    Challenging work, no requirements documents! No design meetings.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to grow with challenging work. However, the team environment really doesn't exist. The person next to you may know what you are looking for, but you have to read and dig it out alone.

    Cons

    Lack of design coordination and documents. Only verbal communication that leaves open any design requirement you may or may not think are necessary

    Advice to Management

    increase interaction about 1000%

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Very close to home which was a huge plus

    Cons

    Management is horrible. I was there for 7 years. Used to be a great place to work until they brought it stupid clowns to run the business who dont know jack about running a business, they also fire people for things that were not there fault. I know from experience. HR also a big joke HR does not have the employee's back. She does whatever her boss tells her. I would recommend working for this company

    Advice to Management

    Should learn to be nicer to employees. Should never hire spouse's thats a really bad idea but you didnt care.

    Pros

    It was close to home, and I was able to work in an industry I have much knowledge of. The guys in the Mogami dept. know their stuff and are super cool.

    Cons

    Marshall is HORRIBLE to their employees. They simply don't care about their employees, and that vibes rolls down the hill from upper management. If you had concerns, they'd be answered with threats. If you have ideas, they would be stolen. If you didn't "roll with" the manager who harassed you in your personal email, you would be threatened yet once again. When I was there, there wasn't even proper HR. (That is if you consider proper to be someone who gets high at lunch and gives unsolicited info about other's salaries.)

    Advice to Management

    Honestly "owner", you entrust your company to sociopathic, threatening, unfair bozos. Also, there were constant threats from the owner's wife, who when she because of her lack of ability to communicate properly would constantly blame engineering and marketing for her mistakes. Wow. what a horrible place. I'm so glad I'm free of it.

    Pros

    Company thrived in niche market with marginal entrepreneurial spirit. This used to be a great company.

    Cons

    Lack clear directions how to break through current mold to grow, multi-directional objectives which impedes substantial impact and drain of resources. Poor upper management with old fashioned curses and unprofessional verbal attacks that's sometimes personal and below the belt. Highly tensed working environment that leads to overall low morale and motivation.

    Pros

    The relationships made with the co-workers are great.

    Cons

    In order for a company to be great, it needs to start from the top and work its way down. Sadly, The CEO inherited this company from his daddy. He barley finished high school and has no real business or leadership sense. He hides behind his personal accountant who is also the CFO. Both the CFO and CEO are absent from the company 85% of the time, as the CFO has his own accounting firm and the CEO stays at home playing with his microphones. The CEO relies on his friend to run the company. He's the Engineering manager, but sadly, his engineering skills are outdated and he has a personal vendetta with the head of Sales and Marketing which prevent progress. The funny thing is that he's not even a Marshall employee, he's a contractor and gets paid a ridiculous amount simply because he's The CEOs friend. He's also absent often and relys on the lead engineer to develop things, absent from Sales and Marketings knowledge . As a result, there is no real leadership at this company. Promotions never happen.Even worse, the company doesn't provide feedback on how the employee is doing. The pay is terrible and whats worse is that the folks in the warehouse and production are treated the worst of all. They are paid minimum wage, and are treated like 2nd class citizens. While the company has the potential of doing great things, they prevent themselves from going to the next level because the lack the leadership, vision and structure they need in order to do so. While this sounds as if I am trashing the place, I'm not. These are all indisputable facts. If you are considering employment here, take the above mentioned into consideration.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should delegate his responsibilities to someone who knows business and is willing to be there on a full time basis. Fire the Engineering Manager. His time is past and keeping him around because he's a friend only sends the wrong message. Promote from within and build a better team that have business knowledge and leadership abilities.
