Overall good place to work with strong mid-level employees

I worked at Hillshire Brands full-time for more than 8 years

ProsCompany was acting on its weakness by slimming corporate overhead. Talented team.

ConsWeak leadership with lack of focus. Lack of coherent strategy and slimming down of businesses resulting in a commodity business with no brand and pricing power and product innovation.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to innovate quickly and become a product leader.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
