    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Kohler as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Kohler Co fosters a collaborative team environment (due to nature of the company, employees work with product managers, industrial designers, engineers, accountants on a daily and weekly basis) - Resources to learn and grow - Fun company culture

    Cons

    Many opportunities for lateral moves - not necessarily many opportunities to grow within the company - Older generations of employees due to location - have a difficult time attracting young talent

    Former Employee - Product Development Engineer in Sheboygan, WI (US)

    I worked at Kohler as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked as a co-op for 7 months, gaining invaluable experience in product development.
    - excellent, passionate co-workers
    - strong team environment
    - superb company golf discounts

    Cons

    - being family owned, projects are typically forward thinking and therefore slow-paced
    - business sets over-ambitious goals for sales, therefore significant improvement is still marred
    - stuck in the not-so-bustling metropolis of Sheboygan, WI

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Express more interest in hearing from project teams, not just their project leads, or leaders of project leads.
