    The culture is what keeps you here!

    Category Business Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany culture is fantastic. Coworkers actually like each other, Summers are celebrated with half-day Fridays, time off is REALLY encouraged (no, really!), dress is casual every day unless there is a meeting, excellent wellness program, and pay is competitive.

    ConsTuition reimbursement leaves a lot to be desired for those wishing to pursue a higher degree. Training/onboarding could be stronger as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to advance your skills and move around the country.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStrong market share with iconic products gives you a feeling of success. You are well-respected in the industry.

    ConsDifficult to react quickly to customer needs due to amount of red-tape at corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold managers accountable for the success of their team. Calibration is demoralizing and unfair due to the forced ratings.

    Great Company!

    Vice President (Current Employee) Dallas, TX (US)

    ProsK-C is a great company built around great brands. It's grounded in a genuinely collaborative environment that provides employees the opportunity to participate and grow. There is a strong sense of core values within the culture.

    ConsK-C is no different than most Multi-national companies. There is tremendous opportunity for individual growth and promotion. This path often requires, or at least will be accelerated, by a openness to relocate for opportunities.

    KC is a great place to work. It's a solid company, and work life balance is prioritized.

    Category Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGood solid company in a relatively stable industry. I work with great people who treat each other with respect, have good communication, and are really nice. Benefits are great, family is a core value. New leadership has been helpful to drive new ideas.

    ConsSometimes process gets in the way of progress. Multiple people in many departments can be working on the same thing without knowing other's work. Communication between departments could be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to drive new and innovative thought to drive business!
