    Pros

    The retirement program is excellent if you can make it to retirement on a mediocre salary.
    Hours are great. Work load is typically fairly light.

    Cons

    Most co workers are extremely disrespectful. If you are looking for a team to be on where everyone looks out for each other this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage a respectful work place.

  6. "Response to "Great Company & Huge Organization = Ample Opportunity""

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

    Pros

    I'm a former Vice President within a KCTG business unit. I felt compelled to respond to a post by an anonymous Wichita employee that posted "Good people - mostly Midwestern. Koch doesn't recruit from Ivy League for a reason. People here care about their families and work good hours. " I would reply that Koch Industries hires on the basis of values-not on the basis of one's Alma Mater. I am currently enrolled in a Masters' Degree program at Brown University (yes, Ivy League) and any one of my colleagues have the requisite value set to be a Koch employee. To state that Koch doesn't recruit or hire Ivy League graduates is a contradiction to Koch's principles.

    Cons

    None noted- overall a good organization.
