    Pros

    Although I've only been with this company for a short time, it's clear that MIL is here to stay and grow. The industry we are in demands superior quality and everything that goes on within the plant supports that initiative. Everyone is easy to get along with and there's a great camaraderie and team atmosphere. Production is really high and this requires long days for some but I would rather have really high production and long days with OT than short days or lay offs.

    Cons

    The only cons have pros at their core. Example - con: It takes a long time to get projects going because every facet of the project is scrutinized for value. This level of scrutinizing and oversight is a pro. Why would you want to work with a company that frivolously threw money and time at everything without thoroughly qualifying it.

    Great Company - Great People - Great Industry

    Pros

    Company is busy - lots of work to go around which means they are focused on growing. Huge emphasis placed on training and role integration Interesting industry that makes you feel proud to play a part in. Management is hugely knowledgeable and is more than willing to share/teach/coach without being over whelming or making you feel dumb. Relaxed work environment that encourages ideas and creative thinking. Work hard play hard mentality

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to go around which can lead to people getting stressed out - can lead to some uncomfortable situations with coworkers but no one means disrespect. There is a large amount of temp workers in the warehouse which can lead to difficulties in communication and trust. The production employees that put in the effort and want to contribute are huge assets! 30 min lunch is enough time to eat, but not enough time to decompress from any stress from the day.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons include that the work we do here is incredibly meaningful. I also love that it seems they really care about their employees. I have had countless occasion where i received meaningful feedback on what to improve on and what I was doing right already. The benefits and comp. are great but what I also really appreciate is how quickly the day flies by. You won't go wrong working for this company.

    Cons

    The hours are kinda long, but they make up for it with OT!

    Pros

    MIL is a great place to work if you are looking for somewhere to grow and be challenged. I have always found myself bored with jobs but this place keeps you busy and is a place where you can learn about some very cool industries. This isn't a place for slackers, but if you come into work and work hard it is an amazing environment, They offer dynamic hands on training and great benefits. I would say the best part is managements desire for you to grow. This company is growing at an exponential rate right now. Management recognizes this and allows you to think outside of your day to day, allowing you to make a real impact in that growth. On a side note you also get your own parking spot which I think is pretty cool!

    Cons

    A lot can be put on your desk at times but that makes the day go by fast. As mentioned above this isn't a place for people who do not want to work, or just get by doing the minimum everyday. A smaller concern is that there is only 30 minute lunches, coming from a place where you get an hour this can be a bit of a bummer.

    Pros

    Magnetic Inspection Laboratory, Inc. is an ever-evolving workplace. Employees are encouraged to think outside the box and bring their ideas/suggestions forward to promote positive growth for both the company and personnel. The sky is the limit. There are some extremely knowledgeable individuals working here, as well as many who are cross-trained in multiple fields. That being said, there is always someone willing to lend a helping hand or answer questions. MIL offers a fantastic benefits package that includes medical, dental, vision, 401k and many more voluntary benefits. The salary/wages are competitive.

    Cons

    The workload can be heavy at times, but proper teamwork and time management help fuel each department’s success.

    Hard Working Employees and Potential Growth at MIL

    Pros

    There are boundless opportunities for growth at MIL. They are very flexible and support/encourage their employees to explore other areas of interest outside your day-to-day role. They have an excellent benefits package and the pay is competitive. A lot of new positive changes and upgrades being made internally to help shape and grow the company. Very hard-working and dedicated employees.

    Cons

    The hours are very long and stressful. Sometimes management can be somewhat very demanding and unappreciative of the employees and quite unapproachable. Work life balance is very poor. Management are open to new ideas, but often times, projects are put on backburner due to micromanagement style.
