    I have been working at CSM Bakery Products full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Training opportunities and being part of a team that cares about the companies overall growth.
    The work-life balance is good.. the managers are considerate..

    Cons

    No issues with time-off policy...a lot of politics in upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to employees who have a vast knowledge and experience in the field, is an profound way to cut cost and frustration on a project. Having a timetable is ideal in order to establish focus and timeline for every step in the project.

    Pros

    all bad about the company since it was sold by owner

    Cons

    earning decent pay is difficult when you make 10.00 driving forklift and you remain at temt status for the hours they require you to do before becoming ft employee, 5 hours to go then they move you to another position in which your time starts back at 0,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do your employees right and you will keep a great staff, until then the turnover rate will remain high.

    This company has lost its direction and with being purchased by an investment company has added even more chaos.

    Pros

    The people are the best thing that can be said about this company. You will never meet a group of people who are more friendly.

    Cons

    The company while performing best in the US and is failing in Europe is following European practice for its North American company. The direction makes no sense. Average pay raises do not meet cost of living increase.

    I have been working at CSM Bakery Products full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I work with a great team committed to improvement and growth. The company, despite the hardships continues to offer employees incentives and fun distractions at work and beyond. We have company functions like our summer picnic and Christmas party, but we have the opportunity to get discount tickets to movies, Six Flags, Hawks games, etc.

    Cons

    The company has gone through more than it's fair share of major organizational changes in the past five years. This makes the environment feel unstable.

    I worked at CSM Bakery Products full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interdepartmental communications are improving. Manufacturing ability is strong. A large presence with in-store bakeries, other channels not so much. Have production facilities across North America.

    Cons

    Recently spun off by parent company to a holding company. There is probably restructuring in the cards - keep the plants, cut the people. Life in the 21st century.

    I worked at CSM Bakery Products full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lower level employees take pride in there work and are dedicated.

    Cons

    Senior management team only cares about themselves and how much money they can make. They are Inconsistent in treatment of staff, good ole boy network and very dishonest. Only the two female SMT members are knowledgeable. Inappropriate relationships with SMT males and female employees are overlooked and ignored.

    Flat organization. No room growth.

    Poor pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out senior management for a fresh start. Unless the new owners clean out the greedy leaders, this company will remain the same which is unfortunate because the plant employees take pride in what they do.
