    I worked at Morton Salt full-time

    Pros

    Felt appreciated for my contribution.

    Cons

    Work environment is tough given the large temperature swings of the facility.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people who work and hold others who don't contribute more accountable. It's not about not being loyal, its about quality of life outside of work.

    Pros

    The only good this about working is the pay and the benefits that you get once your down with temp service

    Cons

    This company is a joke to work for. The management there does not care about the employees and what they have to say and will run you to the ground. As for the food grade plant at canveral is a joke there's nothing food grade about it. They store product in a temporary warehouse since it opened that's dirty and always have water in them that smell like mold and mildew and it just a joke. You have have to become a master mechanic to fix equipment. Morton moto is run it till it breaks and production is more important than anything.

    Advice to Management

    Things need to change surprised FDA hasn't showed up. Something needs to be done with management if your not working 3am to 3pm during the week you are nothing to this company and management

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

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent experience in industrial chemical production - had to become an expert in repairs because the facility would not outlay for needed capital improvements.

    Cons

    The job required 55-60 hours a week and fast paced shifts. The technical/scientific divisions were very under-staffed and as such, it was almost impossible to get ahead of the problems. Little chance for advancement (someone basically had to die or retire for promotions to become available... and when they were available, they did not promote from within)

    Advice to Management

    Spend on capital improvements.

    Pros

    Culture is changing for the good. Nice building to work at. There are some great managers to work for

    Cons

    Bad management to navigate through the changes. The culture is not the best, there is a lot of favoritism for promotions

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers to become servant leaders and be more attentive to employees

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and managers, good pay, and a great working environment. It was nice to experience working at a VPP certified site as well.

    Cons

    The only con was that the company closed the location.

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to make sure that the company's vision for success is being implemented by management below the CEO/Director levels down to the production employees. When your employees are valued, encouraged, and feel that they are listened to, they will perform at high levels. Understand that favoritism is really hurting the culture, and moral. From what I've heard from peers at other facilities, it has resulted in good employees leaving the company. That's not the way to reach your objectives.

    Pros

    Above average pay and people try to make a positive impact.

    Cons

    The positive impact people try to make in the company is met by resistance from managers who perform poorly. Corporate leaders out of touch. Unqualified and incompetent people in roles at plants because of relationships with corporate managers.

    Pros

    Nice office in Chicago. Good coffee. Friendly people. Short commute from the train. Overall it is a job and paycheck. Nothing more.

    Cons

    Supply chain is very broke. Customers don’t get what they order. Or it is late. No one can explain why but we are stuck dealing with it. Management doesn’t seem to know or care to fix it. Every day is spent dealing with problems and things that don’t work. Lots of favoritism. If your boss or VP likes you, then nothing will happen to you no matter how bad you screw up. You have no time to do your normal job. It is a sinking ship. If you like checking things off a list then it will drive you crazy because you will spin your wheels. If you can work 9-5 and just shut off outside those times, want to get mediocre pay, pay a lot for bad benefits, and want a company that is in horrible shape come and apply.
