Pros

Benefits package, Hours, culture, access to discounted store. Basically, if you favor culture and values over salary then Goya is right for you.

Cons

Many employees claim to be extremely underpaid. Advancement opportunities seem to be based highly on favoritism first then qualifications.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your ratio of benefits/salary are effective in terms of profit but at a price of unsatisfied employees. No problem for most.

    Pros

    First of all, Goya is a company that's very family oriented and takes care of its own. it's a great environment to work in because of the way everyone interacts. It really feels like you're at home with your family. Even in these times of hardship, you know that your job is secure and that's a great thing to have, specially for those with family. This is a company that goes above and beyon the call of duty to ensure its employees are happy. We have an open door policy and it's very conforting for everyone . Overall, I'm very happy to work for Goya.

    Cons

    salary for the most part is lower than most companies, but if you speak up they will listen to you

    Pros

    I personally think Goya is not your typical corporation, yes, people do work very hard, but the work environment/culture is one where they try to make you feel as if you are part of a big family (hence their saying, “La Gran Familia Goya”). You get to meet the owners, they greet you in the hallway and I pretty much think they know everyone by name. From my experience management is fair, so if you don’t want to work or want to violate reasonable rules, I guess you don’t need the job… The company is growing so quickly and there are opportunities for growth. Salary is competitive for the area, benefits are good in comparison with other jobs I’ve had. Many of their current employees have been there for 5 to 50 years, which I think says something about the company, I was there from 2005-2013 and unfortunately I had to move but if possible in the future I would like to return when I am ready. Hope this helps

    Cons

    Not many facilities in Europe
