TOXIC and a nightmare, culture will cause HEALTH concerns.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) –  DeWitt, IAMarch 3, 2019
The work environment and culture will cause you health problems! Very TOXIC! Very poor upper management replacing seasoned leaders with college graduates that got their experience from how to manage from the book for dummies from Barnes and Noble. Accountability is pushed down to lower level managers and supervisors turnover is over 100% they literally turned over a whole workforce in 1 year. It’s a revolving door. I have hired and seen 3 supervisors that only worked for less than a month in the last 6 months due to the culture. MBM is a laughing stock among the hourly and don’t buy into any of it the Koch culture turned a decent company into a nightmare a place where you fear to loose your job or livelihood. If you value your health and peace of mind don’t even bother to read their job ad.

Amazing process and technology. Management needs work. Not always focused on whats best for the line workers. Extremely hot environment. Need to find a way to cool it down.

Shift Manager (Former Employee) –  Geneva, NYJuly 6, 2017
Work Place culture has been challenging lately with new management regime. Through our struggles, the only way to solve the problem was to graph it. Production teams have struggled with manpower to support the different lines and have made escalations to management with no progress being made. The company does offer good benefits and 401K matching.
Pros
Benefits, room for growth
Cons
Schedule, work load, manpower struggles
