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.

    I have been working at Basic American Foods

    Pros

    The benefits from profit sharing are usually excellent. In the past this company has been very focused on the employee and that had a culture of everyone being a member of the BAF family.

    Cons

    Privately held company that doesn't have anyone in the family wanting to take the business on for the future. The feeling of family and the overall culture has deteriorated. Small things, celebrations, recognitions, and honesty have diminished to almost nothingness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make certain you are looking at the way you are doing staff cuts. You have already lost a lof of senior level people and that is having a major impact on the overall interest of the company. There has not been much knowledge transfer to a younger management team and this is a problem.
