    Good job but management is on a power trip and they fire people left and right.

    I worked at Mosaic Company (Minnesota) full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and good hours.

    Cons

    The managers of procurement (Julia, Candace, Robert) are on huge power trips. I worked for Mosaic for 7 months and I saw at least 10 people get fired for no reason. They try to intimidate you to make themselves feel important. Mosaic is a great company to work for but working in the procurement department you have to deal with the managers who will find a way to fire you. They don't care about you as a person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No room for advancement.

    Pros

    Great family environment, good benefits and compensation package, Senior Management have the right strategic outlook, large community impact and social responsibility.

    Cons

    Silo mentality, short-term approach with varying initiatives, limited diversity amongst management opportunities, middle management need to have a better understanding of the balance of both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation when trying to deliver on corporate strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen middle managements ability to drive corporate initiatives, strengthen the pay-per-performance system to include job specific SMART Goals across the board

    I worked at Mosaic Company (Minnesota) as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The other employees are very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
    There is a lot of emphasis on team work and cooperation.
    Compensation is quite good for an intern position.
    My work actually added value to the company; I was not simply performing menial and repetitive tasks like interns at many other companies.
    Employees are involved in philanthropy and community service throughout central Florida and the Tampa area

    Cons

    The only real con I can think of was that the HR department seemed to be lagging behind the rest of the company in terms of operational efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Much of Mosaic's workforce will be nearing retirement age in the next few years. As such, maintain the focus on developing young talent internally.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you lack drive, have no desire to progress your career and enjoy having incompetent Directors and Managers steal your work and present it as their own

    Cons

    Culture, Leadership or Lack of, ex: Director of ROIC already failed as a plant manger and was fired was brought back to be the change agent to drive improvement?! Definiton of insanity is what? People laugh at him behind his back and cannot stand him yet he strolls around like he owns the place. What a joke!! And there is at least two examples lioke that in every dept!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go ahead and step aside and let some new business minded people take control before you sink it.

    Ok company to work for

    Cons

    Hiring too many people at the top end and stripping the production areas down to make head count losing, the concept that we need to make production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company Management is forgetting about Production and trying to form to many non producing groups

    Pros

    Good work/family balance, fair compensation and good benefits. They value their people and invest in their training and development. They expect a lot, but its worth it.

    Cons

    Very slow moving, have to be patient for advancement. Things just don't change very quickly, at least in the administration side of the company, the production side may be different.

    I worked at Mosaic Company (Minnesota) full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, decent working conditions, good benefits,educational benefits,front line supervision knowledgeable, continous advancement available,retirement contibutions above average for most companys of equal size

    Cons

    Terrible senior management, so out of touch with the front line supervision and general workforce, its sadly comical. Example: VP in charge of Environmental, former job was Dow Chemical with no concept of safety or phosphate. Field Technicians workedin areas requiing 4 wheel drive trucks, dure to mud,water etc.. Senior Managment wanted to down size the vehicle fleet, suggested that they Technicians use their personal vehicles ( Kia ) really ?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place senior management inpositions that they are qualified for, the " good ole boy" is so 1970's, Large turnover on senior managment ( not fired-move to higherpay with new company's) every 2-5 years new VP's, total disruption to front line supervision. If its not broke, don't fix it
