      Mediocre place to work

      Pros

      This company is a good talent aggregator, unfortunately they don't know how to keep people.

      Cons

      Having a work life balance is frowned upon. Comp time is disproportional to extra effort put forth. Diversity in management is lacking.

      Pros

      A lot of responsibility and opportunity to show what you can do. Plenty of opportunity to get different experiences to gain breadth if you want to

      Cons

      Recent headcount reductions left some groups without enough people which is eroding the former benefit of work life balance at KC Engineering has been reduced so much, proper mentoring and talent development cannot occur. People are just trying to keep their heads above water. Management doesn't know how to focus with the limited resources we have and grind people down cause they don't make hard decisions.

      Pros

      Good pay, medical plans ok, company very involved in the community in a positive way

      Cons

      Company ego centric and tends to promote only certain types. Lots of great people are held back from jobs they are qualified for based on Team Leader opinion and recommending that they don't apply for a variety of reasons. If upper management were aware of how often this goes on I don't think they would be happy. Only 4% match on 401k. Lots of great employees but the few who are "headstrong" are not dealt with and continue to bully to get their way. Claim to have work life balance as a priority but there is no consideration of this at the tactical levels.

      Pros

      Decent benefits, lower level employees are fairly nice, the pay was once great for the area but now its more mediocre.

      Cons

      KC is running in 50 different directions at once and it shows, the work/life balance may be nice at other mills but here it is horrid, 12 hour rotating shifts and management hides out in the parking lot to catch anyone coming in late, the "validation" system they have setup is the dumbest thing I have ever seen as you are constantly having to re-interview for your job, very clique based i.e. if you aren't rubbing elbows with the higher ups not only do you stand no chance of promotion but it becomes very hard to get even a regular raise, do not even think of taking a break during a scheduled down you are expected to work your 12 hours with a 15 min lunch any more than that and they start breathing down your neck.
