not a fair place to work
Manufacturing (Current Employee) –  Shrewsbury, MASeptember 6, 2017
Get your money when you walk in the door because it's 1-2% raises from there on out. The place has no air conditioning AND no windows. Too many nepotism hires.

I love my job, just don't like how management has favorite people with special privilege's. I call it the good old boy plan. They let good old boys work overtime when they really don't have any work.
Pros
free turkey at Thanksgiving
Cons
lots of favoritism and discrimination

Operator (Former Employee) –  Morenci, AZDecember 12, 2016
A day at the job consists of building and operating crushers and ball mills. I learned how a crusher was built, then got the opportunity to operate it as well. Again if you apply yourself you can move up in the company. You get the opportunity to travel, and receive great benefits.

Structural Designer/Lead Structural 3D Modeler (Former Employee) –  Canonsburg, PAOctober 18, 2016
With all the different bulk material machines that metso can provide and all of the customer requirements, created a very challenging environment. Every job pushed you to think outside of the box. It is just a shame they are closing the Canonsburg office.
Pros
Challenging Work
Cons
Management stuck doing the processes for 30 years.

Customer Service / Aftermarket Services (Former Employee) –  York, PAAugust 17, 2016
Employees are properly focused on meeting the Customers needs. Management is overly focused on the welfare of the Corporation and the Stockholders. Too many unproductive midlevel managers in comparison to the number of employees doing the actual research, engineering, and sales work required to fulfill the current market demands.

Some of the processes are dysfunctional

Work Place Culture of Bullying
Management (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAAugust 12, 2013
The company does not value employees. Leadership is allowed to bully employees without repercussions. Company values mean nothing they are just put in place because that is what a business is supposed to do.
Pay is good, benefits are good, performance is not recognized. If you are looking for a pay check and benefits only, you are in the right place. If you are looking for a career, work life balance and recognition for a job well done.....run!
Pros
Total Rewards
