    I worked at M-B Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience

    Cons

    Management is not honest with employees. Success is shared by all but any failure is your fault. Poor planning for the future and most ignore current processes and plans

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people. Don't blame or punish the employees due to your poor planning

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at M-B Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are great to get along with a real family
    Good place to gain experience, but you will not last long

    Cons

    Management is far from professional, I was told this is a place "you can be fired for being right"
    The place is a revolving door, 70% turn over for Engineering and Manufacturing.
    You can be praised one minute and fired the next day.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to attract quality people you need to be quality in the way you treat them

    Pros

    Quitting time and payday are all that comes to mind.

    Cons

    Management is completely inept at running the company effectively. It's a running joke by all employees, including white collar. It's known as "The M-B way". But, if you can be part of the small town clique and not press for improvement, you'll fit in fine.

    Advice to Management

    Quit before the company is broken up and sold because new owners will definitely can the lot of you for stupidity and ineptitude .
