Graduate Apprentice Trainee (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaJuly 25, 2019
Nice place to work and learn about cutting tools. But it is best to join as permanent employee. As graduate trainee, it's very difficult to be taken as permanent employee, management behave like they own the company.

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
