    I worked at Marsh Bellofram full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a half step up from the unemployment line.

    Cons

    Low pay, no regard for employee safety. Roof was LITERALLY falling in throughout the facility.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for...

    I worked at Marsh Bellofram full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed most of the people I worked with. Friendly and helpful.
    The company will always be buying another company to bring in, so there is some job security.

    Cons

    The company does not promote from within. The longer you are there, the less respect you receive.
    Marsh Bellofram is a "Group of Companies" They run the divisions into the ground until there is little profit left to pull out of them, then they go buy something else.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better, nurture them instead of treating them like disposable pawns.
    Reinvest in the divisions you already have.

    Pros

    After so long, a lot of the individuals begin to feel like family. Time off is plentiful which is great for those with families, and the hours of operation are on par with most comparable organizations.

    Cons

    Management is bismal. Knowledge rests at the lower levels and an unwillingness to hear or gain advice or ideas from lower level employees is killing the organization. Promotions going to individuals with no experience and a lack of understanding is frustrating. Turnover is extremely high due to disappointment and frustration. No employee feels appreciated and it's not a fun place to work. Supervisors often know more than their counterparts and do much of their jobs with a fraction of their pay creating a huge disparity in pay. There is no middle class..its 20,000 a year or 65 a year. What used to be a great place to work, has turned into a lousy workplace. Individuals in supervisory, administrative and clerical positions need to be paid and respected more. The heart of the company lies within these people, and without a union to protect them and no management to respect them, it's getting worse by the day.

    Advice to Management

    Value the individuals you currently have employed. Promote from within to strengthen the organization and build loyalty. With absolutely no loyalty and no satisfaction, key employees are not caring anymore about the future of the company. Value your experience, take chances within and maybe you'll get results.

    Pros

    There isn't much else to choose from in the area except a casino and a manufacturer of fine china. Marsh is perhaps the largest of very few companies in the area which require talent in both the electrical and mechanical engineering fields.

    Cons

    Sub-standard compensation and benefits packages for Manufacturing, Engineering, Sales and Support Staff. No other perks can realistically offset the negative impact of a non-competitive wage and benefit package. The standard reason given is sub-standard economic condition of the region. My question is, "How can the economics ever improve unless wages and benefits are increased, thus creating an incentive for economic growth?

    Advice to Management

    My feedback would be to sacrifice that second or third house or car and invest in your talent base. Competitive wages and benefits keep existing talent and draw new talent to the company, thus increasing the regions economic health.
