    I worked at Annie's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great perks: gym on sight, massage sometimes. Nice office environment physically and good insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Some departments in this organization do not reward proven goal achieving employees via promotion or financially, without a Bachelors degree or prior prior public company experience. This organizations does not demand internal organization healthy attitudes for team-play, only healthy food.

    Horrible Work Environment

    I worked at Annie's full-time

    Pros

    If you work in Sales you can do whatever you want, if you work in any other department you'll want to run as fast as you can.

    Cons

    Terrible, backstabbing environment. They say all the right things in public, then go behind closed doors and do the exact opposite. No leadership from the top and zero coordination between departments. They have 3rd world systems and processes yet expect 1st world results and when that can't be delivered they get rid of you and repeat the same thing again with the next poor soul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The entire executive team doesn't have an once of humility or empathy, stop listening to the sound of you own voice for a minute and listen to the people who actually do the work.

    Pros

    In my time at Annie's I have been given numerous opportunities to grow, develop and experience new things. The company is growing and exciting to be a part of.

    Cons

    Many employees have a long commute which can be a downside for those individuals. Aside from that, I can't think of any others.

    Disconnected from management. Management supplying no vision or goals.

    Pros

    You wear a lot of hats.

    Cons

    There were no company goals set and no visibility to strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1 company meeting in 2 years is probably not sending the right message.
