    I have been working at Magnetic Inspection Laboratory full-time for more than a year

    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!

    I have been working at Magnetic Inspection Laboratory full-time for less than a year

    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.

    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.
