    Pros

    Marmon Keystone has been around for a long time. Currently, yes going through some changes. Through these changes still able to give out raises. Offers solid benefits, vacations, sick days and will work with employees on flexible hours when needed.

    Cons

    As Marmon redefines who they are in the industry, some changes do need to be made.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate direction.

    I worked at Marmon/Keystone full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Upward mobility
    Opportunity to define your own path

    Cons

    Parent organization (Marmon Group) became heavily involved with company strategy in the last number of years and drastic reorganization followed. Facility closures, layoffs, talent exodus, etc.

    All of these things happen and are tough to deal with...that said, it's management's job to make tough decisions. So, while a lot of good people left both voluntarily and involuntarily, this is more a warning to any prospective employee using Glassdoor for company research. You should be aware that the reviews from March 21 and March 22 (2017) are more than likely "fake news" and were posted to offset some of the other, less than positive reviews. Their form and content are too similar.

    My review is not sour grapes and I'm not a disgruntled former employee. I do however use this site regularly for personal use and hope to maintain its integrity. Just do your homework and even reach out to someone on LinkedIn with experience there.
