    Pros

    I find the prior review of MHI to be inaccurate and even laughable. Yes, the facility itself isn't plush and yes, it is secure... but we do ship repair for the US Navy so security is necessary. The nature of government contracts is that there will be an ebb and flow in the amount of work we have available. As such, there will be layoffs when there is not enough work to justify keeping additional employees employed. This is the case with any other company whose primary source of income is through government contracts. I did not find management to be very well educated and qualified. They were personable and made every effort to mentor the employees. I also found the wages and reviews to be fair. Good performers are definitely rewarded for their efforts. One major bonus to working for MHI is that it is an ESOP. As such, every employee is automatically awarded stock options with the company with no cost to the employee. It is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    When workload is slow, full time hours may not be available for trade workers.

    Pros

    Only accept a job with this company as a temporary position. Pink slips are handed out on a daily basis.

    Cons

    To many chiefs not enough indians. Too many indians that think they are chiefs..Constant threat of job loss. Each day may be your last. Excellent work performance is rewarded with poor employment reviews. Raises and promotions are unheard of. Building looks like Alcatraz, guard shack, scan badges, consentena wire, weekly drug screens, constant surveillance. Not a comfortable work evironment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like cattle!!!

    Pros

    Decent pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Not a very informative company. Very private with info. Don't share ideas and other info well. Left to fend for self.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to first go through a basic training of the company to better inform your future employees. i.e. What and why do we do what we do? What does such and such mean? etc...
