    Neither hot nor cold. Not sure if I should spew.

    I have been working at Bolthouse Farms full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There's some great people to work with here. A lot of people with great visions. This seems to be a recurring theme with Bolthouse, but it's absolutely right on.

    Cons

    Company values and mission for most employees is not clear or even relevant to their positions. Clear and realistic goal setting has been a problem. This year I was asked to hand in a self evaluation based on my goals, I had none. I then made my own for the next year because it's doubtful management will give me any.

    There's a sensation of "get'er done (FAST)" which can be facilitated by advances in technology. It's like running downhill, easy at first, but if not careful, the slightest trip could be fatal. Personally, I think slow, plan slower, and have easy and lasting execution. The things they whip out too fast seems to just be redone later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the business back to basics, the essentials to facilitate creation of a lasting and consistent product. Rethink the mission statement so that no matter where someone is on the totem pole, it makes sense. The mission statement should also indicate how we know we've succeeded in our mission.

    A fantastic job for being straight out of college. Learn as much as you can in a year or two and move on.

    Pros

    Great job for self-motivated individuals!

    Cons

    Upper management could use an intensive HR course on how to manage employees and what is and is not proper when running a business.
