    I have been working at Knoll full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The show room is really nice. They get fresh flowers every Monday.

    Cons

    Some of the staff appear to be racist. They barely speak and it feels as if they really don't want you around. Don't feel very comfortable working here!

    Advice to Management

    Be more welcoming and treat everyone the same.

    I have been working at Knoll full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For a self motivated individual this is a great company. You are encouraged to approach each sales opportunity with creativity and thoroughness and based on a customers needs vs a prescribed process
    Flat organization with easy access to executives
    Pay is commensurate with your efforts, though it takes 2-3 years to build up your account base
    Design Recognition - It is so rewarding to mention that you work for Knoll and see the admiration and respect.
    There is never a dull moment and there are never two days that are the same which keeps the job interesting and motivation high
    Suggestions are encouraged, acknowledged and acted upon when feasible
    Talented, smart and genuinely nice co-workers (and management)

    Cons

    There is no written book that tells you how to do something so if you need direction you have to navigate for answers
    Internal technology ramp up is taking longer than anticipated

    Advice to Management

    Incredible new resources and new intiatives in the last year. They are making a huge difference.
