I worked at Dole Food

Pros

The people are very professional, motivated, and well managed. It seemed that the executive and management team had the experience and charisma to properly lead by example.

Cons

The department I worked in was very lean and short staffed, so I was not allowed to take any time off the first year. That fact, along with the long hours and periodic micro management, did not instill confidence that my superiors would reward my hard work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Having a better work life balance will increase employees' work productivity, and their retention rate. Overall, giving a little more freedom will empower people to work more efficiently.

    I have been working at Dole Food full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is all about great quality food and sustainability. The people I worked with were great.

    Cons

    The owner, David Murdock is well past his prime, yet he doesn't seem to know it or what to believe it. He's sends the management team and ultimately the staff on one chase after another instead of allow the company to do what it does best and that is to focus on great products and improving efficiency of all related processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage Murdock to retire. Get DeLorenzo back!
