    Pros

    This is a hard one to answer. If you can keep your conscience out of it and be a good yes Mam / Sir and let things roll off your back you’ll do good. If your friends with the plant manager you can get hired in with no experience and probably go farther than you thought.

    Cons

    Two tear system, Company would like brake union, Health care is a battle every step of the way and when the negotiated raise comes around – just figure on insurance cost going up with it to make it a wash.

    Advice to Management

    If the people thrive and are appreciated for trying harder to do it right, reward them. You cannot know it all. Take time to make a educated decision. Not a spur of the moment command decision that make it easy on you but harder for everyone involved. Try working close to what you are expecting or forcing everyone else to.

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Perks of working in a new building.

    Cons

    If you're not in the "favorite" club or buddies with your manager, don't expect to be of any value. You can be the best worker in your department, but you will still be of no value. Instead, you will be given more work than everyone else. However, if you are in the favorite club, you will have no complaints. There are a select few that barely does the minimum, yet receive promotions every year. I believe this is the reason a lot of people are jumping ship to work for other companies. Oh and please don't come here as a minority. You definitely wont get far here.

    Like a needle in a haystack

    Cons

    Pick your poison. Whatever you want in a great company will not be found here. Dead environment. Similar to walking into a funeral everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Make people your project and create a healthy work environment. Make people want to work. Workforce goes in for paycheck and leaves...

    Pros

    The new building is nice.

    Cons

    Everything else. If you love the mid 1800's you will love it here. Everything mirrors the old fashioned work culture/appeal.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and give the people a chance to want to work here.


  9. "Quality Control Lab Technician"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)

    I worked at Morton Salt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I would like to share my knowledge in chemical engineering by working in a laboratory and in a plant as well to do monitoring and testing of raw materials, packaging materials, and finished products as well. Also, as a quality control technician, we are responsible in maintaining the good environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes, if there are any problems with the finished products, packaging materials, raw materials, and the equipment as well, we are doing our best as much as we can to avoid pressures and rejections.

    I have been working at Morton Salt full-time

    Pros

    New building appears great and brings some light into the work space

    Cons

    Nothing changed other than the new work space. No additional flexibility and no change in the culture. The morale is down and it is looking like nothing will truly change for a good 5 to 10 years. Lots of great people come in and are promised things and unfortunately the integrity of the company does not hold true to its word. Great companies do not invest time in letting employees go, instead they empower their employees to grow with the company. Morton Salt is still learning and it is unfortunate how the company missed the chance with the move to rejuvenate the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on the employees that are with the company, instead of keeping your eyes on others outside the company. The only way to move forward is with a steady workforce. People make a company great.
