    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.

    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

    Pros

    Laid back culture, good work-life balance, down to earth executives, small company feel.

    Cons

    Hourly have negative view of engineers, people that should be let go are kept around, and there's some brown-nosers here and there that are somehow still promoted even though they don't do a good job.

    A company with good intentions

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Plymouth, MN
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Plymouth, MN

    I worked at Mosaic Company (Minnesota) full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the CEO cares about the employees. The company is looking like they are on the upswing, so there is optimism and feeling of job security there.

    Cons

    Because the company used to be owned by Cargill, they had the luxuries of their systems and experience. Once separated, Mosaic was like a child who just got their training wheels taken off, shaky. There are many inefficiencies and kinks to work out. The HR department is lagging, IT is trying new systems. The lack of efficiencies/structure is also an opportunity for certain people. The company is conservative and not as adapted to the new millennials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is an energy at Mosaic that everyone needs to be busy. Remember that busy does not necessarily mean productive or that it is contributing to the overall strategic goal. It would also be good to recruit younger professionals/interns to the company, the workforce is starting to age and people in their early/mid 30s are the babies of the corporate headquarters.

    Pros

    -As a co-op, I have had responsibilities for several projects a typical full-time engineer would have.
    -Very positive and motivated employees
    -Room for growth

    Cons

    -Limited locations (very little internationally)
    -Some work locations are in fairly remote areas
    -Some departments don't work as well together as others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in the co-op program while focusing on good communication between co-op leaders and employees. Continue hiring employees that are motivated and positive about the company.

    I worked at Mosaic Company (Minnesota)

    Pros

    Small, able to advance
    Easy access to upper management
    Able to work at multiple sites without moving
    Could easily be a lifelong employer

    Cons

    Phosphate is not a famous industry - harder to transfer skills b/c many are unfamiliar w/ the industry
    Not many other places within central FL for ChemE's to work... if you don't like it, you'll need to move
    Production isn't for everyone, yet it's seen as a badge of honor & hard to advance without it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire college grads... those that are holding on now WILL retire eventually
    Offer more training to employees, such as CEM
