    Pros

    Great benefits and an interesting place to work. The company is currently going through some major changes and adapting to modern and lean techniques. Since Mac Don is still at the bottom of their learning curve there are plenty of changes to keep things interesting. .

    Cons

    Some parts of the company are still hesitant or resistant to modern manufacturing methods. These people are hindering the progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep changing. Keep updating.

    MacDon Industries both good and bad

    Pros

    Great benefits package fully funded by the employer. Some great people work there. The company shares profits with employees in the form of an xmas bonus.

    Cons

    A lot of dead weight is tolerated. Everyone gets the same raise and bonus regardless of their performance. There is no incentive or reward for being a top performer. Overtime is not fairly compensated. Morale has declined significantly over the years due to ineffective management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open about communicating with employees, and lead by example. Reward good work, and deal with poor performers in order to gain/hold the respect of your staff.
