    I have been working at Mercury Marine full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities at any job function and plenty of other opportunities to move to other jobs or functions within the company.

    Cons

    Its a big company, so sometimes it slow and tedious to work through the red tape to meet goals and objectives,

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to keep on doing what you are doing as far as cost containment and introduction of new products.


  2. Middle of the road mid sized manufacturing company

    I have been working at Mercury Marine full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    New product introductions provide for some new challenges. Adopted summer hours (half day on Fridays during summers). decent benefits. company sales have been strong so have decent profit sharing

    Cons

    high hourly turnover because of 2 tiered pay scale. not a lot of salary employee development for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    better employee development. when you finally get a good manager, they overload him/her with work to compensate for other poor performing managers - eventually push good managers out with too much work.

    I have been working at Mercury Marine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for advancement and opportunities to learn and grow no matter what position or level of experience is.

    Cons

    Since it is a very large company, it's possible to get lost in the shuffle so to speak. The personal touch is sometimes missing but being anonymous is not always a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees, especially the lowest level ones. They are the ones doing the work and will have the best ideas on how to do it and do it even better.

    The benefits are good. It is nice having a cafe so you do not need to bring lunch and the food is good.

    They could have a better training program instead of making people figure stuff out on there own.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, very good bonus in strong years. The company has improved their communications to the employees, showing strong growth in the Fond du Lac area.

    Cons

    Engineering department is severely restrained in upward mobility, not too much help in career development. HR department is terrible, lost key personnel during the recession and replacements are barely adequate.
