Pros: jeans to work, decent co-workers, commitment to community, decent salary because of autotrader big pockets
Cons: management in the pmo, focused on perception not results, micro-management, not fun
KBB as a company and most of the people are a good group (with the exception of the PMO). The company is quite old school, very 50's mentality push for leadership with very limited ways of showing you are a leader. With AutoTrader coming in, it has changed. KBB needed bailout but the small, 'quaintness' of the company has gone away.
The projects are – more... not challenging and do not warrant the 'sense of urgency' the job description depicts. You will have a one on one once a week and it will be grueling. You will be micro-managed and potentially bullied if you are not perfect and do not try to speak your mind or have an opinion, the relationship will get worse. If you are a fun person expect that to be put to rest if you are a project manager, and do not be fooled in the interview. Be careful of 'wolves in sheep's clothing.' – less
