Pros

Large company with small company feel. As processes and roles are continuously changing, you have a lot of input to develop your role. Overall, good people to learn and grow with.

Cons

HR is still developing - so career pathing isn't as good as it could be. If you know where you want to be in 5-10 years, it may be hard to get there. There isn't true career pathing - you have to create your own path and hope that positions open up for you to get there.

Advice to Management

Like where the company is going - just need to understand where the top performers want to be in order to retain them through the transition.

    Pros

    Del Monte has great brands and good products and you can't beat having the headquarter located at San Francisco city which is vibrant and fun. There are also lots of good employees who care about the success of the company.

    Cons

    Company is going through transitions and cost control is not in the center stage of the process. There are excessive overheads and unbalance workloads in many departments causing morale issues.

    Advice to Management

    Happy and productive employees drive the success of a company. There are departments that are under staff but there are departments with people idling. As management is looking at aligning and building the business, they should look at how to staff the department to support the business. I like to think it's in the work.
