    I worked at The Morey Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company provides enough structure to promote collaboration and a professional environment while extending flexibility when needed. I got to decide when my day started. I got 10 days of annual vacation time and was granted personal days off when needed. Working from home was an option. There's an on-site gym provided at no extra cost. The insurance and 6% matching of 401K benefits were very good. Further, I can't remember a time when my work wasn't appreciated, over and over again, I was personally thanked and received compensation for my contributions. Women are paid just as much as men in the same position. Also, the location is awesome, right off of the expressway next to upscale shopping and restaurants.

    Cons

    This is a 30 year old manufacturing company with some highly customized systems that have been around just as long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First of all, the recent focus and gains in sales is fantastic! The notion that sales drives a company should continue to be reverberated around the company. Second, a stand-up customer service initiative that keeps quality accountable could be a real differentiator in the mid-size manufacturing space. Finally, I've always been a fan of peer review systems.

    I worked at The Morey Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is fair with compensation for interns and very understanding of employee situations. The atmosphere is nice and friendly and it has a nice working atmosphere. They ability to work a little extra, without doing overtime, to finish your work if you are behind was also a plus.

    Cons

    The company has a funny clock in system that works on 15 min intervals meaning if you clock in at 8:01 then the system will show you clocking in at 8:15. There was the same issue when clocking out if you clocked out at 5:28 then the system will show you clocked out at 5:15.

    Pros

    OK Pay, flexible hours, decent benefits

    Cons

    Horrible management. Restructuring has left many in engineering without direction. Also does not have a good established process for product development. Begins manufacturing products that have not been adequately tested and validated, causing many unhappy customers and failed unit returns. Unrealistic expectations for deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head together and listen to what few engineers you have left before the ship sinks.

    I have been working at The Morey Corporation

    Pros

    It used to be a good place to work many many years ago.

    Cons

    Always threats of firing. Management has an attitude of "this is the only place you'll find a job". Very stressful environment. Overwork with no appreciation. People with good talents are leaving and replaced by managements "friends" or relatives, who lack the abilities for the positions they are put into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect and recognize your employees talents.

    Pros

    A nice new addition was made to the already existing building, which was nice to start with. Good computer support.

    Cons

    The overall company culture is stressed and unorganized; poor senior management decisions have caused turmoil for middle managers and hourly workers; companywide low saleries and pay cuts have killed morale; Generally a political nightmare
