    Large corporation with many opportunities

    Maintenance (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, community involvement, part of something big. There is plenty of room for growth and to bring growth. Seem to care about surrounding communities.

    ConsUnderstaffed on the CSD plant level, unorganized. Revolving door. Claim to be diversified but then have segregated groups working within the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate, add more staff and organize. Management could add more staff to take care of the business. Most of the weight is carried on the shoulders of a few.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Zero Work/Life Balance

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent pay, decent health benefits, job security if you're willing to give your life to the company.

    ConsZero work/life balance, low pay for the hours worked, poor communication between senior and middle management, very little advancement opportunity without a college degree regardless of success in current role.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A fast-paced environment that is exciting but exhausting

    Human Resources Representative (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    Pros- Great learning experience; I felt like i gained 6 years of experience in 3
    - Good metrics; I was able to use data to hold my team accountable
    - Solid policies and resources

    Cons- Long hours, and roles that keep expanding with titles that keep shrinking
    - Competitive across the HR community; not a big sense of commrodery
    - Outdated technology; I didn't have a smart phone but had to use a Nextel

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo drive retention in HR , rotate people into a mixutre of Generalist and Specialist roles to prevent the generalist from getting burned out. Do more to drive culture of work/life balance and if that's not an option, help add perks that make the work hours a bit easier.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good for experience, Management is disconnected from the front line employees.

    Reset Specialist (Former Employee)
    Modesto, CA

    ProsDecent pay
     Decent benefits
    Good coworkers
    Given the tools and training to do your job
    Well known company brand

    ConsManagement who is disconnected from the front line employees
    Work/life balance is awful
    Very political
    No room to advance unless you are someones friend/relative
    Not paid for most of your overtime, but expected to work it anyway

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that upper management/supervisors aren't who are merchandising/selling/delivering your product, it's your front line employees. Supervisors are inept at best.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
