    Sad to see a legendary American company go from good to great to the gutter. All for dividends and PR.

    People are familiar with the brands. Learn how to manage large businesses with little to no money and constant budget cuts. Great experience on how to manage through a ton of Senior Leadership complexity and confusion. There are senior leaders in Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago.


    There are senior leaders in Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago. Many especially in Finance, HR and Global marketing are on the same page regarding business needs. It makes it extremely difficult at times. Finance is brutal. The company has been cutting marketing and product efficacy for 10+ years for the investment dividends. The trick is to go with the constant spin (digital transformation, etc) from above to motivate the teams. Hiring has been brutal given the DE&I quotas. It was hard to let good people go and break up families.

    Full relocation & Fair starting salary


    'Good Ole White Boy's Club'- they 'talk' diversity, but don't understand what diversity truly means. So, they don't 'walk' diversity. Rather than be advocates for both employee and management development, HR runs around with brooms cleaning up messes that individuals who are inept at management, make on a daily basis. Too many folks sitting in chairs of senior leadership that are not qualified to sit in those chairs.

    Great work environment. Opportunity to work from home with work/life balance. KC give you the opportunity to work both independently and in group settings. Leadership at KC is good as long as your willing to play the corporate game.


    Sales team could benefit from being able to make more decisions independent of corporate approvals.
