Pros

Some very nice people in some departments, decent pay to start, decent healthcare, they pay for training

Cons

Overall bad attitude and end of the world view from management, lack of leadership and cooperation, overbearing corporate culture, stigma of the former Farmland Industries fiasco does not help with local relations in Kansas City. They tend to hire people with no personality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your people, this is the food industry act like its the 21st Century, update your equipment and facilities.

    I have been working at Farmland Foods full-time

    Pros

    Farmland Foods emerged from Farmland Industries and had a fantastic corporate culture, a great employee morale, and was self aware of process issues and identified ways to move forward. There was no better place to be.

    Cons

    During the last 2 years it has de-volved, it is an environment of fear and blame - creating a paranoid and overworked workforce who fear making mistakes -and therefore - take no rises. It is a sad, mediocre place. There is no direction from the top, nor the middle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve workforce in suggestions and implementation of process and perhaps even some philisophical corporate changes. Remember that the Customer is more important than the road blocks you are putting up to prevent them from getting your products.

    Pros

    Meeting New people is allways a must and there are alot of new people that work for this company,
    The smiles and work surroundings kept everyone in a happy place. There was alot of good humor to keep everyone moving.

    Cons

    Long hours, and got pushed alot to get the jobs done. Some supervisors Had swollen heads and Treated some people Wrongly. Shortly after they were dismissed and It worked out.
    Sometimes it was very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the day shift finish their work and not push it onto the ones that work the night shift so that they are so bogged down with work that they have to stay late to finish their job.
