    Good experience learning engine design.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits, very good bonus in strong years. The company has improved their communications to the employees, showing strong growth in the Fond du Lac area.

    ConsEngineering department is severely restrained in upward mobility, not too much help in career development. HR department is terrible, lost key personnel during the recession and replacements are barely adequate.

    Great Company to Work For

    ConsSmall marketing department, needs to grow with marketing research and to be more hands on in it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Temp in Supply Chain

    Temporary (Former Employee)

    learn how to treat people

    Auditor (Current Employee)
    Fond du Lac, WI

    ProsInsurance from day one, big company with lots of room for movement, or so I was told

    Conswell, I was terminated after 5 weeks for "failure to fit into culture and department and not meeting expectations". I was interviewed by 6 different people and my manager made the "executive decision" to terminate me; I guess I not only fooled her but they other people I interviewed with separately. The place is a revolving door out in the plants. Also, the city of Fond du Lac is a dump, glad I didn't move there.

    Advice to Senior Managementtreat people with respect

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Current Employer in FDL

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Fond du Lac, WI

    ProsMercury is a great company to work for. They have some of the most talented people working on the shop floor. There are many opportunities to advance within the company, even positions at corporate.

    ConsThe mindset of most employees are generating the most engines and not so much about quality engines. This is the fault of management. The culture needs major reform to a Quality and safety culture. Depending on who you report to, your work/life balance may be off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company put safety as their #1 priority, but failed to make it a priority because not every manager/supervisor is open to let their direct reports go home for doctor's appointment...shame on the company for not having any policy to help the fellow employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
