I worked at MPI Research full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Benefits are OK, some nice perks for employees such as learning classes and speakers brought in.

Cons

Unfriendly environment, team work and inclusion are not expected, or encouraged, even from management. President abruptly left after only 18 months and was replaced with owners brother. The company seems to have no idea how to look ahead and forecast, I was hired as a permanent employee, then my position was eliminated 6 months later because business is going downhill.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with the nepotism, entire families working there is not a good business decision. The owner needs to be more involved, and bringing in a whole new HR department would help. The big brother attitude also can be stifling. No career opportunities loses good employees.

    I have been working at MPI Research full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice benefits for employees, nice cafeteria

    Cons

    Management is completely unaware of the doings in their departments, so many people have started their career there they have no idea how unprofessional they are. Oblivious to the environment, favorites are promoted and it takes a really long time to move up or make any more money, the pay is low for the industry. Communication is poor, constant layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please quit hiring people, then laying off. It makes everyone nervous because you don't know if you will be next. Training for your managers would be so helpful, they just do not have a clue and many are unsociable and unapproachable.

    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.
