    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very casual environment between employee and supervisor, potential for hands-on field experience. Able to travel around the United States and Canada. Meal, Hotel and travel compensation.

    Cons

    More reactionary when it comes to planning, poor guidance from supervisors (typically learned how to proceed through more experienced people in the same position as me). Not a very inclusive work environment, difficulty working with some people.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at MacDon Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary and easy job... you can literally sit for hours and still get paid. Its like waiting for 8 hours to pass by. After 5 years, I feel like I'm living a meaningless life... but stil.. job is so easy even 10 year old can work here.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth.. need to drink or go fishing with bosses to get promoted. Job Hiring is subjective, not objective, I guess that's how companies promote people nowadays. Poor management, hired lots of people layed off the excess.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at MacDon Industries as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and an interesting place to work. The company is currently going through some major changes and adapting to modern and lean techniques. Since Mac Don is still at the bottom of their learning curve there are plenty of changes to keep things interesting. .

    Cons

    Some parts of the company are still hesitant or resistant to modern manufacturing methods. These people are hindering the progress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep changing. Keep updating.

    Pros

    Great benefits package fully funded by the employer. Some great people work there. The company shares profits with employees in the form of an xmas bonus.

    Cons

    A lot of dead weight is tolerated. Everyone gets the same raise and bonus regardless of their performance. There is no incentive or reward for being a top performer. Overtime is not fairly compensated. Morale has declined significantly over the years due to ineffective management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open about communicating with employees, and lead by example. Reward good work, and deal with poor performers in order to gain/hold the respect of your staff.
