    I have been working at Rochester Midland full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The folks I work with are very nice people to work with. The atmosphere is professional and there is air about my work environment that makes it pleasant to come to work each day. There is also a high amount of empathy for the employees. I have seen many improvements over the years and I am glad I have chosen to keep working at Rochester Midland.

    Cons

    As with any company there is room for improvement, however, any perceived cons of working for Rochester Midland often outweigh the pros. In my opinion the company has attributes that shift in the positive direction. Those with a positive attitude learn to work through the challenges. The company does its best to make improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make improvements to processes and continue to keep us competitive and efficient.

    I have been working at Rochester Midland full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    RMC is a great place to work. They promote from within. I have received three promotions in the 13 years I've worked here. I feel as though good performance is appreciated and rewarded here. The benefits are good including salary, personal time, vacation time (that was recently increased), Health Care and a Wellness Program that is truly outstanding! The Senior Management team is made up of a group of dedicated, intelligent people making good ethical as well as business decisions. There is good communication between Senior Management and the rest of the company via a quarterly newsletter, an anonymous 'Ask Management' forum on the intranet and periodic global meetings. There is a formal required Annual Performance Appraisal process as well as a 90 day Leader Manager Review that allows for open dialog between an employee and their supervisor which I think is very important. The company is big enough to offer opportunities to all, yet small enough that at Corporate at least, you feel as though you know most of your coworkers. I feel as though my fellow employees are my second family.

    Cons

    The profit sharing although annual, has not been substantial.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay in touch with the employee population by having state of the company meetings and updates. It's important that we all feel we are part of the big picture.

    Pros

    I believe that most senior leaders have a true interest in the development of employees and appreciate the value that employees bring to the Company. The employees, for the most part, are exceptional to work with.

    Cons

    While implemented with the best of intentions, there are too many new "programs of the day". Pick ONE and follow it through to the end so that leadership credibility is not being questioned by so many. Also, there are a few people who don't believe that a company's success is dependent on employees working as a team. They are too self-focused. Either help them understand the importance of team work, and make them accountable, or weed them out.

    Advice to Management

    See above regarding program of the day.
    401(k) match - thanks for having one, but it's time to step it up.
    Think about ways to keep employees engaged that won't cost money (work life balance options would be a good place to start).

    I worked at Rochester Midland (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the folks at RMC are nice and many of which I worked directly with are talented.

    Cons

    Lack of brand awareness in some markets limits the company's opportunity for growth.
    They think global, but lack the focus on penetrating the close-go-home markets (US). Lots of US markets where there is no coverage.
    On the sales side of the business, there are a couple managers in the company discouraging good employees, resulting in turnover. That needs to stop.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on personnel; offer competitive comp program to attract the right talent, reward performance, and invest in markets where there's no coverage. Identify root cause of why good people are leaving and build an action plan to correct this.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Rochester Midland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family run business. Owners genuinely care about the personal lives of the employees.

    Cons

    Pay is below industry average. Commission percentages have been taken down to the point where there is little financial reward for growing territory. I have doubled my sales in two years and annual income has remained the same because of commission erosion.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the commission structure for the sales team. Lower minimum purchase requirements, be more competitive on product cost. Benefits and 401K are below industry standards.
