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

    Pros

    Hours, wages, time off. Being able that work independently. Opportunity to move up within the company. Flexibility when need time off.

    Cons

    For non-union employees HR is not there for you. The company want you to think they care about you as a person but that is only in words. When you need them they are nowhere to be found.

    Advice to Management

    My advise would be to the Kohler’s themselves. They need to re-evaluate the entire chain of command and see how their hourly associates are really being treated.

    I have been working at Kohler full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, strong ethical policy, high quality top leadership team, strong brand value in trade, company on the upswing in India.

    Cons

    organisation is too slow to react to market changes, heavily process oriented even at the cost of losing customers. not customer focussed.

    Advice to Management

    the top management in India is very high quality and are planning the best for the organisation. the advice from me would be to control the attrition that was seen in the top management itself over the past 24-36 months.
