Pros

The managment at Hormel truly care about the success of their employees. There is great opportunity to grow within the organization making promotions common and expected. Coming out of college the salary is competitive. Overall enjoyable place to work.

Cons

Relocation is a necessity. Vacation is very limited (10 days for the first 3 years). The company is the opposite of progressive which can be very frustrating for young talent and even our customers. The corporate offices are in Austin MN, this embodies the small town feel of the company and is probably the foundation of many issues within the company culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A lot of people are leaving the company, simple changes could be made to prevent this .

    Big corporation operating in a tiny town - a condition which sprouts big egos

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for salaried employees, but you will work so many hours you won't get to enjoy your money.

    Cons

    Big pressure to work super-long hours, butt-kissing is the best route to take for promotions. Old-boy network alive and well here. If you're not at work by 6AM every day, you're a slacker!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and realize that work might not be THE most important thing in everyone's life. Staff positions enough so one person doesn't have to do the work that 2 or 3 should be doing.

    Pros

    Fantastic portfolio of products and commitment to excellent products. The can do attitude of the employees is truly exceptional and exciting to be a part of.

    Cons

    Unwillingness to adopt more current people management practices in regard to time off, work-life balance, and telecommuting. Salaries do not seem to be as competitive either.
