I have been working at Driscoll’s full-time

Pros

Rapidly growing organization, creating lots of opportunity for its people. Management is focused in the right areas and the business, while not without its challenges, is thriving. As a woman, very much so committed to equal opportunity. I've never felt deterred by my gender and have been rewarded "handsomely" for my contributions and hard work. Company values are strong and vision is exciting and motivating.

Cons

Rapid growth creates opportunities, but also can feel too fast (head spinning) at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing: you're focused in the right areas, even though execution isn't always perfect (never is). Empower your people to do more, holding them accountable for their own personal and professional growth.

    I have been working at Driscoll’s full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Started out as an intern and eventually transitioned into a full-time employee. It is hard to come by a corporation that truly cares about the well being of their employees. Everyone is extremely respectful and kind to one another and is readily willing to assist if needed. Employees are extremely passionate about what they do and are continuously seeking out ways to improve the way they do business.

    Cons

    This applies to temporary or part-time employees specifically- difficult to find permanent positions in certain departments. Driscoll's is unwilling to increase head count in order to retain qualified employees.

    Promotions within the company are also a weak point. Although there are many great opportunities available to develop laterally, a number of employees have been with Driscoll's for 5+ years with little to no vertical career growth.

    I have been working at Driscoll’s full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health care benefits, flex schedule, fitness classes, free snacks, interesting and challenging business issues. World class product and lots of market share. Passionate people who are the salt of the earth.

    Cons

    Favoritism is rampant within the company as the old employees and family members jockey for their slice of the pie on the backs of newer employees. Employee stock and plum assignments are given to the chosen few who are polished with the senior leaders but often lack substance and actual leadership ability for a company this complex. Pay for performance doesn't exist. Many in key leadership roles are in over their heads as the company growth has outpaced the talent in place, many employees frustrated in bringing about the changes actually needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the board rooms and roll up your sleeves, listen to the various work teams (talent mgmt., marketing, supply chain etc.), and folks who actually do the work of bring this company forward. Many team members do not create value but are promoted beyond their capabilities compared to other companies. Directors and VP's with little experience running a business of this size and/or created individual value other than highlighting the work others have accomplished. When it comes to company values walk the talk!
