“Working here is so fulfilling. You get to embrace different people and interact with people from all walks of life despite their religion race gender or disability status. When employees share experiences about life, and the challenges people experience and what it means to be part of the MDI team, there is nothing better than that.”

“Here, my ideas matter. Even if they are not used, there's at least a discussion to find the right course of action. It’s a 'family-like' culture here, something I’ve never seen. Everyone cares about their job and for others, picking each other up when we need to.
