    I have been working at Morton Salt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good

    Cons

    They (Morton salt Cape Canaveral) say safety is first but in reality they work you to death in the heat to get numbers. The forklifts are not safe to drive but again they want numbers and product to run nonstop. Supervisor comes to work drunk on the weekends and there is no consequences but if we come in late we get points and 4 points your fired. They have no good air circulation so us workers are drenched in sweat while...

    Pros

    Great name to put on your resume. If you’re not a manager: you will have plenty of job duties and an expanded skillset to add as bullet points to help you get a better job elsewhere.

    Cons

    Favoritism runs rampant here. Shift from a hierarchical org. to a matrix structure and yet there’s an unspoken chain of command firmly in place. Completely inaccessible and clueless CEO. VP’s that spend endless time rehearsing speeches about innovation, promoting change, building the brand, and customer centricity, and providing transparency. Lots of new buzz words and very few deliverables or ROI to back it up....

    Advice to Management

    Stop the endless self promoting elevator pitches. Listen to the people doing the work, give them the authority and resources needed to be successful. The tighter you hold onto something in your hand the more that slips through it.

    Pros

    None if you’re trying to stay alive and if you take pride in products that you make for the consumers

    Cons

    Blatant disregard for safety and quality. Employees are routinely asked to disregard personal safety and quality rules in order to meet productive requirements. When employees who have firsthand experience with the situation reach out to management their ideas are routinely shot down. Recently Corporate sent HR to investigate safety and quality claims, but as soon as they left it was back to business as usual

    Advice to Management

    Instead of spending money on engineering Dreams, fix the issues presented by the employees who do the job

    They upper management says great pay, no other company, pays that way, but yet. Heaven forbid you would have to work in that environment.

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

    Pros

    -Invest in training and education for employees. -Pay and Bonus. -Benefits.

    Cons

    - Company is in a downward spiral. - Long term vision for the company is very bleak. - Lack of leadership/management at corporate level and plant levels. - Company values are present, but not practiced. Talks of change and culture, but nothing ever happens. - Facilities are beyond their life and in desperate need for repair. Investments are not being made in the right places.

    Advice to Management

    Start working together and quit working against each other. This company has so much potential, but has the wrong people in many of the positions. Hold Managers, Supervisors and Employees accountable.

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The office down town is centrally located by River close to Metra and CTA

    Cons

    Was a good close knit group to work with 5+ years ago but has been going down hill. CEO is removed from realty he just walks around trying to be cool wearing hoodie's and Jeans. The directors only want people who agree and like them. It is all a popularity contest now. People stab each other in the back just overall terrible environment to work in. Only people that have been at company little over year give 5 stars...
