ProsBasic 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThere 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
