Too many changes in the wrong direction.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Torrance, CA

ProsNot much debt. I guess that's good.
Still small enough that it's not a large beauracracy filled with red tape. Since Sara Lee acquisition it's had a huge decline in the marketplace.

ConsPoor communication from senior management. Sara Lee acquisition has introduced weak managers from Sara Lee that have hurt Farmer Brother's reputation in the industry. Now losing customers due to poor operational support, out of stocks, pricing problems, etc. Executive managers out of touch with problems in the field due to minimization by ex-Sara Lee managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out and see the damage being done to Farmer Brother's customer base. Improve communications to your employees and recognize the poor management and direction coming from the ex-Sara Lee employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
