    Pros

    I can't speak for the manufacturing operations, but in salaried business process areas, it is a relatively good company to work for. They are very good at hiring and retaining excellent people, so there is plenty of talent and a "nice" atmosphere is valued and maintained.

    Cons

    There is more than the typical amount of management dysfunction. Silos of authority are sacrosanct causing logical absurdities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some good management consultants to totally redesign the management structures of the company, then implement at least most of the recommendations.

    Centralize Information Technology authority and implement a cohesive IT strategy throughout the company.

    Trust respect family values fullfilment of goals growth. This is a company with people value and core values to be the best

    Cons

    The business is changing all the time we need to react to promotion activity and new item introductions. look at competition closer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    distributor incentives need to be more meaningful Fuel cards for incentives. New items need more promotions. Core items need to be run more often with deeper discounts

    Pros

    Mckee has decent medical insurance. They also pay a fair wage. They are very health conscious. They provide a clinic and a health coach and also extra programs for health and fitness.

    Cons

    Some lines have to work on Sundays, which I consider part of the weekend, A day to spend with family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management wants your input on reducing waste...then they change the rules and Want you to waste product, without getting any input from the employees...Senior Management wants employees to train on different jobs...than the supervisors won't let anyone train on their line, because of labor, then when employees want time off...they can't have subs. With some of the lines being so slow and employees not getting their hours, this would be the best time to train.

    Pros

    Very open with information. They want to hear what you have to say and are dedicated to making McKee a great place to work. Compensation and benefits are competitive. There is tremendous longevity among the workforce and an opportunity for advancement, if you are willing to stick around. The team is very open to diversity and variation in thinking. The family is actively involved in the business and has the competence to perform in the positions they hold.

    Cons

    While the senior leaders have good intentions there are many great programs, processes and procedures developed but not being actively used and likewise, many dysfunctional programs, processes and procedures being used. Each division is a silo i.e. transportation, distribution, manufacturing and field sales and within each of those divided further within each. This causes the organization to often times work against itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the silos. Create one HR function, one IT function and etc. The confusion caused by the division in these functional areas causes employee dissatisfaction and the inability to get a straight answer- most often at the first line level.
