Wonderful employees, great legacy breads, HORRIBLE management with no concept of marketing.

Pros

Great place to start a career, learn about cutting edge technology (although poorly executed)

Cons

The worst healthcare coverage that was expensive, extremely HOT manufacturing environment (employee comfort of no concern to management/too cheap to install exhaust fans). No concern for employee safety (see Garner, NC). Can't move up without managers approval, and with constant turnover, managers are more concerned about keeping status quo. Work 12-16 hour days 6-7 days per week with no additional compensation. Below average pay.

Advice to Management

Hire directors and VP's that understand operations and marketing, then put them to work!

    Pros

    Loads of opportunities for talented and driven individuals.

    Cons

    I wish I would have started this journey sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Re-organize some of the hourly pay structures, shifting toward pay-for-performance.


  2. Great first years but became rather toxic later.

    Pros

    More dynamic in regards to I.T than you'd expect for a big established blue chip type company. You were encouraged and supported to 'be bold'. Senior management recognized that employees individually and as groups must be permitted to innovate. This started to fall apart later as things became more and more politically contaminated.

    Cons

    Quite top heavy in the middle layers of management and all paths and definitions of success were defined by how fast you made it into management. This stifles technical excellence and created weird situations where one person might report to 3 same level managers.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce management by about one third in all layers and foster self organizing teams that can exert their maximum energy toward building competitive products and running lean projects through quickly. Share the rewards at all levels and not just to those that made it to management.
