Kemet trains its employees and is focused on producing a high quality product. Many employees have worked there more than 20 yrs. The employees are great and the company has good benefits.

KEMET is in a very important global industry, so there is always work to be done. Different offices will definitely have different cultures. Kind of outdated culture in general, seems to be very conservative. They are working hard to update their IT which is good. At the end of the day, it's a company that has been around for 100 years and in a place like that, there will always be old standards/practices that will linger e.g. management will allow working from home when it is needed for convenience (e.g. an appointment, home repairs, etc.) but casually it seems to be frowned upon. Typical days are definitely busy, as I said you will always find work to do. What kind of work entirely depends on what group you are in. Overall a solid company with somewhat outdated and boring but slowly progressing culture, strong leadership, and lots of things to be busy with.

Typical work day was pretty easy. Management was extremely nice, I made a few long term friends. The hardest part was when a tank went down and there was too much down time

I met great people at KEMET and enjoyed working their. It was great going to Simpsonville to see the original headquarters. There is much improvement needed at KEMET as far as caring for their employees better. Showing a genuine interest in valuing their employees. Their benefits are fair and better than a lot of other companies. However, management needs to show more concern for their employees. We lost a fairly new employee when I was working there. She had a sudden illness and passed away. No one from management showed any concern or value for that person. That is a shame. I hope they improve upon this.
Pros
Great People and decent benefits
Cons
No bonus or increase pay.

Enjoyed working with most of the folks in support roles throughout the company as I was a field person. Respected everyone's skills. Did not respect the CEO. Better than everyone. Private plane. Took bonuses on revenue growth that was NOT organic but bought.

Work was satisfying and different everyday. Met alot of good customers doing interesting things. Enjoyed helping them help themselves. Hardest part of the job was all the travel necessary to do a good job.
Pros
Travel, 401K Match, Brain Trust
Cons
Travel, Ceo

The manager treated her employees like trash and HR didn't do a thing about it. The manager before her did the same thing to her and another coworker and nothing was ever done about him, so I wouldn't expect anything to change.

I was fortunate to have worked at KEMET before its IPO, when it was still run by its founder. He was venerated as an extremely capable man throughout the company - and for good reason in my estimation. His legacy is a company that is ethical, strategically focused, and people oriented.

I made many friendships there that I keep to this day, and gained much experience. I can honestly say there was heartfelt camaraderie among team members there, and managers were willing to help mediate any occasional discord. While this may not have been true in every division or functional area throughout the company, we in IT felt well supported by our leadership.


This is a company which I admire to this day, and have fond memories of working for.
Pros
Great work culture, training programs, advancement opportunities
Cons
As a single-market company, quite sensitive to market cycles, often affecting budgets, projects, etc. Less so these days.

Kemet was one best companies in Simpsonville SC to work but they had to down size and layoffs the employees in the past. The work is not hard but very easy. It is a very clean work environment and laid back. There quality is high but management works with there employees.

The provided me with the education and tools I needed to succeed in the position I held. There were plenty of opportunities to advance if one puts his/her mind to it.
Pros
advancement through education

Many of the jobs went to China
