    little growth opportunities, but they are now making an effort in this area

    Pros

    Very intelligent people, pays well, high energy, and is demanding, if you appreciate that type of environment,(which is most good companies, today), work for ACH.

    Cons

    Not a career company but an employee can have a good run there and learn a lot, if self motivated.

    Advice to Management

    Install a female CEO and CFO.

    Pros

    ACH Food Companies is a young company with a lot of potential. Overall good work-life balance, training, people.

    Cons

    During my tenure no one in marketing had received a promotion, driving high turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be more open and flexible regarding part-time opportunities for working moms/dads, needs to provide strong incentives for people to stay. Also, helps to have an overall vision on company priorities and resources.

    Lean staff with alot of project work which can burn people out. Summer hours are a big help with this aspect of the job.

    Continue to focus on culture development and listening to employees

    Pros

    Very competitive salary and benefits. Working conditions excellent. Communication from upper management is frequent and open. Management tries hard to be employee friendly. Individual opinion is valued and initiative is rewarded. In general, this is a decent place to work.

    Cons

    Poor career advancement opportunities. Promotion from within at the manager through VP level is very infrequent. Management initiatives are frequently short-lived flavors of the day. Relatively stressful day to day focus on sales and profits...but where is that different?

    Advice to Management

    Focus on delivering big picture priorities. Eliminate the background clutter of time wasting, non-productive initiatives.

    Pros

    Company is small enough to stand out and see results. It's large enough to provide a good wage and benefits. Senior management does listen.

    Cons

    Occasionally, management gets stuck in a rut and needs to move out of the status quo.

    Pros

    Above average compensation.
    Solid work life balance.
    A good corporate citizen, contributing to and engaging with local charities to improve quality of life in the community.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for advancement.
    Little value on new ideas or approaches.
    Management looks at technology as nothing more than a 'keep the lights on' portion of the organization.
    Pointing out dissatisfaction within a portion of the organization results in silencing rather than attempts to address the dissatisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Open your mind and look too people with new and different ideas about how to get the most out of your workforce. Offer opportunity for growth and reward those who sieze those opportunities.
