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

    Pros

    The people you work with are great.

    Cons

    They are not consistent with anything. One week you are doing these certain tasks and then the next you are not. You are moved to a new job with promises, then moved back to original job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few soar head but over all good people.

    Decent job, low pay, advancement is fairly unlikely.

    Current Employee - Technician in Georgetown, KY

    I have been working at MPW full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fairly easy job. Lots of slack. Fairly reasonable insurance. Laid back atmosphere helps prevent stress. Forced overtime is a rare occurrence.

    Cons

    Low pay, unlikely to advance, few training opportunities. Little opportunity for personal growth or learning. Extremely dirty job, not for clean freaks or the faint of heart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take interest in your employees and train them. Help them help you.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hebron, OH
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hebron, OH

    I worked at MPW full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you live out by Hebron, OH, it is one of few local employment options. The commute is appealing for some and probably is a reason why people stay here - because they don't want to travel farther for work.

    Cons

    - Below market compensation
    - Erratic and self-centered owner
    - lack of job security
    - harsh foul language from management
    - light levels of sexual harassment - in appropriate and uncomfortable comments and touching from director level managers and owner
    - Constant internal stories/rumors about 1) job sites not being managed safely - lacking the correct safety equipment, 2) illegal disposal of chemicals, and 3) illnesses contracted on job sites not quarantined (based on my experience, these claims seemed very plausible)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide that how you treat people is important, it's your legacy. Decide you want to be better and get help from management trainers, attend seminars and read leadership books.

    I have been working at MPW

    Pros

    The company culture is fun. People are friendly and will be willing to help with questions you may have. Company has been and will be growing/expanding, and so will have a pretty good number of career opportunities.

    Cons

    Below-average compensations and benefits. Promotions from within is very limited and slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most employees feel underpaid and undervalued.

    High turnover at this company is due to management's philosophy of taking care of themselves before employees.

    I worked at MPW

    Pros

    Many departments are growing and evolving which causes opportunities for people who want to get involved.

    Cons

    Lack of management support. Selfish and irrational decisions made by managers that are not based on individual performance but perceived performance based on gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Philosophy is set at the top. Management is setting the tone. You should make sure it is a tone that people want to follow.
