    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Good benefits.

    Good pay for full time employees.

    A lot of hours in the summertime so overtime is great (if you don't mind working).

    Cons

    Production line time is based on available crop so you never know what time you are going to get off work. Hard to schedule an appt after work when you don't know what that time will be.

    Attendance policy is too strict. They expect you to be able to change your schedule at the blink of any eye, but you get an attendance point if you can't work late when they ask.

    Seasonal employee pay is low for they expect you to do.

    Advice to Management

    For years the management staff worked as a team. Now it seems as though each one is looking out for themselves. What happen?

    Pros

    The pay is good for the area that I live in. Most days the work load is not all that bad.

    Cons

    Upper management constantly lies. Human resources doesn't seem to care. A person's work schedule is constantly changing and they sometimes make you stay 4 hours late with no advanced notice. They take surveys and do the exact opposite. If you try talking to management you get nowhere except possibly looking for a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and respect your employees. We have lives too!
