    I have been working at Chiquita Brands

    Pros

    Great Company, takes care of its employees. Great Benefits including a solid 401-k program. Several employee wellness programs, and they really take employee development seriously.

    Cons

    All of the pros mentioned above were prior to the take over by the Cutrale Cartel, so none of these exist anymore. The new owners are interested in "MONEY" and making as much of it as they can at the expense of the employees, some who have been with the company their entire careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your most important resource is your employees! If you understand that, and let them run the business, you will get your millions, and billions. If not, good luck!
