    Pros

    Best workplace Culture I've been a part of. MBM is not just a talking point.

    Cons

    Value Add Pay Mentality seems to just be a way to blame employees for their low pay, but then when you prove yourself, the raises are not comparable.

    Thank you for all your hard work and dedication at Koch for the past 8-10 years. I’m happy to read of your experience with MBM; our company culture is something we take very seriously. It’s an expectation that compensation is reviewed annually with employee and supervisor; as a current employee I encourage you to share your concerns with your supervisor or HR contact. Thank you again for your review, Cali from Talent Solutions

Employee Story
Richard read anything and everything he could about the business and its philosophy, Market-Based Management®. His mom would send him every article she could find that mentioned Koch. Eventually, he got a hold of Charles Koch’s book, “Good Profit.” From that point on, his goal was to get a job at Koch. That goal would become his North Star and push him forward as he served the rest of his sentence and endured the hardships of life incarcerated. No longer would he allow his past mistakes to define who he would be in the future. “I got a lot of pushback,” he said. “I don't know how I convinced myself that it was a realistic goal, but I did. I was confident if I tried to apply the principles I was learning from the book, such as Principled Entrepreneurship™ and a continued dedication to learning and improving myself, that I was going to get there.” #secondchance #secondchancehiring
