I worked at Ghirardelli Chocolate part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I pleasantly enjoyed the exposure to different ethnic cultures all under one roof, you get a new sense of respect and understand for other's beliefs.

Cons

Micro management, excessive write ups, unionized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take some time out and show some appreciation to your employees!

    I have been working at Ghirardelli Chocolate full-time

    Pros

    There is chocolate every where! The parking lot smells like chocolate! The culture is supportive, they are making efforts to modernize and really invest in their people. Projects I've received have been challenging and rewarding! I like the feeling of a small to midsize company. It's much easier to feel connected and get to know your colleagues. You don't feel like one of many.

    Cons

    We are growing, so parking is an issue, and not a lot of choices for places to eat around San Leandro for lunch. The work environment is business casual, but with the direction most companies are headed, it would be nice if we could be less formal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are doing a lot to modernize our organization, and this is the direction we should keep heading.
