    I worked at Big Heart Pet Brands full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of good people at the lower levels and middle management. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Executive level and upper management do not seem to care about the associates, the state of morale, or anything other than the bottom line. Poor culture with a lot of "clicks". If you aren't part of that group, you are left out of everything. The Executive level either approves of this or are completely oblivious to the culture. Decisions seem to be made in haste without thinking through the impact to the business, again with the focus on nothing but the bottom line. No real opportunities to advance within the company, especially within IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in your people at all levels. You have a lot of intelligent and experienced employees. Change the culture back. This company used to be great to work for. There was a lot of pride from within. Very sad that things have taken a drastic change the last few years.

    I worked at Big Heart Pet Brands full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This was not a stressful environment. Come in do you work, and leave. The people that work there are great. The location was really good too.

    Cons

    Dont pay very well until you reach a certain position. Higher level people are taken care of. No real chance for advancement unless you are a "chosen" one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are really good people that work for this company, promote within.
