  1. Awesome company!

    I have been working at Monoflo International

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits and eager owner. Always looking for more business to grow and expand company. Very easy to talk with.

    Cons

    There are two plants and sometimes things got lost or misunderstood in the communication process. Sending samples via UPS can be expensive and time consuming.


  2. No benefits available to hourly employees, and what was available was not worth having

    Pros

    Casual environment and that is about it.

    Cons

    Not happy, not training before sending me to the bulls, but ok to blame me if I did not return with the prize, low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so self-centered.

    Pros

    I don't have any major complaints about this company having been with them for over three years before moving on. It is a family. I truly enjoyed going to work everyday, while not looking forward to the work, the people and atmosphere here make it worthwhile. One aspect that impressed me most, once again, were the relationships. It's not uncommon to see a higher leveler employee engaged in a genuine conversation with an operator. I don't believe that you can find this at many other companies, especially in the manufacturing industry,

    Cons

    On compensation, if you keep your head down and work hard, those in management will take notice. While you will not receive a raise after your first paycheck, as others here have seemed to assume, they will take notice and your situation will change for the better. The work is tough, and from what I've gather here its been more than some could handle; however, that is manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It's ignorant to think that those in management positions cannot learn as they gain experience like everyone else. Throughout my experience at Monoflo, I was satisfied with the leadership and guidance that they afforded to me.

    Pros

    Environment is faced paced, work load demanding and the career experience here is nothing short of truly rewarding. Opportunity to team with industry experts has proved enlightening. Fantastic culture with a focus on working hard, winning and loyalty coupled with being rewarded and a family first mantra.

    Cons

    As with any growing company, there are some pains associated with daily life. Nothing that can not be overcome and a million times better than the alternative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the culture and energy, it is why there has been such success.

    Pros

    Lateral organization structure allows for easy lines of communication from top to bottom, consistent re-investment into improving current product base and expanding into new products, avoids the 'corporate' feel despite being a decent sized business supplying products all over the globe, CEO & GM deeply involved with improving processes and procedures, motivated salesforce, performing your job at a high level does not go unnoticed

    Cons

    While not really a con, the environment is extremely fast paced and can change rapidly so it is certainly not for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the improvement of existing product base and the development of new products, but also in bringing the right people on board.

    Pros

    Corporate culture is positive, Senior Management is easy to both talk to and work with/for. Growth path with new products is challenging but rewarding. This is a good time to be or become a part of Monoflo as the growth affords opportunities for those who are desirous to make a mark using their talents and abilities.

    Cons

    Growth also results in a shortage of qualified management support at key positions.

    Advice to Management

    Support middle managers by providing more delegated responsibility and defined limits of authority. Communicate expectations and sit down more frequently with middle managers to both review their results to date and provide direction/training on areas of weakness.

    Pros

    It is a job. Quality products.

    Cons

    Some higher management are completely clueless on what is going on in their department. Too much of a mess that noone cares to address.

    Advice to Management

    Until people account for their mistakes and decides to take aim at the problem, with the intent to fix it, not "band-aid" it, I cannot have a positive view about this company.

    Pros

    -Good small company to get a start at -Friendly People -Company is growing with new machinery and personnel -You will stay very busy with plenty of work

    Cons

    -Lower pay than other companies in the area for both upper management and floor personnel -Not many benefits (little vacation and holidays, no sick pay, and poor health insurance plan) -Ownership changes his mind daily so your project tasks are changing daily -Long hours and most management is expected to be on call 24 / 7 / 365 -Salary you are hired in on will likely be the salary you will leave with, not many raises given -A lot of hire / fire with management, only a few management at company for more than 5 years. I had 4 supervisors in the 3 years I was there. All four were fired after only being at the company for less than a year.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should try and not micro-manage so much and trust the employees they hired. Leadership should also recognize people do have lives outside of Monoflo and would rather not have to take phone calls and make unscheduled trips to the facilities at midnight or on the weekends.


  11. Could have been better

    Pros

    Some really good people in most areas of the company. Selling as low cost producer is a welcome change to trying to sell intangible benefits. Product is as good or better than competitive products. Ownership and management knows the molding business.

    Cons

    Management has minimal experience outside of Monoflo and often uses a "lets try this" approach. Ownership tends toward impulse direction. Management changes territories and market frequently. Production overbooking can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    The knowledge is there in most levels of this company and they have made some good progress in areas. Nothing is going to change.
