    I worked at MPI Research full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people, social atmosphere, great learning opportunity. Great vacation and decent health benefits.

    Cons

    Work life balance can get extremely skewed toward the work side. The industry is difficult to predict and workload fluctuates wildly with hiring often lagging way behind. Can be blacklisted for other opportunities within the company if you are good at your job and your department wants to keep you. Pay is barely competetive and was the main reason for leaving. Often went several years without a raise, and shown "hypothetical raises" that we never even got. Intense allergen exposure, and job could be dangerous and extremely physical unless you work in the office setting.

    Pros

    Great place to work, and wonderful environment for all employees. The surpervisors were very supportive and were very personable. They took the time to listen to you and treated you fairly.

    Cons

    The training process was slow and limited. This howver was probably due to keeping production schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the QC of your people up to snuff so that you get a great product for your clients.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Mattawan, MI

    I worked at MPI Research

    Pros

    Give you a great deal of responsibility right from the start which allows you to earn a great deal of experience in your field very rapidly. Due to the rapid expansion that has been happening there you were kept very busy and you got to address many different types of challeges. It is a very friendly work environment with a very family oriented atmosphere. Great place for a first job.

    Cons

    Commincation from the top down is very poor and there was not a lot of opportunity for carreer advancement. Mediocre pay for the work that they were having me do. MPI has also been grow faster that could be sustained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees.
