Take any of the above parameters Kennametal stands apart and indeed it was a great privilege to be a part of this organisation
Manager Machine Building / Manager Quality (Former Employee) –  Bangalore City, KarnatakaSeptember 9, 2017
Kennametal India Ltd is an MNC known for its excellent operational ethics and innovation driven work culture. Special Purpose Machine Building business rests on its import substitution concept serving Automobile/ Defense / General Engineering sectors. It is unbelievable that management could think of "Make in India" , 100% outsourcing and constant innovation in the distant past (1985) when foreign collaboration for any product was the norm. Of course hardest part of the job was long working hours but it was also the most enjoyable experience as one gained immense knowledge of machine building never possible anywhere else in India
Pros
Very high job satisfaction / great lunch and breakfast / great salary package
Cons
One tends to stay till retirement

Kennametal is a professional run company but some times local managers tend to take advantage and run the show unprofessionally.
Manager - Finance and Taxation (Former Employee) –  BANGALOREMay 9, 2017
Kennametal is a great company to work . For a person who wants to learn , sky is the limit. But the immediate bosses do not engage employees properly but still one can learn despite that . Every company is a good company , some times you get bad bosses .
