      Pros

      Joined MT from IT Consulting Company, Before joining went through Glassdoor review and Bit Hesitant how the things will be here but after joining I can see it is at same fast pace speed company.MT Focuses on employee development and invest in the people. 4 Rounds of Interview was pleasant and very smooth. Excellent benefits(Relocation, Joining Bonus, Perks) and Employee culture I can't expect in the other MFG Org Somewhat similar to Large IT Company Benefits. Big IT teams to Support Many Legacy Systems. They are now transforming to Oracle Cloud to go Next Generation ERP System and Keep 40% Growth Challenge. Mass Recruiting in All-Area(Especially in IT) to match the company Growth. Good Life balance as of now, but I will keep update based on the Experience.

      Cons

      1.Unorganized business: Due to Sudden Growth, many things are changing and getting consolidated 2.Longer Interview Process: took 3 Months and Multiple Followup. TD team needs to work a lot in this area. Due to this, many candidates lose interest after 1-2 Interview Rounds. No Cons- Just FYI-All IT Teams located in the Menomonee Falls Building instead of the Main Brookfield Location.

      Fast paced, Candid, Success-Oriented

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decisions are made quickly, resourcing new opportunities happens fast. Process serves people, not the other way around, and can be changed on a dime to accommodate changing conditions. Professional growth is downright rapid compared to other companies. Toward business ends, and professional development goals, employees at all levels are invited to go right to the limits of their abilities, knowing full well that outcomes won't be perfect, but that aiming high yields better results than not. No shame in asking for help, giving and receiving info candidly. Tons of employee perks. If you work here, your hand is on the collective rudder. Probably the best place I've ever worked.

      Cons

      Nighttime calls to coordinate with overseas counterparts, which is pretty inescapable in the modern era.

      Culture Breeds Success

      Pros

      Out of all the places I have worked this is the only one that you can see the culture statements in action on a daily basis. They are not just some words provided by a 3rd party marketing firm and printed on some slides to hand out. The culture is alive a present in every project, decision, and team celebration.

      Cons

      With explosive growth come challenges. The company is hiring at incredible rate, but at time resources are thin to cover all the project work. Leadership is aware, and working to address.

      Great culture - extreme growth

      Pros

      Amazing culture. Employees (in the majority of areas) feel empowered to speak up and debate/challenge peers and managers. The growth has been nuts over the last 10 years and shows no sign of slowing down!

      Cons

      The growth provides a lot of opportunities but also is challenging to manage. Everything from project load to constant recruiting/hiring of teammates gets more difficult when you are doing it at a breakneck pace.

      Cons

      Fast pace and growing pains are challenging.
