Local management has several managers who were promoted because of who they know, not what they know.
The KC culture solves problems similar to the way the children's story of the three little pigs.
First they develop many processes and policies that will warn them of a potential problem,
Then they hire large volumes of new colleagues (who are later outsource) to identify problems.
They never understand the importance of the last piggy's actions. who eliminated the problem.
KC rarely eliminates the problem,
WHY because the management who are in charge are not qualified in there fields and are not confident enough to risk making a change. remember they manipulated the situation to place themselves in a better position, so they are not replaced by a new comer, because KC down size every couple of years, KC management culture is take as much knowledge from the new colleagues to better themselves. they call this building talent - "their own"
SO if you are thinking of working for KC, know up front they will want to know all you know, because they are preparing for the next round of down sizing.
The KC world headquarters is in Dallas, after a trip there they asked me why is Neenah so dysfunctional, So Dallas is well aware of the management culture and allow it to remain dysfunctional.
In my 30 years of working through out the Midwest, KC tops the chart for lack of Integrity.
Best of Luck,
They are a Bait and Switch company.
