With the current environment no one is sure if the organization will sustain. Department and most of the company is extremely lean in head count and that leaves a lot of work for a few people. Causing stress as well.
Pros
Good work/life balance
Cons
Headcount to lean in most areas.

New employees started getting hired in with no experience topped out in my pay class while people who had been there 10+ years started walking off. I was told about all these benefits they were giving us. like matching up 3% of our 401k. And raises but I only receive the bonuses at end of year. The covid took pretty much everything they were offering
Pros
Paid lunch
Cons
Management, and last min over time

No as diverse as they say the place is. You will find yourself doing the same work every day, especially if you are an engineer. Wouldn't recommend it to someone interest in high challenging projects.
Pros
Location is cheap, Management is okay and improving
Cons
repetitive work, not an inclusive place.

Knoll takes pride in their products, services and team. They share that enthusiasm with their employees by way of interacting, rewards when goals are met, annual bonuses, catered lunches, and quarterly meetings. There is great incentive to continue your career with Knoll.
Pros
Great salary, annual bonuses, team atmosphere
Cons
Possible lay-offs, expensive healthcare insurance

HR personnel is terrible, you have to call and schedule an appointment and most times never get a response. The only policy that is enforced is break times and attendance. If you don't feel like doing your quality checks, don't do it, nothing will happen even if you make bad parts. Company 401k match has been stopped for YEARS, health insurance is bad. 2 tiered pay scale makes long term associates feel like they have a target on their back so company can replace with lower tier pay associates.
Pros
None

Management isn`t that good. People that should have been fired they let come back to work. Communication is bad. When you get good temps working with you they usually get moved to another department. The work itself is alright but at times can be stressful. Some of the machines break down more than they should. Seeing some coworkers that you actually like is a better part of the job. Over all the place is going down hill over the years.
Pros
I get a pay check and benefits.
Cons
I just don't like being there. It puts me in a bad mood most of the time.

Management is understanding and generally cares about the employees. During the COVID shutdown, the plant stayed open. The plant provided lunches once to twice a week. They are consistently cleaning and making sure everyone is well enough to come in and work; no fevers, etc.
Pros
Somewhat a light atmosphere, decent benefits, time off flexible
Cons
Pay is a little low, some benefits are a bit rough, upward mobility

At face value, as a new employee entering the knoll workplace, it seems like a great place. As time progresses though, you learn and realize that it isn't such a place. Management is poor and unorganized. The management hierarchy is so vertical that nothing gets done. Compensation does not meet the expectations of the work required. Under pay. Poor management. Poor benefits. The only good place to be in this company is in an executive/director position.

1st project Prelude was to shut down GR operations. Muskegon facilities are next massive furlough during pandemic. Shrinking benefits lackluster pay. VP of Operations is a lying cheating scoundrel. He told us he had 3 rules to live by but did not know rule #3. THEN he came up with 5 rules to live by which I'm sure he looked up on bing ( yeah not even google!) Jesus only had 2 rules so it's kind of funny. Everyone mocked him behind his back.
Pros
pizza parties and popsicles
Cons
plant closings

Not a bad place to work. Tasks are mildly mundane, day goes by quickly if you stay busy. Breaks could be a bit longer, lunch is paid. OT seems pointless often. Paint line stops regularly. good place to make some good easy quick money.
Pros
Plenty of hours, good pay

My direct leader is a great mentor and super supportive! The work environment is very much a team environment as we solve business problems everyday. We are a lean company, but you are able to immediately see the fruits of your labor.

Excellent Professional Culture. Tight-knit community, easy to learn and get to know everyone in your department and people in supporting roles. Constant communication and updates in what is happening within the organization.
Pros
Ability to wear multiple hats; departments run very lean
Cons
Departments tend to silo'd which can cause duplication of tasks.

The union really made the difference in the factory. Higher ups in the company made some idiotic decisions, but I imagine that's the same no matter where you go.

Even though this company made 1.05 BILLION in profit last year they seem to only want more and as a result they close their facilities to save even more money

They really treat you like family, hence why a lot of families work there together. They treat you fairly and do a lot of activities to help the environment.
