Looking forward to many more years
Support staff (Current Employee) – Alabama – October 1, 2018
I hadn't heard of Magnolia River before I interviewed here last year but I am so glad I took a chance. Everyone that works in the administrative offices (admin, HR, finance, engineering, GIS) is here because they want to be here and enjoy the family type atmosphere. And "family" is not some corporate ideal that they don't live up to - they preach it AND they live it. It's nice to be somewhere that actually takes work/life balance seriously and realizes that their employees have lives and families outside the office that need attention from time to time. They don't treat you like a number here. The management takes pains to learn about you and your family and remembers details like kids and spouse names - even for people they don't see that often.
I can't speak to the field personnel that works for the Inspection group but I know the support functions do their best to include the field guys whenever possible on all the "fun" stuff.
Overall, the company is growing super fast but the leaders are adjusting where they need to and when they need to - but I have heard that can leave some people feeling like they are in a constant state of inconsistency. I believe that they have the right vision and are on the right track, though, so it should even out eventually.
Looking forward to retiring from Magnolia River when my time comes.
True family atmosphere, management actually cares about employees
Fast growth, can be hard to connect with so many workers in the field
