    Pros

    One of the best places to do a co-op. Awesome training with awesome projects leads to awesome all around experience.

    Cons

    The only con would be that you don't get out to see the manufacturing floor very much. Location is a con as well. Fond du Lac is kind of boring.

    I worked at Mercury Marine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for the area. Great co-workers. Very safety focused. Pay raises are decent, with alot of chances of overtime if you want it.

    Cons

    No chance of advancement. Management sucks, union sucks. Can force you to work within a days notice. So not much time for family if you don't want to work the weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more.

    I have been working at Mercury Marine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hiring process was easy and quick
    My boss is fantastic and has went to bat for me numerous times.

    Cons

    I work in the Materials Dept. and it's a very negative environment.
    I was hired as a "supplemental" employee and have found it difficult to become a fully represented employee.
    There is preferential treatment of some employees.
    If you want to get into the office, start by working in the office. Don't begin on the floor, it's next to impossible to get out.
    They don't practice what they preach.
