I have been working at Chiquita Brands full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very unstructured environment operating within a very flat org structure. You are given plenty of freedom to make decisions. With the recent relocation to Charlotte, they are definitely in transition mode. Multiple people within Senior Management has been replaced or choose not to relocate, so there are many new people with new/fresh ideas. Management sets out a plan and they look for their teams to execute initiatives that enforce this plan. I've been able to learn a lot about a new industry which has helped broaden my overall business knowledge and work with some great people. Its definitely a different(and more positive) environment than some of the other large employers in town. The new CEO has put together a strong vision for the future, which should result in growth.

Cons

It can be tough is you are not accustomed to an unstructured environment. You have to figure a lot out on your own. Its a company in transition, so there are some growing pains.

Advice to Management

Stick to your plan to ensure growth. Don't forget to keep the employees happy.

    Benefits not much more I can say.

    Cons

    management has no clue what thy are doing or the true feelings of the employees; double standards is rampant; layoffs annually; cutting cost until there is nothing left to cut and then want employees to cut back more.

    Work in Silo's I do not report to my plant manager Boss is in another state so when I do need to speak with them they are often hard to get a hold of

    Need to look at getting rid of all Silo's and have the individual departments work for the plant manager's.
