Good 401k, but not much else.

I have been working at Darigold

Pros

401k, and just typing some words to meet the five word minimum.

Cons

Upper management is in a constant state of flux, so consistency, no accountability at the corporate level (but employees at the plant level are held accountable despite the lack of resources and leadership), no direction, no interest in paying competitive salaries.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find good people, treat them fairly, and pay them well enough... then maybe the good ones will stick around.

    Pros

    Lots of free milk and milk products.......big deal!

    Cons

    There are so many groups at this company which have massive issues. Supply chain is a perfect example. None of the employees have any personality and their desks are completely clean. Their leader lacks any people skills as do the rest of the group. I wish I could leave this place. I warn anyone who is thinking about joining this company....do not do it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The list is amazingly long......kinda like the book War and Peace

    Pros

    Free milk. WHOOPIE!!!

    401k match is excellent and the cafeteria is nice. The building is also beautiful (from last CEO).

    Cons

    Everyone blames the executives but the real problem is the Board of Directors. Board needs more truly independent members. The few they have are more concerned about collecting the paycheck for fitting in not solving problems. The company has lost a number of good people in the last few years (excluding the Ex-CFO who was an idiot). The company is artificially unprofitable because the owners take all the money in their milk check. This is done so they don't have to pay bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your good leave if not stay
