Pros

Positive work / life balance can be acheived, not a combative or highly competitive workplace.

Cons

At times can be too collaboritive - driving gridlock, Veteran workforce and culture that is not readily open to change.

    I have been working at Basic American Foods

    Pros

    Good compensation at Basic American Foods
    Good promotional opportunities at Basic American Foods
    Several employees have been at Basic for a long time.

    Cons

    Too many reorganizaitons at Basic American Foods and the amount of work that was expected to be picked up by employees that stayed on was ludicrous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The continual purchasing of outside companies does not appear to be successful for the organizaiton. Perhaps that strategy should be reconsidered.

    I worked at Basic American Foods

    Pros

    Basic American Foods is one of the major employers in the area. They have GREAT benefits and good pay. They are a good community partner. Besides providing jobs in the area, the provide a market place for the farmer's commodities.

    Cons

    Recognition of contributions is minimal. Little to no advancement opportunities. Workers loose their enthusiasm & drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a group of Senior management that is more concerned about protecting THEIR jobs than providing a REAL contribution to the over-all company. They point fingers and make lay-offs sound like good solutions, while causing serious efficiency problems due to poor management. THEY are the group that reports to the top management, so Top management never sees the real picture.
