    Pros

    Good pay, full benefits package, great coworkers. I enjoy the diverse workload, and that my boss is great at assigning work that both fits our talents and is what we enjoy doing.

    Some of the computer systems are outdated but still functional. Otherwise all is good.

    Since our employees are in 70+ locations, it is important that we occasionally hear from the CEO and Officers.

    Pros

    There is a lot of autonomy in this job, which I like. I can help to write my job description by finding the work I really like to do. My manager really encourages our strengths, and tries to assign work to who can best get it done.

    Cons

    Our company is involved in so many facets of the food industry that it will take a while to really learn it all. But it is fascinating to see all these areas, and work with so many experts.

    Advice to Management

    I am glad to see a strong focus on training and learning, especially at the leadership level. Communication is key at all levels. Keep up the good work.
