    I have been working at Mosaic Company (Minnesota)

    Pros

    Hourly workers and supervisors are generally great. Most lower level employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    Much of a "Us vs Them" feeling with management. They have their favorites whom they promote quickly.
    You need to latch onto the person who hires you and ride the "coat tails". Promotions have no objective selection process other than who they like to work with.
    Long drive to work if you want to live in a populated area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Selection process needs objectivity. Too many "secret" files on employees and yearly reviews mean nothing.

    Director level favoritism / nepotism impacting long term employees

    Pros

    the biggest fertilizer production company in America. High paying company in the area. Lots of opportunity for professional growth. The company will help employees expand their talent.

    Cons

    The people on shift work have a hared time balancing their personal and professional lives. The 8 hour shift is exhausting and grueling. Promotion opportunities are seldom.

    I have been working at Mosaic Company (Minnesota) as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Workers are very friendly and helpful, when they have time. If I ever ran into a dulldrum, I could always find more work around the office. PM mechanic was super fun to shadow and was able to see what it really takes to keep the plant running.

    Cons

    I had to keep on top of people to get anything done or get replies to emails, especially because I was a co-op.

    Pros

    Like the previous poster stated, there are some talented minds here especially in Enterprise and Security.

    Cons

    Some of the directors have no clue what is going on in their industry, too many Chiefs not enough Indians. This place reminds me of a incompetent Cuba with its arrogance, dictatorship and division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the directors to AOC more often instead of leading from a great distance. Recognize the hard-workers and not the slackers.
