- Krones inc.21.Apr 2018
Pretty relaxed place to work, but you do have to work. Most people I met leaned to the Conservative side. You won't get any points here for progressive thinking.
Support from management
This is such a broad subject. If you have issues in work or in life, they will talk with you and help if you are open to such a thing. They don't like to fire good employees.
Freedom to work independently
Again, depends on your position within the company. If you know your job, expect a thumbs up on the level of "have-at-it".
People listen here and respond.
I really don't know about this. I traveled most of the 10+ years that I( worked there.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Respected. One person had his 50th year anniversery working there last year.
Depends who you are and what department. I got pigeon holed and was not allowed to grow. In the end, that is pretty much why I left.
Overall compensation for your work
Most companies have low balled middle class workers. Krones is no different. Their health insurance has been terrible compared to when I first started working there.
It really depends on your position. If your job includes travel... you will do a lot of it here.
They are leaders in their industry.
Do your job and you have nothing to worry about.
Many more handicapped people have been hired recently.
Have at it... if you aren't challenged, you're doing it wrong.
Inclusive / Diverse
They aren't on a bus line; however, in the last couple of years that I worked there, diversity increased. It is a plus if you are bilingual: Spanish mostly, but French also.
Suggestions for improvement
- * Improve worker compensation. * Krones should quit the nonsense Health Insurance Plans that penalize you for not tracking everything you eat and do. * Road Warrior Travelers should be given a better break when it comes to how they travel. New policies of parking in remote parking lots and etc. are a drain on your front line people. Don't wear them out with nonsense policies designed to save a few dollars.
What I like about the company
Stable. A leader in their industry with a quality product line. Always on the leading edge of technology.
What I dislike about the company
Recent Travel Policy changes.
