    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).

    We appreciate the input on all the areas mentioned above. We need to do better communicating how our programs link, as there are defined strategies that incorporate the programs we've selected. It's... More

    I have been working at Rochester Midland full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very competitive salaries
    Overall good people throughout the organization
    Work/home balance is very fair
    Bottom line comes first

    Cons

    Very little organized training
    Set in their ways, not willing to think outside the box
    Bottom line comes first, not the family first mantra it tries to portray

    Advice to Management

    For a family first business, the bottom line seems to be awfully important in some of the not so family first decisions...obviously that's good for business, but not so much for some families.
