I have been working at Farmer Bros.

Pros

Not 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.

Cons

Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

Get 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.

    Pros

    It provides for a stable job.

    Cons

    No room for growth or advancement, dead end job. Currently the company is transitioning into a corporation which will hopefully change the atmosphere of this company. A lot of changes are currently underway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need vast communication skills and teamwork mind set, which is definitely lacking
