Do Not Work Here
Marketing Strategy (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 22, 2018
I would not advise anyone to work here. Upper management is horrible. They micromanage every projects which extends all due dates. Upper management is also old without current ideas or vision. It is very disorganized and i don't get the sense that they value their employees. Beware.

Other (Current Employee) –  Long Island, NYDecember 15, 2017
Complete lack of management. Team leads are 20 year olds with no sense of business acumen. Team leads in conjunction with the Director are running the company into the ground. Run far if you're contacted by a recruiter for a role here!!!

Good place to work for when starting your career but no room for career growth. No raises. No incentives.
Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Long Island City, NYNovember 26, 2017
Mechoshade is a good place to work when starting out your career; however career growth isn't remotely possible. If you like to focus on one skill, it can be good place to work. There are not different challenges over time. The environment is fairly balanced between stressful and not.

disorganized work place
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Long Island City, NYMay 9, 2017
This is a very disorganized workplace. Work life balance is very poor. There is low visibility and accountability on workload completion. There is almost no training provided whatsoever. This is a sink or swim type of environment with little direction provided by management. Management is so preoccupied with their day to day tasks that as a new member of the team you are pretty much neglected and your actual performance is overlooked. The way the PM department is structured, it opens up the doors for office politics dictating your performance as opposed to your performance being dictated by workload completion and quality. As an employee here, work is being delegated to you by way too many different people and you're expected to report to them all; it's like having 10 different bosses who all expect you to do their work immediately regardless of the current workload you may have on your desk for the others. There are also interoffice rivalries here which disrupt work flow and focus.
Pros
There are some great people to work with here.
Cons
Overworked

Excellent environment to work
Senior Accountant (Current Employee) –  Long Island City, NYApril 28, 2017
Excellent all round environment to work. The most enjoyable part about this job is being able to bring new ideas that will better the company overall, and being taken seriously. Being allowed to voice your opinion.

Great work enviorment
Design, Project Engineer / Inventor User (Current Employee) –  Long Island City, NYDecember 12, 2016
While my stay at MechoSystems was short, it was filled with happiness and a sense of community. I worked with the mechanical engineering department which was a great place to ask questions, get work done and laugh alongside a group of individuals who made the workplace fun and peaceful.
Pros
Commute, coworkers and insurance

Boring!
Estimator (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 1, 2015
This is an extremely boring position, so be warned. They expect you to pick up everything about this companies inner working with little support, and are expected to figure it out on your own. I was recently told he, him, nor I am your encyclopedia. OK, so...learn by Osmosis, or what? If I dare ask a question, the look of utter disappointment is sure to follow.
Pros
Hour Lunch Break
Cons
Working there...Lack of employee appreciation, work, work, work. It's all about the mighty dollar, and makes for an extremely long day, especially with an over-bearing, perfectionist of a supervisor.

Productive and diverse place to work.
Order Entry Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Long Island City, NYJune 17, 2015
MechoSystems provides predominantly eco-friendly window shades to it's customers, as well as offers a few other products.
The employees come from all walks of life and form a sort of family while at work.
Upper-management has it's moments, but they eventually work things out as a team.
If asked whether or not I would work at this company again... I would respond with, yes I would.
Pros
Celebration of holidays and recognition of associates.
Cons
Rate of pay as related to the cost of living in NYC.

Relaxed and team orientated
MACHINE OPERATOR/ROLLER (Former Employee) –  Edison, NJMay 5, 2015
Work shift typically starts at 6 am and ends at 2pm. I would operate machine that produced fabrics used for shades and curtains. I would also be a roller (worker who roll product, check measurements using tape measure, and inspect quality of prodcut) about half a work week.
Management was excellent and very involved with workers. Workers were very in tune and ready to help as much as possible. Pretty much an easy and fun at times.
Best part of the job had to be the people.
Pros
3 breaks in total, 45 min lunch

It was an okay place to work
Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee) –  Long Island City, NYFebruary 8, 2015
Nothing much to do at work. I didn't learn anything new. My superior was a nice woman. My co-workers and I hardly ever spoke to each other, but judging from the brief conversations we have had I would have to say that they are okay. There was nothing difficult about the job. I did not enjoy working there because it was not challenging enough.

Good product, poor location, horrible upper management
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Long Island City, NYMarch 31, 2014
The product is interesting in terms of managing building environments.

A typical day involves getting screamed at by the owners, repeatedly, often for doing exactly what they asked you to do. The hardest part of the job is getting anything done once senior management is involved, you can hear them screaming at people all day, every day, a full Queens block away, and through three concrete slabs.

As long as you can stand the insane levels of abuse from the owners, you can learn a bit. However, it's nothing you couldn't learn at any other company, and do it without the constant hell the owners create.
Pros
The renovated offices are nice looking.
Cons
Extremely abusive behavior by owners, Poor pay, CYA culture.

Great place if you don't mind Mexican music or gossip
Extrusion Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 11, 2014
A typical day at work usually involves small repetitive tasks with coworkers minding their own business. Two half hour breaks every couple hours. And the smell of pizza at lunch time.
The team leads and supervisors let a lot slip there attention when it comes to lazy employees. Especially the leads who kill time talking to each other.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with other employees who either try to get on your nerves or don't do their job. Not to mention washing their hands of the blame when something turns out bad.
The most enjoyable part, clocking out.
Pros
Easy Tasks, Lots of young people, decent amount of break time, lots of overtime
Cons
Mexican Clown Music, Gossip, Rap blasting at top volume.
