    I worked at MPI (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are outstanding to work with. If you like change, there's plenty for you there. The original management team was great to work with.

    Cons

    Company was purchased 4 times in 7 years by different equity firms. Each time wanting more and more out of every division. Two divisions closed during that time. Much of management is nearing retirement age with very little succession plans in place.Major turnover at corporate level in last 3 years, many 20 to 30 year people left.

    Advice to Management

    Back up management quickly in hopes of saving this division.

    Pros

    Don't work every weekend, co workers get along for the most part. Job is close to home and we are now UNION. USW all the way!!!!!

    Cons

    Working conditions are bad management is horrible HR is rude and there for the money they always screw up paycheck a insurance well just about everything they do. Upper management doesn't care for the people just about the money they say they are putting money into the plant and they are just putting in cameras and gates this place is in need of real management and office workers it's not even paying enough to pay our bills even with overtime!

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what your job is and do it right! Give us the right pay better insurance and respect!

    Pros

    You get ISO-610A certified.

    Cons

    Management issues. Owner and his daughter are cheap-skates, except for giving money to the church; Craig's ministry. They don't hire when promised. Paranoia is the norm, rather than the exception. Church breaks during work hours, but don't be a minute late arriving, regardless of any circumstance above and beyond one's control. One starts there by reinventing the wheel over and over again. Stupid mistakes by coworkers, costing many thousands (my entire year's salary), could have been easily avoided; but nothing is done to rectify so that it doesn't happen again. I quit and my only regret was not being part of the "breakfast club" any longer.

    Advice to Management

    Hire as promised. Bring salary to a level above that of poverty. Lose the paranoia.

    I have been working at MPI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job, but could be allot better. It's local and pay most of my bills but is still lacking allot.

    Cons

    MPI Knox, is a dirty noisy, place that is not very well maintained, and it seems that most of the management do no want to take a active roll in making sure things are done correctly. Most of the new employees that the company get are driven off by the fact of low pay, and poor working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus efforts on pay and taking care of employees better, also working to improve factory environment and professionalism in factory. There is far to much favoritism and not enough work moral.

    Pros

    Work life balance is truly a key for this organization. They offer 4x10s and generous benefits. Employees are celebrated and gain rewards for their work.

    Cons

    Departments are not working together (working in silos). Pay is uneven among staff - some are paid hourly and some on salary.
