    I worked at Knife River (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Sales management from other offices spent a great deal of time assisting to build sales.

    Cons

    Not always upfront with employees. Was told late in my employment that our division would be sold off and that current office employees would have the opportunity to transfer within or offered a position with the new buyer. Unfortunately, this did not happen in all cases.

    Advice to Management

    Show integrity and ethics. My employment ended due to a corporate buyout of my division. Previous to area being sold out, all employees were told that we would either be retained and transferred or given a position with the new employer. Unfortunately, this did not happen in all cases.

    I worked at Knife River full-time

    Pros

    Always looking for people to work for them

    Cons

    Did not allow for proper learning time of a new position

    Advice to Management

    I liked most of the people I worked with they always said good morning but in the end I didn't get what I needed and that was support

    I worked at Knife River full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    MDU resources (parent of Knife River) did infuse considerable capital into the financial mix

    Cons

    It was a great company when it was privately owned. MDU resources/knife river came in and turned from a great company to work for to a lousy company to work for. Thier initial position was that they would let original company run on it's own and 'just send them the money'. After a while they decided they weren't getting enough money and started to micro-manage the company. I won't say that it is now a great company to work for but it is certainly great not to be associated with Knife River/MDU resources.
