    I worked at Knoll full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working at Knoll. Their products are unparalleled and it doesn't hurt that you get an amazing discount on furniture for yourself. The people are wonderful to work with and there is a great company culture. Compensation is great and so are the benefits. The pros could go on forever, but I would say the greatest part of working at Knoll was the commitment to quality. In their people and in their...

    Cons

    This isn't even a con, but it's about the only negative I could come up with. Knoll is a manufacturing company, and with manufacturing there are sometimes mistakes, defects, issues or errors. It takes some patience to work through it but I don't think you will find that to be different at any of the other manufacturers. They don't have laminates that match their veneers or veneers that match their laminates.

    Advice to Management

    MAKE MATCHING LAMINATES AND VENEERS.

      I worked at Knoll full-time

      Pros

      Knoll has amazing benefits, high pay, tremendous flexibility, and they work hard to recognize the people who put in the effort. Overall, they treated me so well and I was proud to be part of the team.

      Cons

      Unfortunately, we were also hard to work with. Our dealers struggled to find answers from us and it was difficult to find that "one person" internally to help at times. Also, I didn't like how I was competing against my internal team in the region. Each Knoll division has its own goals and quotas and we were expected to work together but were sometimes competing for work against each other. It was extremely frustrating...

      I worked at Knoll full-time

      Pros

      - Knoll has a fairly good design heritage and is respected in the industry

      Cons

      If your looking for a good job or career (white collar), do not pursue a job in Grand Rapids or Muskegon. They have so many deficiencies it is impossible to list all of them. I'll list a few. The buildings or offices are over 30 years old and have not been updated and are mostly empty. The signs on elevators that say out of use, they have do not cross this line tape in areas, etc. For a amazing design centric furniture...

      Advice to Management

      Better get some leadership in your satellite locations. Current leadership is very poor and in denial. Your products will go the same direction as the facilities. I can tell you that I would never recommend anyone to work there.
