    I have been working at Boar's Head full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free food, nice building, free parking.

    Cons

    Little opportunity, moderate benefits, little time off (no sick time), low pay (comparatively). IT is constantly down, many excuses with no action. 3 years and it has gotten worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the IT dead wood - a lot of overpaid, ineffective people down there, and it's killing the company.

    I have been working at Boar's Head full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are exceptionally caring and dedicated. Overall friendly environment. Management does seem to support worker's family life. Gives back to the community and charity is encouraged.

    Cons

    Senior Management is basically a "good ol' boys club". Promotions come from management preferences. Many people are overlooked and their talent is disregarded, unless you are young and attractive.Getting respect really depends on who you are in the eyes of Sr. Mgmt..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to understand and know the people who work for you. Most are loyal and dedicated to the brand. Pay scale is skewed/unfair, and swayed by Senior Management.. Promote from within and stop looking outside for the next great leader.

    I have been working at Boar's Head full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Product Benefits, Worked with good people

    Cons

    Awful management, Unfair HR process, No sick time, no PTO, bad overall benefits. If you had a doctor's appointment and needed to leave work, you still get a point, even after being approved even with a doctor excuse. The point system makes it impossible to keep a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees fairly, needs an ethics policy.

    IT leadership is horrible

    I have been working at Boar's Head full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health, dental and vision benefits, perks, free meals, nice office building, covered parking,

    Cons

    Expected to regularly work 50 to 60 hour weeks with no ability to hire help (unless you work in project management).

    Senior IT leadership plays favorites within the department building resentment.

    Senior IT leadership micromanages down to individual employees without talking to their managers.

    Senior IT leadership has no idea what it takes to implement the technology being requested and will not trust the experienced middle managers to do their jobs. This has resulted in several talented people leaving.

    The company prides itself on being 'family oriented' but that seems to have been forgotten in the pursuit of expansion and profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bite the bullet and clean house at the top of IT or the exodus will continue.
