    Pros

    Best paying business within a 5-10 mile radius, when you include the large amount of overtime.

    Nepotism, favoritism, deception, lack of transparency, harsh working conditions, and no upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and take a look at the people you currently treat like cattle and ask yourself, how long can this be sustained? The obvious answer is before your eyes.

    I have been working at Kohler full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Standard pay comparable to local average values.
    Pension & 401K with some matching.
    Vacation increases with seniority.
    Your own personal preferences will determine whether you want acknowledge that the company wants to engage it employees, and promote camaraderie.
    Strong partner with the community.
    On site training and development center.
    I beleive that most people like working here.

    Cons

    Some groups that should have better communication with other groups, need to get out of their silos. Too many clicks.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing levels nee to become more flexible, and cross functional assignments may help reduce the silo mentality. however it comes with a risk for learning and understanding the methods of other processes.

    I worked at Kohler part-time

    Pros

    Kohler clearly appreciates their workers, based on the employee benefits, including the health & wellness program. I had a lot of friendly people in my department.

    Cons

    Training is VERY lengthy, it may be a bit excessive for an entry level office position (at least for someone with years of prior experience).
