    Pros

    Fantastic environment. Great people to work with. They truly care about the education and career of the interns. Would have loved to stay with them after the internship was over.

    Cons

    Truly, I enjoyed my experience. I have no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide these opportunities to future law students.

    Pros

    The management knows what they are doing and it shows. The benefits are solid and they treat their employees great.

    Cons

    The locations of the business are not what I'd call ideal if you're a big city type person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with...you get diverse cross-functional opportunities to grow keeping in mind your interests and aptitude. I have seen HR person can jump into Plant Mgmt and vice versa plus much more. I was personally given immense opportunities by the company both in US and Internationally to grow and move around different business functions and locations. you need to PROVE your worth first before the honeytaps are opened up by decision makers. Compensation is average for the food industry but there is great deal of stability.

    Cons

    Diversity is sorely lacking in the Organization. No clearly defined career path for above-average performers and thats frustrating. Also too soft and liberal in tackling the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Cumbersome systems that require lot of time and efforts to make changes happen. More flexibility & entrepreneurial spirit is required. Innovation needs to be formally recognized and rewarded at all levels of the Organization.Need more latitude in taking risks and fast decisions.Transparency in making decisions is also needed...lot of time there appears to be no logic behind some decisions being made. We need hard-nosed , ruthless negotitators and leaders to survive the competition especially outside the US.

    Pros

    Cutting edge multi-billion dollar privately owned family company in a small town. Worked with many people who later moved on to high value companies around the world.

    Cons

    Because it is a private owned family company most people are not familiar with the company that produces the food millions of people eat every day.

    Advice to Management

    Do some commericals about the company. Think BASF commercials...we dont make things, we make the things that other people make things from...something like that.
