    Pros

    Company has great benefits package, strong health benefits, 401k with matching funds. Also included pension plan until last few years.

    Cons

    Pay is not commensurate with abilities, they struggle with developing internal talent due to insufficient training program so many mid-level and above positions get filled from outside company.

    Advice to Management

    Change is a good thing if managed properly.... shifting too much, too quickly from a people oriented company to totally business results driven has been challenging.

    Pros

    McCormick is undergoing a lot of changes lately to stay competitive. We will do those changes aligned with our values and respect for people.

    Cons

    The industry is increasingly competitive and we will have to constantly search for innovative ways to beat the competition faster, better and cheaper.

    Advice to Management

    Drive change using the wonderful culture that has been and is McCormick. Doing it any other way will ensure failure.

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn and grow as an employee with room for advancement if you "fit' the norm. Company values are spoken continuously but not always followed. Compensation is good if you stick with it.

    Cons

    Upper management has bogged down the company in analysis paralysis. The accounting teams are now running the sales functions with answers to opportunities long gone by the time you need them. No trust among employees of management as of recently. New hires do not have a compensation plan to compare job offers as management will not publish and HR has no backbone to demand it. If you like meetings this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the business and get the accountants back to where they belong. It's after all a people business and you have the wrong people running it.

    Pros

    Great employees, on or above board pay and benefits, good work environment, the rank and file really treat people very well and are incredibly helpful

    Cons

    Management is disconnected from reality. Manufacturing operations would collapse without forced overtime. This is actually a 24/7 operation that is pitched to employees as a 24/5 operation, just be honest and do it right. Production stops for meetings, meetings, meetings, and more meetings. Huge emphasis on corporate politics.

    Advice to Management

    Get out on the shop floor. Listen to your employees, don't just provide lip service. Stop abusing the workforce more than you abuse the equipment. Say what you do, do what you say, your credibility is grossly suffering.

    Pros

    Ok pay,wonderful benefits package,free medical screens no co-pay for service or medication given at there facility.very stable company, tuition reimbursement after one year,opportunities for advancement(for those with a yes sir attitude) and incredible work life balance.ex:your allowed to use and "8hourday" slip once a month and alternative schedule.You get to take off a whole week with sick pay and it'll will be considered 1 occurrence out of the 7 your allowed per year..

    Cons

    very intrusive they will send a private investigator out if your sick for a while and when u damage any case you have to take a urine test each time and sometimes blood! your productivity is "timed" at the belcamp facility,and management will not compromise in that regard.your notified about weekend work only one day before.the older people snitch on you on a daily basis they have a culture that makes it ok for your co-worker to get you fired,even on minuscule issues.

    Advice to Management

    When people are telling you that a manager is disrespecting every selector it should be taking seriously.
