    I worked at Morton Salt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    New mgmt team has come in with a positive outlook and energy. Exactly what we need to be successful.

    Cons

    As onlookers it’s not a good thing when certain team members seem to be too close for comfort. We need to be able come in an speak freely and certain mgmt be around. It’s just a bad look when recent duo team often are unavailable at the same time. Open door policy well why are doors shut. Teamwork is definitely not what new mgmt is flowing down it’s more like a concentration camp. Do as I say not do as I portray. Production is down because no support of the employees. We break our backs for what just to be whipped and told your wrong if it wasn’t my idea. We had such high hopes this is the worse ever morale is down no one wants to go the extra mile because no respect. This new team exactly where did they come from and what’s the connection. A company lost again. Why is there no high level representation of certain people always just workers.

    I have been working at Morton Salt full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent place to start off and a couple of great group of people.

    Cons

    This company was one of the best around until the previous mgmt team all left. Now we are left with people who are their for the money and don’t care about giving us our raises, or feelif they have a fake meeting for black people that they didn’t even attend and yet don’t even talk to us as people that we should feel they care about us as people. All these meetings they had were a show. That lasted a few weeks. Most of the time doors are shut and conversations are one sided as they stay on their phones. Everyone has checked out. Said our hours would change and that hasn’t happened either.

    Pros

    It has a nice office location in Chicago, that is it.

    Cons

    There are too many to specify. Terrible management, rampant office politics, if you don't act like a slave and work 24/7 you will not stand a chance. Avoid this company at all costs.

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to start off your career and and build experience by wearing a variety of different “hats”. You will learn tons of catchy business phrases and acronyms that are used in meetings that could have been an email.

    Cons

    You will receive very little training in the business processes or “best practices” required to complete you job duties. Upper Managment spends tons of their time in meetings and has little time to provide direction or communication to the departments they are in charge of. Frequency of layoffs due to cost cutting measures provided by Hackett: remaining employees are put in the position to train their senior managers and VP’s of Departments. But are given little information regarding the change management taking place throughout the organization. Evidently change management and C.O.E.’s are terms that translate to you better start looking for a new job.

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time

    Pros

    Most people are very friendly, gorgeous office space, generally flexible schedule, and some decent free snacks.

    Cons

    Managers are weak minded and lack basic leadership skills. Organization is constantly in state of analysis paralysis which slows ever thing down to a snail's pace. The irony is that the decisions that are made are done entirely too quickly and without the right / complete resources available to do the job. Leaders quiver at making a mistake, and will throw former employees under the bus to cover their own behind.
