Company Culture

Overall culture is very discouraging. People like the benefits but no one likes the culture which is management heavy and offers no encouragement, only criticisms.

Teamwork

There is no team mentality here... each is out for him or herself. The word "team" is tossed around freely but not a concept this company understands.

Freedom to work independently

If you can't take the bull by the horns and do what you have to do to survive, you won't. Training is, basically, learn as you go and they only track errors not anything you did right.

Internal Communication

Slow and sometimes non-existent. Very much a "need to know" system and sometimes even if you need to know, you are left out.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Knox succeeds because of its founder and his genius and current employees, they really care. The management is often mocked now but people are good at what they do and do it well despite horrible managment

Career Development

Very little to none.

Job Security

No one, not one person there ever feels secure for more than a day or two at a time.

Challenging Work

Loved the work and working with first responders and co-workers.

Inclusive / Diverse

My dept was heavily Hispanic and the manager was also and she was definitely biased towards those employees. She even allowed them to speak Spanish to each other so other employees would not know what was said.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Offer an encouraging environment and good training.

What I like about the company

The work in and of itself is fun and challenging.

What I dislike about the company

Management is just bad, BIg downers most of them, not worthy of respect

Company Culture

Excellent benefits and pay but owner is a feared dictator firing at the drop of a hat. Independent thinking is discouraged unless you agree with the owner. Many of the highly qualified individuals I worked with over my 10 year tenure were fired after my departure. People generally stay there because of the pay and benefits, but no one's job is secure.

Freedom to work independently

If you are in one of the technical engineering fields.

Internal Communication

You learn only what the owner wants you to know. A great HR Manager.

Gender Equality

Many women were disliked by the female owner; dependent on level of subservience to her.

Career Development

If you are liked by the owner you can advance

Office / Work Environment

Lovely office. Brand new in 2004.

Work-Life Balance

No such thing. The company is everything. No one gets to telecommute.

Company Image

Makes a very good product

Job Security

No one at Knox has job security

Inclusive / Diverse

many different nationalities, but African Americans are less than 1%

What I like about the company

Excellent benefits and very good pay. Company makes a good product and stands behind it with excellent customer service. Beautiful office a lovely place to work.

What I dislike about the company

A dictatorship by current owner, employees publicly humiliated When owner upset. Firings based in personality clashes. Favoritism. No career development except for tuition reimbursement.
