    I have been working at Mercury Marine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exciting recreational product development. Team environment. Cross functional employment opportunities. Pretty good too down communication. Very good employee discounts on Brunswick Corporation products.

    Cons

    Sometimes product development cycle is too fast therefore it seems like products are developed too rapidly in which case quality is sacrificed.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in professional employee training and continuing education.

    Pros

    The wages are good benefits

    Cons

    Wished I lived closer but that is my choice

    Advice to Management

    Not all management but some need to listen to employees more often because some of them have good ideas at times not so much my experience but mainly from what I hear from other people managers I deal with I usually get positive responses from might be a good idea to occasionally have meetings with employees on the floor and encourage them to give good ideas and encourage them to keep thinking up good ideas myself I am on the floor also positive feedback goes a long ways to people even if their idea is not good say it in a positive way to not discourage them from voicing their opinion the next time about something because nobody ever always has the right ideas

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here simple great people and awesome benefits. I can't to forget to mention with the pay you can actually make a comfortable living.

    Cons

    The cons to working for this company are very few. Although there are cons this is still a wonderful place to work. Con number one is the union dues they take out your check on a monthly basis. Con number to is the humidity within the work place.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to uppermangent is too pickb the right person for certin areas within the work place.
