Pros

Employees care about their jobs and each other. Definitely a "family" atmosphere. Pay is competitive and benefits are great. Business is well-managed and should consider to prosper.

Cons

Communication between departments can be poor at times. Some recent changes to senior management may turn out to be bad decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Avoid "silos" as the company continues to grow.

    Pros

    AgFirst puts a high value on its employees' lives by being as flexible and accommodating as possible. The people are unfailingly polite, and the environment feels more like a family than anything else. The benefits are also incredibly strong. Just the sheer amount of employees who have stuck around for 20 or even 30 years is amazing and a testament to the company.

    Cons

    The building has character but is a little outdated. Hopefully the new one will modernize things without making things overly bland.

    I have been working at AgFirst full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and in general a good culture where senior management shows genuine concern for and support for their employees. Company is very stable as well.

    Cons

    Some managers show extreme favoritism, while others show zero interest in the development of their employees. Long-standing social 'niches' make it very difficult for new employees and especially contractors to feel included.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate those in middle-management positions. Have a few employees held their positions for years while newbie's/contractors tend to come-and-go like a revolving door? Then you have a favortism issue. It's not difficult to spot, but only if you know to look.
