    I worked at Kohler full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you land in the right department the atmosphere is great. They promote learning and advancement. Culture is getting more progressive. If you are into the outdoors and like a safe, quiet, area to live in, this will fit you. They pay well for the area, but don't try to compare the pay to large urban areas. They will not match that.

    Cons

    They will work you till you drop in some areas. Understaffed, overworked. I pushed back and am no longer there because of it. My department had a high manager turnover. I did not fit well with the last one. The HR people do not have your back. They did not give me time to transfer out.

    Advice to Management

    Place more value on your long time employees, keep improving the culture. Staff up to appropriate levels.

    I have been working at Kohler full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair pay, self-managing work, hard workers recognized for accomplishments. Lots of opportunities for learning new skills, working directly with customers, and internal networking.

    Cons

    Hard workers frequently left to pick up the slack of co-workers. Management across the resort is full of out-of-touch poor communicators. Company prefers to hire from outside to fill gaps in staffing. Resort holds onto unskilled workers because of how understaffed every single department is.
