I worked at Darigold full-time (less than a year)

Pros

great benefits and decent pay

Cons

long ridiculous hours 15 hours plus sometimes with little to no breaks (not even sure that is legal in a right to work state) disrespectful lieing management. call people in on their days off or never let them take their vacation when they ask. stay away from this company there is a reason they only have a 2 star rating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

treat your employees like humans instead of cattle

    I worked at Darigold full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    401k match is very good and free milk in the kitchen is nice

    Cons

    I have worked there more than 10 years and now i am gone. It is a very depressing place. No one talks to each other.....people are scared they will get fired. I got high blood pressure from working there. My #1 recommendation is if you are considering working at Darigold, stop and move on or else you will be sorry. I wasted my life there, don't make the same mistake!!!

    I worked at Darigold full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of many. It is a very cool office building but it is my understanding it was the last management team that made the decision. Can't see this group of management or the board of directors agreeing to something this nice ever again. I sure hope the lease is very long for the remaining and future employees. It is in a very bad neighborhood.

    Cons

    Culture, culture, culture. We actually had meetings about how some posts on Glassdoor were bad for the company and employees were encouraged to write positive comments on the website. It is rumored that many of the very positive posts about Darigold were written by the higher ups in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been gone from the company for about 4 months and looking back I tried to make the best of Darigold but I was lying to myself. It is DEFINITELY the WORST place I've ever worked. I worked in the CFO's group (Finance/IT/Treasury) and it was the most juvenile environment you can ever image. The leader of IT is a yes man. The new leader of Finance tells the CFO everything and is willing to do anything to impress him. The CFO knows the words to say but his actions are he wants to be loved. Avoids conflict and allows peers and his team to functions very poorly. The group is what I image the work environment to be for my grandfather but worse in that there is a lot of words of how they are developing employees and improving the profitability of the company but there is no intention to accomplish this. Now that I'm away all I can say is you make my current work environment look AWESOME. Must give some thanks for that as I will always have Darigold as a reference of how bad it can be and be thankful for my current job.
