    Growth and Opportunity!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

    ProsI have been at Blue Diamond now for over 2 years and have enjoyed every moment. Business success has been extraordinary, especially for a food & beverage company. We are experiencing double-digit growth, challenging old assumptions about who we are, and rapidly adapting our businesses and processes to sustain our success! There are great opportunities for talented people willing to work "in the white space" of the organization to have an impact!

    ConsGrowth and change require agility, an open-mind, and a willingness to "roll up the sleeves"; these are prerequisites for success at Blue Diamond!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
