I have been working at Grupo Bimbo full-time (More than 10 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Fast paced, consumer brand driven company that reinvests in the business 80% of cash flow, has grown steadily for more than 68 years. Publicly traded in Mexico, yet run with many of the good things of a closely held, family business.

Fosters an environment of respect, trust, fairness and where leaders care for the people as much as they care for the financial results. Don't be fooled, this is not a "country club" the work is hard, the pace is at times brutal, but the opportunities to lead and go places are really great. The company has operations in about 19 countries and has lots of room for growth in almost every market.
In some countries, a 6 day workweek can be challenging. Compensation is competitive but not aggressively so.
