Culture and Values
I would not recommend this company as a great place to work. They give you the impression that they care about you and make Kohler look like a glamorous place to work, when actually they are looking to just fill positions. When the company runs into slow periods or minimal growth, they look to quickly dump many of their people. Instead of working through difficult times, they eliminate people who have dedicated many years of service to the company. They really only care about their bottom line, their associates are an after thought, and yet they claim to be a company with stewardship as one of their guiding principals.

Pros and Cons
occasional company outings ....
When the economy gets bad they eliminate many of their associates, people are not an important asset

I have accepted this job to learn Fanuc Robot Programming but I have learned most of the time by myself, which is fine. I would stay with them if it's not because of the environment (Fiberglass everywhere).

Pros and Cons
Work on your own pace
They don't accept suggestion for system development
