    Pros

    Benefits, pay, freedom, esop, 401K, health benefits, strong account package, decent intelligent managers and great coworkers.

    Cons

    There's always room for improvement. Selling automation equipment is extremely competitive and many view us as job eliminators.

    Advice to Management

    Misty keep doing what you're doing. Consider studying successful companies, then replace the annual review process with something more 21st century.

    I have been working at McNaughton-McKay full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment is pretty laid back
    Strong company morals, company is well-respected in the industry
    Transparency into company performance
    Easy opportunity for continuing education
    Solid retirement
    Strong executive management
    Generally speaking, management is very easy to talk to, even executives
    Not a public company, so firing people simply to make numbers doesn't happen here

    Cons

    Raises and bonuses are very rare/low for non-sales people or mgt, not even meeting cost of living usually. Need to get your desired salary upfront
    Hard work is rarely rewarded any more than coasting
    Advancement opportunities are lacking because of low turnover
    Being able to see sales numbers is a double-edged sword when raises and bonuses are lower than they should be

    Advice to Management

    For those not anywhere close to retirement age, all the talk about ESOP is not nearly as important as making ends meet today. Many would trade lowered ESOP stock prices for healthier bonuses and salary increases that outpace the cost of living. The company may be doing very well now, but the "little people" are struggling. This should not be the case in a truly "employee owned" company.

    Pros

    Well established company that has a good overall package for employees. Continued education program, uninsured health care spending, ESOP program.

    Cons

    Hard to move across departments, communication needs to improve overall, branches need to work more like one company instead of individual branches.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with employees more and review and critque managers more and make changes when possible. Continue to look at ways to grow the business.

    Pros

    If you do a half ass job and keep your head down, it's a fine place to collect a paycheck twice a month.

    Cons

    Myself and the other sales people were all lied to about the compensation. During the "good times" the GM kept us all on salary while he lined his pockets. As soon as the market turned, we were thrown on straight commission so he could continue to line is pockets. He hired a Sales Manager and raised our goals telling us he would bring $50k/mo to each branch. My customers banned him from their plants because he is so useless and just upsets them. He is almost as good at playing on his computer as his boss Doug Cooper. All management are good drinking buddies, that's why they are kept around.

    Advice to Management

    If you stopped talking and listened to your employees and cared for them you wouldn't be quite so horrible. And they would make you look good by doing a good job for you

    Pros

    Free Coffee, some smiling faces, Good Friday off

    Cons

    I transferred to MCMC as an inside sales person going into outside sales. I was told I would be making great money selling Allen-Bradley as an Account Manager. In fact, I made less. This is a theme of the poor mgt. in Charleston, they make promises and when you ask for them to make it happen(more money in exchange for hard work) they let you go and higher someone else on the same notion that they will make a ton of money. The only business I have seen with turnover of this magmitude is car sales. Unfortunately the GM is best friends with his boss so his poor performance is overlooked and rewarded. The GM is obviously paid on keeping expenses down, otherwise he would want his sales people to be happy and make everyone alot of money, and not screw them at every turn. Its tough times out there, if you need a paycheck put in an application, just know you will be working for the worst management in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better than how you want to be treated
