I worked at Hillshire Brands full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The work environment is inclusive and respectful of individuals. The salaries at a headquarters level comfortable. There is a never-ending quest to do it better.

Cons

Millions of dollars are wasted by moving offices every five or ten years. With all the strengths I saw, this disrespect of raw dollars spent was frustrating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop following trends and start setting them. Don't worry about what the cool kids are doing; when you have a tremendous work force, you should allow them to focus on the work.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Weak 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 ManagementAdvice

    Need to innovate quickly and become a product leader.
