    Pros

    Midwest Manufacturing was a fun and rewarding work place. The company culture was just what I was looking for. You are rewarded for working hard and you make a difference every day. I will miss working here.

    Cons

    The company has some interesting policies at times on purchasing, but once you get the hang of it is fine. They like to keep their money internal, so if you can get the part through one of the parent company you must.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more people to reduce over time and weekends.

    Pros

    Close to home and guaranteed 40 hrs a week.

    Cons

    Getting to move up in the company is hard to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to know what is goin on out on the floor. They like to sit in office most of the time and don't know what production is like on the floor. They base it off of hear say from other supervisors or team members.

    Ability to work with various functions within the business, it's very easy to ask anyone in the company for help or advice.

    Pros

    Good Hours, Solid Pay, good upward and lateral movement opportunities depending on what type of job you want within Midwest Manufacturing.

    Cons

    Most upper management changes positions every 2 to 3 years, this makes the corporate message a moving target. Most higher level positions require relocation to Eau Claire, WI.
