    Pros

    the product and services provided are second to none. You feel good about how you are helping others

    Cons

    leadership doesn't always lead, oftentimes dictates even on to the local level. felt micro-managed.

    Advice to Management

    Provide adequate guidance, but, let people do their jobs. Too many top leaders are down deep in the weeds of daily operations

    Pros

    The department that I was employed under was an excellent department, and have excellent managers.

    Cons

    They moved around 55 jobs to a shared service center in Budapest, and many of us lost our positions.

    Advice to Management

    I hope that all of the departments will share the same strong ethics that my managers have and had, and will remain open minded to hiring individuals with prior KCI experience.

    Pros

    Cons

    Unprofessional hostile work place in Advantage Center
    Lack of Team Work among all depts and Corp Ofc
    Favortism only way promoted
    Undesirable salaries for experienced

    Advice to Management

    Need to look long and hard at the Advantage Centers Mgmt indiscretions and unprofessional business practices with employees that clearly sabotage the company as a whole. Your Mgmt promotes and fires based solely on favortism and creates a hostile work place They are far from team players and theirs a constant "Civil War" between recert and ship pending thats a major cause of lost revenue and business to KCI and the field reps. NEW Blood is needed throughout depts and age along with the favortism plays a major factor in the unprofessionalism and lack of good work ethics amongst mgmt. The once loyal moral business practice of promoting within is being abused by your current mgmt who is using favortism NOT experience or exemplary work ethic as basis. Key is the fact that they are young, immature professional wanta be's with no other career experience or ideals other than what Has been passed down at KCI because they hv never had another job since highschool. Hope this enlightens you to a serious problem and factor in causing KCI to be an undesirable work place and downward slope of growth and revenue. Also re ck the salaries offered for experienced professionals and possibly more would seek employment with your Co and turn things around.
