Great people to work with. Should be stable, but management tried to hard to turn it into a CPG.

I worked at Dean Foods

ProsGreat people. Fair compensation. Interesting business once you learn it. Opportunity to learn about both a branded business and a private label business at same time.

ConsLack of clear vision from management. If you are aligned with corporate or FDD the bonus structure is unfair compared to being aligned to a specific business unit.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop over hiring. Dean makes the same number of gallons a year, you don't need consultants and new departments to do what was done before with less people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
