Company Culture

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".

Internal Communication

People listen here and respond.

Gender Equality

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.

Career Development

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.

Work-Life Balance

It really depends on your position. If your job includes travel... you will do a lot of it here.

Company Image

They are leaders in their industry.

Job Security

Do your job and you have nothing to worry about.

Handicapped Accessibility

Many more handicapped people have been hired recently.

Challenging Work

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.
