    I have been working at Morton Buildings full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Private family owned, core values, advancement opportunites, profit sharing

    Cons

    Overcoming poor performance, hiring and bad habits left behind by past leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is great to be a part of a company that dominates it's industry and continues to pay it's employees well. This company was built on great people capable of doing great things and we once again are starting to see this return to Morton Buildings.

    I worked at Morton Buildings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well some people that are there are great people, just had their heads in the "Morton Building Cookie Jar" way too long.

    Cons

    Where to start... Was promised a company car on the start of my job... so I took the lower salary because figured the car would offset it, never saw a car... When a employee left, they would give you their duties on top of yours and NEVER is a pay raise to be discussed as it won't ever happen. The only ones that are happy in the company is the upper management "the good ol boys club". They will make sure to screw you on benefits , if you smoke they will charge you $40.00 a month for what they say is because smokers cost them more each month. If you are a salary employee they will say right off the bat that to do your job and to do it satisfactory you are to work a min of 55 hours a week, no you won't get paid for those hours worked but you are required to work them. The benefits are cut rate, and VERY expensive, the 401k I wouldn't bother because they will cheat you out of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looking forward to when you are all investigate for fraud, and receiving kickbacks on contracts. I will laugh my rear off when that little good ol boy clan goes down. No I am not even bitter just think it is so sad how you screw over so many that are in desperate need of a job and you just prey on them. I am so happy I chose a bigger and better pasture because yours is so full of crap. they were finally happy that they made a profit last year but the only ones to see that were management, they swept the true numbers under the table so no one would know what they made. Heck the Sr management fired Neihouser 2 years ago, and now it is run by people that are just family and no clue how to sell water in a desert. They think they are the best company out there, I will give them that they build a nice building, but price over value it is best to look elsewhere and not get screwed over by the hidden charges Morton will do to you. Hey also try training employees instead of just putting them at their desk and walking away!

    Pros

    Morton's has alot of work, will teach hard work ethics,and they are very organized. A great place for a high school graduate to come into and learn what work should be. Days go by fast when you are having fun and working with great guys.

    Cons

    Pay is not good, a lot of sweat and fun turns into tears and disappointment on payday. Personally I feel, too many fat cats in corporate. I also believe alot of the pay issues stem from OSHA non-sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its only going to get harder to find people to work hard for you, these boys ever figure out what competitive wages are you could be in trouble.

    Pros

    Great product with great history.
    A lot of freedom to do things your own way as long as it gets results.

    Cons

    Five presidents in six years.
    Very top heavy which leads to higher costs to the customer.
    Employees wear too many hats which fore you to do a lot of things average or worse instead of a few things great.
    So hungry to be the great of yesterday they have forgotten how they got there in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The family should step aside. They are too emotionally involved. The good old boy system has caused you to promote you senior management well beyond what they are capable of. It's not that they aren't good employees, only they are now making key decisions they are not qualified to make. You also have lower level employees that are capable of much more than you are giving them credit for. You can be great again but right now it appears you are on auto-pilot. Get the right person to lead and get the ones that think they are the leaders out of the way.
