    I have been working at Bay Valley Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, vacation and pay.

    Cons

    Upper management finds it easy to cut employees. You never know if it's your last day when you walk in the door. Employee turnover is high. Job is physically demanding and it's easy to make an expensive mistake. Company cuts costs, sometimes at the expense of a safe work environment. No opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Try taking advice from low level managers. Stop the "permanent temp" labor shift.

    Tree house foods seems like a good company. Pay and benefits package

    Pros

    You have some people with great experience and knowledge.

    Cons

    A out-dated business model. Too many mid/senior management. There is a lack of leadership. And there are too many people trying to get by without actually right skills.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking of the past.

    I worked at Bay Valley Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Up until a management change I was treated respectfully and my work was valued. I loved my team mates!

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough workers. In my group, all of the legacy employees were laid off to bring in cheaper entry level workers. Experience, knowledge, commitment are not valued nor appreciated. Unless they change they will continue the downward spiral they are now on.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage what you have well before you buy something new. Appreciate your workers! Value their knowledge and experience! Reward loyalty and hard work instead of lay offs disguised as "restructuring". If you treat your workers as human beings your company will grow and thrive.

    Pros

    People focused. Work life balance. Plan our production schedule around holidays and local events to give employees time with their families. Constant investment in the facility. Incredible growth. Quality focus. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Some employees have a bad attitude and make others unhappy. Some departments or shifts are not held to the same standards as others.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the current path. Keep listening to employees and address their concerns quickly. Follow up with staff.
