What employees are saying

I love the spirit of being an employee-owner. I think we have incredible people that care about why we do what we do as well as our friends that we work alongside of. Great ideas are encouraged and I feel like KCI has supported me every step of the way along my career path.

I am provided an environment that allows me to thrive creatively and professionally. I get what I put into it and I feel valued. My work and my team matter to the firm and we are appreciated for our efforts. I also love the work-life balance and while the financials are important, we focus more on the individual than the numbers on a spreadsheet. Finally, the ESOP is amazing!

I am very passionate about my position and the outcome I envision. KCI helps me to realize more potential on the road to my/our success.

I feel challenged to help grow KCI as an employee owner. I have the utmost confidence in, and respect for, KCI's senior leadership team which makes it easy to be in lockstep with our common goals and strategic growth plan.
