    I have been working at Morton Salt full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good people who actually mean well. Limited resources.

    Cons

    Break up 3 person group. Lots of invasion of privacy with cameras being used to watch the employees. Is that or not illegal?? One true toxic dude who talks about the people he is with the most. Says a lot be careful. Your gender or lifestyle should not be a topic of discussion or make a difference on their opinion of you as long as you do your work.

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to start off your career and and build experience by wearing a variety of different “hats”. You will learn tons of catchy business phrases and acronyms that are used in meetings that could have been an email.

    Cons

    You will receive very little training in the business processes or “best practices” required to complete you job duties. Upper Managment spends tons of their time in meetings and has little time to provide direction or communication to the departments they are in charge of. Frequency of layoffs due to cost cutting measures provided by Hackett: remaining employees are put in the position to train their senior managers and VP’s of Departments. But are given little information regarding the change management taking place throughout the organization. Evidently change management and C.O.E.’s are terms that translate to you better start looking for a new job.

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time

    Pros

    Most people are very friendly, gorgeous office space, generally flexible schedule, and some decent free snacks.

    Cons

    Managers are weak minded and lack basic leadership skills. Organization is constantly in state of analysis paralysis which slows ever thing down to a snail's pace. The irony is that the decisions that are made are done entirely too quickly and without the right / complete resources available to do the job. Leaders quiver at making a mistake, and will throw former employees under the bus to cover their own behind.

    "Toxic Work Environment"

    1.0
    Current Employee - Warehouse Worker in Cape Canaveral, FL

    I have been working at Morton Salt full-time

    Pros

    Pay and Paid Time Off are above average

    Cons

    Started 2020 with a positive and optimistic hope for a positive direction moving forward. Unfortunately, discriminatory work practices, harassment, and self induced divisiveness between employees and departments abounds and appears to be escalating. Situation almost appears to be by design but not sure how a positive outcome can be achieved under those conditions.

    Pros

    Upper mgmt is where you need to be. Attended a recent Safety Conf and let’s say the big boys know how to party. New Orleans and French Quarters lets say nothing wasn’t done.

    Cons

    Safety Credo is wait until after dark and they party hearty. They do know social media is rampant. No professionalism safety is not important having a good time is though. Loved it
