    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, family-oriented, great supervisor, flexible hours

    Cons

    Low wages/salary. Relies on mission of company to keep employees happy, versus tangible benefits
    Position was misclassified as non-exempt
    Lack of opportunity. It took 4 years to get a promotion that amounted to a 2% pay increase
    No separate sick leave, it's included in earned leave
    I left employer on excellent terms, but HR will not allow my supervisor to be a reference for me.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    great colleagues, compensation average to above average

    Cons

    senior management and most directors living in the past glory days of the company. have neither the vision nor the courage to take important and needed steps. they are unwilling (unable?) to let go of day to day decisions, so are ignoring their own responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees as thought they have something to offer.

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

    Pros

    Managers that care. Great coworkers. Quality products. They take care of their employees and pay pretty well. Benefits are good as well.

    Cons

    OCP is a publishing company and recently had to lay off their print shop staff and sell the presses. they are currently outsourcing most of their printing work to save a lot on shipping and labor. Quality company in a dying market.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the times and sell the products that will make money and keep you afloat. A digital product and sales model is the key to the future.

    Pros

    In a word, the people. Musicians, printers, artists, writers, accountants, journalists, programmers, you name it, all working together in a unique environment. Most are there because they want to contribute something to the Church or work in nonprofits. Personal growth is valued, and there's a concerted effort by General Management to embrace change and include staff whenever possible. A plus? The building itself sits right next to Normandale Park, is near many great restaurants, and is centrally located to many parts of the metro area.

    Cons

    The culture can be intimidating. Information is passed on on a "need to know" basis which can give the appearance of secrecy. Trust is hard to earn and not easily given between departments or management and staff (both directions). Opportunities for professional growth have been hard to come by in recent years.

    Pros

    Mission, family values.
    Sense of purpose and importance to the work.

    Cons

    The workload tends to be heavy.

    Advice to Management

    The gap between staff and Sr. Management is much wider than you realize. You are doing too much "telling" and not enough "listening." Let the staff and internal leaders tell you how to get things done.

    Pros

    L´office chérifien de phosphte offre l´opportunité de se développer et de s´instruire, sachant qu´il a plusieurs conventions avec plusieurs pays, c´est une occasion d´apprendre et d´avoir un échange culturel.
    Les travaux réalisés pendant chaque jounée sont négociés pendant la réunion du matin,les personnes du services sont sympa actifs et serviable

    Cons

    Le seul inconvénient, l´usine ne respecte pas totalement les normes de sécurité
