CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Oswego, NY – January 20, 2016
A typical day at work was taking care of residents changing their depends doing every 2 hour rounds which means checking to see if they needed to be changed or taking them to the bathroom. We also had to feed them if they required it. I learned that not every person has the same daily routine that some people like things done in the morning while others like them done before bed. The management wasn't the greatest because they only sit in an office and do their work they don't make sure everything out on the floors are going the way that they should. The co-workers are amazing to work with, they are always right there if you need help. \the hardest part of this job was trying to figure out what a person wants or needs if they have a communication problem like being deaf or if they cant point. I love being able to say that I helped a person be who they are and I also loved neing able to help families in need
Client Solutions Consultant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 22, 2015
Morningstar is an exciting place to be for young graduates as it provides a young, energetic culture where ideas can thrive. The team atmosphere and overall company atmosphere is very open as I know I can go to anyone with questions, concerns, or conversations. You aren't limited to your role within the company as you can take on other projects for various teams to explore other areas of the company outside of your department. It's a great place to learn and grow alongside the company.

Overall, Mornigstar is a great company to work for. The company ofers flexible work hours and allows you to work from home on occasion. The work/life balance is great, but job advancement is difficult.

Morningstar has a great atmosphere, as well as incredibly hard working, nice people. I wholeheartedly believe the company strives to accomplish their six ideals: Investors First, Great Products, Great People, Uncompromising Ethics, Entrepreneurial Spirit, Financial Success.
A typical day at work generally is non stop fast pace but relaxed atmosphere. I learned how to install wires and other electrical equipment as well as electrical codes. Management is not the best but always around for help when needed. All co workers are one man teams that are good at whatever the job detail entails. A very diverse group. The hardest part of the job is trenching by far.The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things everyday and applying it.

Morningstar: Rude, overworked, and undepaid situation
unusual situation (Former Employee) – Chicago,IL – June 27, 2013
If you are an experienced, qualified, and educated professional do not go there. They base their workforce on inexperienced college graduates who grow with a low salary and expectations. They give perks which people cannot use because of tons of work and no resources. Therefore people mostly forced to skip their time off plus work overtime because of the understaffed situation. Other unpleasant nuances are: no privacy, people clustered in teams at the plain tables; open floor plan (there are no even cubicles) causes a lot of sick people been in a flu season.

Line Monitor (Current Employee) – Sulphur Springs, TX – May 27, 2013
I go into work and have a shift meeting. I find out what is going on in the plant. I check for quality samples and bring them into the lab for the lab techs to test them to make sure we are running good product.
