Pros

After so long, a lot of the individuals begin to feel like family. Time off is plentiful which is great for those with families, and the hours of operation are on par with most comparable organizations.

Cons

Management is bismal. Knowledge rests at the lower levels and an unwillingness to hear or gain advice or ideas from lower level employees is killing the organization. Promotions going to individuals with no experience and a lack of understanding is frustrating. Turnover is extremely high due to disappointment and frustration. No employee feels appreciated and it's not a fun place to work. Supervisors often know more than their counterparts and do much of their jobs with a fraction of their pay creating a huge disparity in pay. There is no middle class..its 20,000 a year or 65 a year. What used to be a great place to work, has turned into a lousy workplace. Individuals in supervisory, administrative and clerical positions need to be paid and respected more. The heart of the company lies within these people, and without a union to protect them and no management to respect them, it's getting worse by the day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value the individuals you currently have employed. Promote from within to strengthen the organization and build loyalty. With absolutely no loyalty and no satisfaction, key employees are not caring anymore about the future of the company. Value your experience, take chances within and maybe you'll get results.

    Pros

    There isn't much else to choose from in the area except a casino and a manufacturer of fine china. Marsh is perhaps the largest of very few companies in the area which require talent in both the electrical and mechanical engineering fields.

    Cons

    Sub-standard compensation and benefits packages for Manufacturing, Engineering, Sales and Support Staff. No other perks can realistically offset the negative impact of a non-competitive wage and benefit package. The standard reason given is sub-standard economic condition of the region. My question is, "How can the economics ever improve unless wages and benefits are increased, thus creating an incentive for economic growth?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My feedback would be to sacrifice that second or third house or car and invest in your talent base. Competitive wages and benefits keep existing talent and draw new talent to the company, thus increasing the regions economic health.

    Pros

    It used to be a family friendly place to work where you had some flexibility. It still offers benefits. A lot of the people who work there are very nice.

    Cons

    The HR dept. seems to think that their place is to make as many people quit as possible. They strive for this by treating people like dirt and writing people up. No raise for going on 3 years now and yet the company keep expanding. Skilled workers are paid far less that they are in similar facilities. No incentive to stay for the long haul as there is no reward for longevity. People are treated like "meat".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better HR manager in there and go back to being a family friendly place. Stop treating workers like they are the enemy. Foster a team spirit.
