    Pros

    A decade ago, this facility was considered the wayward, out West upstarts of the ‘Mother’ ship in Hanover. Woefully inefficient, trying our best but without a strong trailblazer to show us the way. Since then, with Hanover making some brilliant yet very difficult key personnel changes, and after countless man-hours of hard work by all, we have accomplished a staggering amount of change, and run much more efficiently now through a strong, healthy mix of thriving morale and optimum business strategies. The Merger has made many new changes, most of them good I believe, and I understand and applaud the vision of the Senior Leadership corp to strengthen and fortify the plants that need the leg-up.

    Cons

    Downside to us is forget about any capital money coming our way for about a decade or two, and it sure appears to the Financial types that we are now the golden goose to wring out of us more and more profits through vast reductions in budgets, cutbacks, project cancellations, etc. Tentatively cautious about stunting our growth and prosperity through too much trimming. Continously challenging us is a positive and continous growth stimulator however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All said, I do have faith in our leaders, the overall vision, and firmly believe that eventually all of the plants will achieve personal record levels of success and the Snyders-Lance team will continue to thrive and prosper, and I’m confident we will challenge and win out over the behemoths of our industry one day soon.

    Pros

    The past 4 years have been fantastic, the respect and kindness from the executive team here has been like no other in my past 15 years of employment.

    Cons

    Concerned with the merger, in hopes the companies will continue to show such respect and kindness to employees and ego's are checked at the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopes upper managment will keep a check on true company values....I have seen and experienced from Executive and Sr. Management the best of human behavior and values from this company and hope this will continue for the future. In a difficult time for our country and concerns for everyone to keep their positions and jobs....we must remember to treat others with respect.
