    Hire people. Being there for a year, I wanted more, but Knoll only has temps to get new ones. Would have enjoyed staying there permanently.

    I worked at Knoll full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Convenient location from all areas - the Lehigh Valley to the Philly suburbs. Interesting product assortment. Employee sales opportunities to buy some of the products.

    Cons

    For such a large company in both associates and sales volume, not advancing with the times in its think and business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates, managers and below.

    Pros

    A dynamic company that continues to provide great products and support to the entire company. Very entrepreneurial, and encourages creative strategies and supports direct access to upper management. People here all enjoy the company and the access to the talented outside individuals we partner with to develop product.

    Cons

    There were some manufacturing issues that made it challenging to work through projects and meet customer expectations. A change in upper management led to these issues being addressed head on and for the last year there has been continuous improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on our great products, but step up our implementing VR technology.

    Pros

    I have only been with Knoll for 4 months now but there are many things that set this organization apart from others:

    The family like atmosphere- Knoll feels and acts like a more traditional company in many ways, Turkeys are given out at Thnksgiving, many paid holidays, most people have long time employment histories here.

    It's evolving - while I am only 4 months new I can see many changes occurring from a t chnology aspect which are creating a more nimble and agile organization. There are a few growing pains but in general are welcomed with a smile.

    Management cares- Management appears to care about its staff and there ability to do well. I have experienced many different managers in my careers and can say that management always tries to do the right thing, especially around family matters and work life balance.

    Improved incentives- in the short period of time I see many improvements in regard to upcoming and newly created methods to compensate its staff.

    Cons

    Just like the Pros, some of the Cons are related to being a large traditional company. As large as Knoll is, I feel that it also feels small at times and suffers a bit from the "way we do things here" syndrome. This however is changing in many areas so as a Con, I see this eventually changing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the improvements around employee incentives and work life balance. While there is much process improvement in place or being implemented, more policy and procedure and more formalized training will benefit the whole company.


  8. "It all right not like it use to be"

    Pros

    It's a job right here in town and it pays every week just do what you suppose to do and you'll be fine

    Cons

    It's dirty in some areas and it's clean in some areas

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your people


  9. "No Internal Promotion"

    Pros

    The company offers a fairly decent salary.

    Cons

    Management will not promote current employees. They would rather have the employee quit and then replace the old position with a higher level new hire.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.

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

    Pros

    Direct Manager in my region is great + DVP. The office environment is top notch. You can make your job your own, there are few set rules of "how" you should do your job.

    Cons

    The variance in benefits is disappointing. Slow to update employees of changes. Too many responsibilities fall to a specific person in each group, squeezes work-life balance.
