That looks like it is providing the information I need, but the identity column is being truncated.  How would we show the column regardless of length?

get-mailboxpermission mbx | fl
this will show you all the attribute values you can get using any mailbox for an example, pick the ones you want and then run something like

get-mailbox | get-mailboxpermission | where { $_.isinherited -ne $true } | ft Identity,User,AccessRights
