    I worked at Farmland Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
