    Great job if you are the right person for that job.

    Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsGreat work life balance, pay was competitive, friendly co-workers, new office, free snacks, flexible scheduling, low pressure

    Consoffice was quiet and co-workers tended to keep to themselves. If you are social, this may not be the best place for you. Also, the work load was not that demanding which resulted in slow days. Not a lot of excitement throughout the day. Not that I require a marching band with dancing elephants to keep me satisfied at work, but a little effort to encourage cross function interaction could be a start.

    Advice to Senior ManagementModernize the work environment by creating a tech-like feel workplace. Energy and Innovation could go a long way, even for a relatively boring product such as snack crackers.

    Overall satisfactory experience.

    DSD Route Sales (Former Employee) Middletown, DE

    ProsGood DSD support. Warehousing provided at no cost. Good communication on upcoming promotions and product changes/additions. Supplies furnished at no cost.

    ConsStore Level DSD Support Lacking. IT could have a better attitude and better reliability. To much information sent down the chain when it did not involve DSD' needs or situation.

    It was a very positive experience.

    Senior Corporate Recruiter (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsLeadership was a progessive and forward thinking group. There was an entreprenueral flavor from senior managment that filtered throughout the organization. They are always in merger/acquisition mode.

    ConsThe flip side of being in acquistion mode is that while from the corporate stand point the organization gets stronger, in many cases, good individuals lose their positions. Many talented and outstanding individuals had their positions eliminated even though the organization itself got larger and stronger after a major merger. It is not as comfortable going in to work, and you don't perform at your best when you aren't sure if your position will be the next to be eliminated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think if there are going to be position eliminations due to a merger or acquisition, it would probably be better to have the announcements of those eliminations all at one time instead of having several different announcements 2 to 3 weeks apart from each other. It's asking a lot of employees to continue going about business as usual and focus on doing their best when they don't know if they're going to still be an employee by the end of the day or not.

    Great corporate work environment with lots of potential, ruined by lack of integrity in senior leadership.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSnyder's Lance has a very unique, positive corporate environment where you have great opportunitiies to grow, absorb and gain an up-close perspective of the company. There are great perks to the office environment and regardless of heavy workload - the overall sentiment of the workplace remains very positive and relatively stress-free. Your smartest approach is to leverage this company to gain knowledge and use that experience elsewhere for a true career path.

    ConsWhile you may enjoy learning and enjoying the positive enviornment, the opportunity for promotion, based on job responsibilities are few and far between. Be prepared to do more than your share of the work and gain valuable knowledge, but not be compensated or given an appropriate title & position to reflect your efforts. Leaders make promises they do not keep and ultimately loose the trust of the employees that work hard for them everyday.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake a true effort to maintain integrity when communicating with employees. Be very clear and direct with company decisions and learn to adequately compensate and promote employees based on contribution.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
