    I worked at Montaplast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good designs, great equipment, modern facility, tons of new products..

    Excess turnover! Cannot keep production personnel. New product introductions are hasty!

    Start acting more "American" and less German!

    I have been working at Montaplast full-time

    Pros

    Easy money. Most use a a transitional job until they find something better.

    Cons

    The company seems unfocused on their goals and commit only half way on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be armchair managers and get out on the floor more.

    I worked at Montaplast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very few and struggle to come up with good things to say. Good people work there, with few bright spots in upper management. Decent insurance. Operators make decent money.

    Cons

    Company does not pay out remaining vacation time even though you worked for that time and you left on good terms. Very overtime heavy work/family balance is not a concern there. Equipment in bad shape and techs are expected to fix stuff with minimal resources.

    Advice to Management

    Review your shift plant managers, teach them how to communicate and show mutual respect, and above all listen to your work force.

    Pros

    Decent pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    This was without a doubt the worst company I have every worked for. Management was constantly disrespectful to me and my fellow employees. It was disrespect on a level that I had never before encountered, so when I left I did a big happy dance. The high turn-over rate is legendary in the area. If you can avoid working there please do so. Take a little more time to find another company, any other company to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from my 4 year old on how to treat people.

    I worked at Montaplast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management somewhat cares about people and values loyalty. Job security was "ok" and you did not have to feel like you'll be asked to leave unless you did a major screw-up.

    Cons

    Virtually imposible to advance or grow. Owned and run in a very traditional German way. No bonus or holiday shut down. Mediocre health care benefits and vacation time.

    Lots of projects to improve

    Cons

    Culture is very backwards and hard to change

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to change.
