    I have been working at Koch Industries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Koch has been a fantastic company to work for! I have been given the opportunity to travel, to learn more than I would have thought possible, and to grow not only as an employee but as an individual. Koch holds its values very high and expects the same from its employees. And this leads to an evironment of success, learning, and growth. It has been a pleasure to work for Koch and I plan to continue that journey as long as they will allow.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say at this time.
