    Pros

    Day shift schedules are nice, management is pretty good. Work is not that hard (load cups all day.

    Cons

    Management is pretty bias on favorable workers, no night shift dif pay, if you work nights you will stay on nights 3 years or more. Schedules/shifts change monthly. Management is night/day difference from am to pm. 3rd shift is literally forgotten about all depts. Lottery system just to take off days. The list goes on..

    Pros

    Leader of the sour cream industry.

    Cons

    There is no communication of objectives, goals or results.
    Major disconnect between leadership and plant in all aspects.
    Disappointing company culture with no regard for a work/life balance.
    Very large ego's in upper management and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage input and involvement from employees...they also have ideas.
    Plant manager communications or general business updates.
    Need more involvement and appearance of HR within the plant.
    Spark motivation and offer people incentives, the culture is in despair.

    Not much room for advancement. Poor communication with management. Work/life balance is not good if you work second or third shift, you always have to stay late.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good and the 401k and profit sharing is good. The pay is above average.

    Cons

    The managers are micro managers. No concept of FLEX time. Even after all night deployments they still expect everyone in the office @ 8 am. No opportunity for advancement. They run off employees after 1-2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to new hires. Stop telling them there is "lots of opportunity for advancement" when there is none.

    Pros

    Traditional fourth generation company with good quality products that have great potential to lead the category.

    Cons

    Formal business dress means wearing ties in corporate office; management fearful of change or even reviewing new ideas. Extensive testing for new employee prospects. Lack of mentoring and standard on boarding for new employees. Managers lack communication skills.

    Advice to Management

    Extensive writing of weekly logs are excessive.
