    I have been working at Murphy-Brown (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits . Good starting point if you have an agricultural degree or looking to obtain CDL while getting paid for it. Does reimburse for some college coursework.

    Cons

    Only real way to advance at this employer is if you know someone or you came from one of their prefered colleges.(VA Tech and NC State). You will basically live at work unless you are a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to reward the employees that are the actual ones meeting production goals. The managers get all the glory while most of the lower level incentives have been stripped

    Pros

    Decent pay, great co-workers, helpful management, lots of holidays off, company parties, awesome benefits to employees, and all around great place to work.

    Cons

    If you work in the barns you do not get paid overtime. They only pay you straight time. However, office personnel get paid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying the farm working people overtime as they are working long hours and spending time away from their families.

    I worked at Murphy-Brown full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits and good pay for the area. General manager of the company Michael Rainwater makes you feel appreciated , no one below him however does

    Cons

    I honestly wish I could put less stars. This place is a joke, the upper management let's farm leaders get away with whatever the want. Then the complex managers come in once ever week or two with a piece of paper and write down every bad thing that they van about you and never tell you that you are doing anything correctly. SOP'S change weekly and you never know what you are supposed to do because you have an manager who is gone every other week for a week at a time. NO EMPLOYEES AT MBMO FEEL LIKE THEY ARE APPRECIATED. Michael Rainwater who is the general manager of the company is the ONLY person who chose to make his employees feel appreciated, but we see him maybe four times a year, you need to be reminded a little more often than that. At one point I was actually told "your replaceable.. Workers like you are a dime a dozen"

    Advice to Management

    Act like u care about your laborers, remember without them your cushy job is no more, they are the ones who make this company happen...without them there are no hogs and you nice office chairs are gone!

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

    Pros

    The best things about working for Murphy Brown was getting a paycheck. Since I've been gone I've heard that their employees are actually making quarterly bonuses now. However, while I was there we never made bonus once despite weaning the most pigs out of every farm in the state.
    The only other good thing about working there was the annual Christmas party for employees and their families.

    Cons

    We worked tons of extra hours because it was such a terrible place to work that the turnover rate was outrageous.

    Advice to Management

    Lower management has no control over how things are handled and gets stepped on by upper management. Give them a little of the control back-they're the ones that are listening to their employees every day and working with them.
    Also, it would be nice if you didn't change the operating procedures every other week.
