    I have been working at Ghirardelli Chocolate

    Pros

    Delicious chocolate products, 3 weeks PTO, 401k match, central location in the bay area, good for commuting.

    Cons

    Extreme favor-tism of some employees, weak management, no communication within the company.

    Many employees leave the company after a few years -- repeated stress with little recognition. Employees that deliver no results are often promoted because they are politically strong. Results mean nothing - your political abilities are most important here. Other employees just check out and do the minimum. Every task is difficult to get done.

    Management will not communicate directly with employees with any meaningful information. In fact, they are visibly uncomfortable or try to hide information if asked. The management team is somewhat of a black hole - and they are very unfamiliar with their own business. They rely very heavily on junior employees to pull the weight of the company and justify every decision. Long term planning is not possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and forward with communication. Get involved int he work - don't just stand by and criticize.

    I worked at Ghirardelli Chocolate

    Pros

    Always able to have some chocolate if you want to. If you work in the marketing department, you likely will be promoted.

    Cons

    Upper management does not follow through with promises made. Many individuals do not take responsibility for their actions and try to place blame on someone/something else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should be just that, be more informative and follow through with what you say. Talk to your employees and and lead them in the direction you expect them to go.
