Beaver dam east MEC
Paint line support (Former Employee) –  Beaver Dam, WIApril 16, 2018
terrible management, always lying to your face as if they truly believe you’re foolish enough to believe it, often used write ups and scare tactics as a way to motivate employees rather than positive reinforcement. Otherwise pay was alright and job security was good. Overtime was crazy at times, 60 hour weeks for months at a time.
Pros
Pay alright, lots of overtime, good job security.
Cons
Very laborious work, poor management, long hours at times.

poorly ran and told things that are false
Robot Welder (Former Employee) –  Neillsville, WIMarch 25, 2018
Mayville engineering isn't a bad place to work if you don't have kids or have a life. There isn't any room for advancement unless your a favorite around there. The upper management is very poor and you have to work there for many years to make a decent wage.
Pros
stock ownership for retirement
Cons
poor management, long hours, no advancement

A mess of a company with poor pay and poorer management
Welder and Fabricator (Former Employee) –  Mayville, WIFebruary 18, 2018
Bad management, no bonuses, poor training, no incentives and no raises
I didn't get my yearly raise until a year and a few months because they just didn't get to it. And they promise a 90 day review but that never happened
Basically had to befriend co workers in order to get trained. Co workers will literally steal from you and the company and never get in trouble. Management never is held accountable for its mistakes. I could go on and on
Pros
Hm
Cons
Short breaks and lying management

Stay Away From Beaver Dam Locations.
Assembler, Welder, Paint, Shipping. (Former Employee) –  Beaver Dam, WIJanuary 21, 2018
This company with promise you 40 hour work weeks/4 10 hour days. After your first week you'll be putting in 5 10 or 5 12 hour days, and even 4 to 8 hours on a Saturday. They are not family friendly, work life balance is none. By the time you get home, eat and shower, you can't hardly stay awake so you go to bed. Most workers are drug addicts, and most department managers are x cons. There's a few decent normal people to get along with which helps you get through the day. Management just pages workers all day and never go out on the floor. If there's a personal issue, production issue, or safety issue. They don't care. Getting the product out the door is #1. If you're a good worker and have standards, you will get decent pay, and get moved up. You're reward will be more hours. You will also start getting bumped to different departments. Management doesn't care if someone quits, on a weekly basis 5 people would walk out due to poor conditions, or the long hours. You'll get replaced, then that person will. The factory is always busy, and never slowed down like some. You get stock in the company so if you can work there until retirement you will get a big pay out, but average most people stay there 2 to 5 years. You won't get production bonuses, or raises, maybe a coffee mug for Christmas. If by some chance you get a raise, you wont see it until 3 months later or until you talk to h.r If you need a job badly to make ends meet, or have no social life work here.
Pros
Always busy, get stock. NOTHING ELSE
Cons
Everything.

Stay away if you want to keep your sanity!
Paint Line (Former Employee) –  Mayville, WIJanuary 20, 2018
I worked here for a short period of time and would not recommend this place to anyone. Horrible supervisors and leads throughout the company, no room for advancement unless you kiss butt 24/7 or sleep with your boss, coworkers are always too focused on their personal drama to get their job done. They'd much rather gossip about who's sleeping with who than actually work. Job ethic was just poor overall with this company and nobody seemed to care. I was working 12 hour shifts 5 days a week and was never trained hands-on, just spoken to. Ridiculous company to work for. McDonald's is a better place to work.
Pros
Lol nope
Cons
Underpaid, ridiculous hours, horrible management

Stressful days long hours
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Neillsville, WIJanuary 17, 2018
Days are long and stressful. Run down machines that don't get fixed. Poor management. Working 12 hour days is a norm. No planning-just throw jobs out on the floor whenever which leads to a lot of overtime. No work/life balance.
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
Poor management, 12 hour days, broke down machines

BRAKE PRESS OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Mayville, WINovember 29, 2017
I would not recommend this company to someone as it is currently managed. Not a family or work'/life balance friendly environment. Common Mandatory 50, or more, hours per week. Hours change all the time. Hard to plan or establish an outside work life.

Enjoy the people and changes going on. Since this Employee owned Company has grown, it seems focus on the employees has diminished. Environment is quick paced and enjoyable.

Could be much better
Product Design Engineer/Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Byron Center, MISeptember 6, 2017
Overall my experience has been positive. In some plants, good management exists, in other plants it's depressing and down right sickening the way people get treated by management. Terrible in some locations, excellent in others.

Some plants would benefit with new management and about a years worth of outside consulting on procedures, documentation and data management.
Pros
Lots of potential with the right management.
Cons
Potential is in trouble with certain managers
