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.
Good work/life balance
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
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.
Location is cheap, Management is okay and improving
repetitive work, not an inclusive place.
disregard of human life,and also traitors yo the america first mentality that all large companies should be setting an example of.The rederict of the multiple layoffs of good employees destroys the moral.And not to mention the freezing of raises for five years at a time.
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.
Great salary, annual bonuses, team atmosphere
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.
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.
I get a pay check and benefits.
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.
Somewhat a light atmosphere, decent benefits, time off flexible
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.
pizza parties and popsicles
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.
Plenty of hours, good pay
After 22 years, job was eliminated due to COVID-19 and I was not given an opportunity to redeploy elsewhere in the company. Enjoyed the work and the people I worked with.
Flexible work schedule
loyalty and great work was not always recognized or appreciated
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.
Ability to wear multiple hats; departments run very lean
Departments tend to silo'd which can cause duplication of tasks.
