I worked at Motion Control Engineering full-time (More than 5 years)
A lot of the employees are good people who care about others and their work. I really have to say there are some great people that work in this place who are in the sales, engineering and R&D departments.
You will get terrible raises and at the unofficial policy is to give reviews every 15 months so they can stretch out paying you less. Salary employees have to clock in and out. If you work less than 42.5 hours a week (half hour lunches) on the clock your pay will be docked. If you work at home to make up for it your pay will still be docked because they don't allow working from home. If you work over 42.5 hours one week and less the next, your pay will still be docked. Production is being moved to Mexico so over the last 7 years a lot of long term factory workers have been laid off resulting in a loss of product knowledge. Working at MCE will make you feel like you always need to watch your back because any wrong step will be dealt with swiftly, and firmly. There is a lot of turn over in engineering as new college grads will work for a year and then move on once the promise of a bright future and a good raise doesn't come true. Unfortunately upper management is mostly made up of people who are not MBA's and don't know how to manage people and don't have children so they don't seem to understand a family and work balance. If you do decide to work at MCE, make sure you are always in some way tied to the product shipping out the door. I have seen several times a person moved to a special project and then laid off if the project didn't work out. When given the special project, you will have unclear goals, no mentoring or support from management to help with the project and you will not be allocated any resources. You will feel like you are being set up to fail. Overall the employees at the company are not very happy working there but are constantly being told by upper management that leaving is giving in and that MCE is the best place to work. The longer you stay there the more you will believe it's true.
Advice to Management
Please treat the employees like professionals. Road map a growth plan for the employees. Provide annual raises that are on par with the industry.
