    I worked at ARYZTA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    (Ogden, Utah sub company Otis Spunkmeyer) Nice perks for employees, they have freebies of products in the lunch room like their cookies and muffins they also include fruit. Good spectrum of benefits that were affordable. The latest I ever worked was until 6. If you are just looking for a company to chill with and don't care to move up it is a good place to be. Overrall good environment

    Cons

    Company going through a lot of change. Felt like cloak and dagger. Tried to put employees at ease so they would not quit, but it just backfired. No real room to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allowing favored employees to "run the show" and not giving enough positive attention to employees that are actually working hard

    I worked at ARYZTA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Allows one to work 24/7 without any regard to life! Perfect for those expecting minimal raises. Perfect for single individuals or those who can afford a nanny to provide care for your family.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management, lack of life/balance, lack of cross-functional teamwork, unachievable financial targets, expat management that lacks family values, 2 weeks vacation and 7 company holidays, inefficient processes, motivated by bakery closures, lack of empathy for the "common citizens of the U.S.", value in profit before human values, lack of understanding of industry, and many more!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that work is not the most important thing in life. Working individuals to the point at which they break is not healthy for an individual or the company! It's time for ARYZTA to value their employees and not just expecting them to give up life for ARYZTA! If you desire to work 24/7, I truly feel sad for you, and especially your family!

    Pros

    the people in production are good hardworking people

    Cons

    management sets rules and procedures and then they don't follow them themselves under trained staff and this place relies on the buddy system too much. plus worked there almost 4 years only one raise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at ARYZTA full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros about working here. I have never experienced such terrible leadership, policies, and Human Resource personnel in my life.

    Cons

    I do not even know where to begin. Lazy workers, gossip, clicks, mandatory overtime, no work life balance, no continuous improvement; this is a company that is stuck in the 90's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. Do a better job retaining the true talent instead of letting them walk out the door.

    I worked at ARYZTA part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free soda and water. Some of the people in the office are friendly and appreciate your hard work. They train you enough to get by.

    Cons

    Down times, sometimes you feel like you're not needed, gossipy work environment, takes over a year to get hired on from a temp agency, lay offs with a slight of their hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a little bit more encouraging.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Otis Spunkmeyer. My immediate supervisor and managers were some of the best I ever worked for.

    Cons

    Due to company re-alignments the entire structure of our office changed for the worse and my position became just a "job". The work atmosphere ceased being enjoyable anymore. Too many VP's, too much empire building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember when you grow, you need to take your soul with you

    I worked at ARYZTA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a good Company, no going through re-org fanaticism trying to increase profits and asking everyone to do their job and 3 others.

    Cons

    Horribly led, blind leading the blind. I think there are literally 500 people with "DVP" or "SVP" titles. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians and they seem to have no idea what they are doing at the top. The Company is organized in to little silo's or fiefdoms and every silo does it's own thing without regard for any centralized strategy. Maybe I'm wrong and there is a strategy, but they keep it to themselves, making sure no-one knows what that strategy is. It's starting to get comical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a refund from your Irish management school, they ripped you off.

    Pros

    A great place to gain experience in the field you enjoy to start building your resume.

    Cons

    Probably not the place if you are looking for high compensation or training programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training should be a focus for employees and better HR/Employee relationship building. Company needs to remember to place focus on team building as well.
