engineers out of their offices and on the shop floor at least 75% of the time. They need to be on those machines and not their computers much, much more often. Trouble shooting paper machines does not usually happen from a computer. The paper machines are all needed now machines. Follow up reports are important, but are always after the fact.

    Pros

    Great compensation package and benefits with a great work environment. Very friendly management and relaxed atmosphere. The opportunities for advancement are plentiful and the compensation, to a larger extent than other places, is merit based. Your goals and assignments are very clearly delineated and management expectations are usually very clear and achievable with hard work.

    Cons

    A lot of relocation if you want to move up in the company. some of the mill locations are in the middle of nowhere and are not very desirable. The company doesn't bring in a lot of outsiders so there is not as much innovation as there could be and new ideas are hard to get out there.

    Advice to Management

    Fresh ideas and new ways of thinking would really help KC get going again and gain ground on P&G
