Lack of culture
Sales (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 11, 2018
As a remote employee it is very difficult to get information. Management is very self promoting. Currently experiencing an exodus of trained personnel.

HR manager Speak with forked tongue
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Rittman, OHMay 21, 2018
Careful with HR, they speak any means to get you in the door, especially scheduling.
Pay is pretty good, however there current insurance package is terrible compared to other competeing companies, mine as well accept another job for a few dollars less an hour for better insurance.
Work/Life balance is terrible, count on working pretty much every holiday.
CO-workers and even Supervisors are good people, and pleasant to work with.
Morale is pretty low.
PTO is low, compared to other competeing companies.
The problem I see is management is so used to pushing around the senior workers who have 20+ years service who cannot make a career change this late in there life, the company is used to getting there way. New workers see this mistreatment, and quickly leave, therefore the company has a high turnover rate, especially in the maintenance department.

Management is poor
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Silver Springs, NYMarch 13, 2018
Upper management is poor and underdeveloped. No respect for personal life, co workers are cutthroat to throw anyone under the bus they can to make them look better.

Enjoyed working at Morton good job, benefits and good co- workers
Electrician (Former Employee) –  Newark, CAJanuary 1, 2018
Morton Salt was a VPP work place it took a while to accomplish
lots of hard work between the company and the union but it was well worth it to work at a safe place and to have input into the process.In maintenance we worked as a team to find and fix problems when they arose. The operators had input in this process which helped us in maintenance and management to improve the job safety and productivity. The newer and older personal learned from each other which helped all to improve our game.

Excellent for benefits but management lacks professional development
LOGISTICS ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 12, 2017
workplace culture seems cut-throat. Management is looking for making a name for themselves instead of developing their team. Hardest part of the job is watching someone make false promises regarding service and then not addressing root cause for failure.
Pros
work from home flexibility, location
Cons
poor management

Unsecure place to work for a temp.
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 28, 2017
They need to offer temps permanent jobs if they are doing well at the job. The temps are not appreciated for their dedication and effort. The nice thing about working there was the view. The building has a very beautiful view of downtown and the city.

Good salary - culture is trending the wrong way
rather not say (Current Employee) –  Grantsville, UTNovember 9, 2017
Salary is very competitive. It used to have a great culture where the employer cared about the employees. It is now all about how much more production the plant can create while at the same time forcing people in on overtime consistently. We have always worked hard and had a very good working atmosphere where we were proud to come to work. Now it is just squeezing every bit of production we can get while eliminating jobs and the feeling of caring.
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Employees and front line leaders not treated well by management

Best Job I ever had
Forklift operator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 30, 2017
Morton is a company that values good work and thus, good workers. They pay accordingly. They offer lots of benefits that are not money driven---off on your birthday, company outings, etc. Too bad the plant closed it's Chicago warehouse.
