    I have been working at JR Simplot

    Pros

    Privately owned, not driven by Wall Street. Family owned, a very real sense of valued employees, owners reinvest to grow the company.

    Cons

    Not always fast to react, some intercompany dealings can be a hassle due to family relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what is right for the overall business, rather than be swayed by the special interest groups.
