    I worked at The Mosaic Company as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hands on experience in a plant and in a mine

    Cons

    A lot of the hourly employees are rude to new employees and salaried employees

    Advice to Management

    Devote more resources to developing young engineers. There is often very little guidance when it comes to training opportunities to be able to better oneself.

    "Mediocre company with "Good 'Ol Boy" mentality"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits with a strong sense of community in the workplace, large corporation with a medium size company feel.

    Cons

    Short-term thinking, weak middle management, pay for performance formula is easily manipulated, functional silos, many of the issues are typical of a large corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Promote because of ability to perform at the next level, not because of performance at current level. Peter's Principle is alive and well.

    Pros

    Co-Op employees start at $18 hourly and get a dollar raise for each returning term. The work isn't very challenging. It's a great introduction to plant operations and basic equipment.

    Cons

    Full time employees may be forced to change job locations and titles overnight. You can be put on shift work without agreeing to that. They laid off hundreds of people in 2016.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your Co-Ops like engineers, not secretaries.

    Cons

    Makes poor decisions when promoting sometimes. People's experience often times is not taken into consideration. Promoting people to positions they are not qualified for.
