    Pros

    It use to be a good company.

    Cons

    Horrible management, all the long term employees are getting treated horrible!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ever since the merger, new supervisor lets the title get to his head, I've been with the company for 25 years and they're making me do new hire work. All because I didn't see the jobs on the bulletin, and his only response was, don't forget next time. What a bunch of crap. I think it's a whole lot of race issues. Spoke with the supervisor and he does nothing but gives everyone else hours. You're making the wrong mistake by firing the good ones and letting the bums come to work.

    Pros

    At one point there was a very entrepenorial spirit and employees encouraged to pursue ideas and opportunities.

    Cons

    With the 'merger' the leadership is interested in retaining 'followers' who will comply with stale practices of the past and not rock the boat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire, promote, and retain the best and create a culture that challenges the status quo.

    I have been working at Snyder's-Lance as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    work by yourself and at your pace.

    Cons

    15 years of dsd experience, i have never worked for or with a company that the chain of command had no morals or ethics. They will lie to your face. i am not sure how that they sleep at night.they only want to sell the brands that they own and not their partner brands, because they make bonus off of the company brands. i am all about money also but why carry the partner brands if you aren't going to push them, or allow the ibo's to push them. managment makes money for the local dc but cost the company thounsands. i.e. sells pallets locally for 1.50 then the company has to buy new ones to be able to ship our product at a cost of at least 8.00 a pallet for a net loss of 6.50 a pallet. i hope that nobody hear has stock with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give your team some morals and ethics training and while your at it give yourself some, if by chance you don't know anything about these problems then shame on you and you should fire yourselfs for not doing your jobs. come out of your office and check out the real world mr lee

    I have been working at Snyder's-Lance as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can grow your potential. Somewhat decent pay.

    Cons

    No training to new employees. Health Insurance is a joke. Communication to IBO's is lacking to say the least. Set cutoffs make it near impossible to give your customers the time and attention each store needs and deserves.District Managers and IBO's are overworked and under compensated for the hassles that Snyders doesn't handle but always has a new excuse for. Company name almost completely tarnished. Protected area only protected from other Snyders- Lance employees. Customers are easily able to get our product from other distributors which seriously cuts into our pay. We are the ones to lose money in all areas as in stale product, promotional discounts to customers, Management does not back nor support the route reps. Turnover is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please understand who is out here making you your money, Make it somewhat worthwhile to the IBO's. Provide training to employees so that they may last longer than a year and ruin their credit in the process. Stale product, promotional credits and other losses the IBO incurred should not be solely the loss of the IBO. Stand behind your Employees. A chance at being successful is all we want. Are the profits you are receiving now worth all of the risks that are being taken. Customers have a real bad taste in their mouth with the company as a whole because they are not being taken care of because of lack of support from the company and they will find other ways of getting the product. A certain major chain account is already throwing Lance out of their stores. Unfortunately this is just the beginning of that.
