Pros

Stability - It is important to provide good wholesome milk to our community. Dean Foods is committed to a great product bringing safety first to their employees.

Cons

Dean Foods was an acquisition company. As they purchased dairy after dairy they hired people outside the company. ( Consultants ). Many people came from Pepsi. For those already with the company there has been no chance of moving up in the organization.

Advice to Management

Look at regional brands and fully enhance your trademarks to their full potential. Look internally for talent. Experience is valuable and milk being a commodity is not like soda.

    Pros

    their are not any. pay is under your abilities, terrible scheduling, and they do not care if you have a family, or if you ever get to spend time with them.

    Cons

    the people placed in management could not care less about their employees.


  2. Strong ground team, Exec management struggling with balance between Wall Street and it's own people/products.

    Pros

    Management teams at the dairies have amazing work ethics and clearly take great pride in their brands and products.

    Cons

    Executive Management is still trying to figure out its focus, which too often is what Wall Street's reaction, rather than the impact on products or people.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that long term solutions and vision will ultimately benefit the organization more than short term fixes.
