      Slow down and makes a difference

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Many opportunities if you can get through the layers. Employees are hard working and dedicated to doing their jobs and willing to help others get through the chaos.

      Cons

      Executive management needs training on people management. All about the bottom line. Politics and bureaucracy are a barrier. Nothing is ever good enough.

      Change just to change is not good - slow down and make informed decisions

      Sep 7, 2008 -  in Bethlehem, PA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The People - co-workers are friendly and some have become like family. Location- Bethlehem location is close to my home. Benefits - Although benefits have been reduced they still offer a good package. The new CEO has cleaned house and closed or is selling business units that were not profitable - this was needed to insure our continued success

      Cons

      New CEO, Joe Muscari has proven that the phrase "people are our most valuable asset" is not longer applicable to MTI. Downsizing has been taken to a dangerous level in the Bethlehem location in some departments. Concern is growing that MTI cannot sustain business at this level. Burnout is sure to occur and a mass exit of good employees is taking the knowledge base to low levels in some departments. Oursourcing is also being considered which is killing what morale is left.

      Department Supervisor

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very good pay and benefits, very solid safety culture and solid commitment to excellence, always looking for ways to improve the business, technology is average but functional.

      Cons

      Leadership on the local, regional and corporate level is draconian and profit is king. Work life balance is non existent, the reporting requirements are very heavy and cumbersome. Human resources is a functional arm of management and only interested in keeping corporate out of legal trouble. HR has never been helpful to the rank and file. Employees fired more often than any other company I had worked for. Local managers are terminated on a whim and there is no consistency. Constant reorganizations. They say they have standards of behavior but they only apply to the local workforce. Good people leave and have left because of all the above.
