Pros

Hormel is a successful company that is small enough to move around into different fields, and to make your successes seen by upper/executive management. Once you get involved in the culture it is hard to get out, and that's a good thing if you see yourself there for the long run.

Cons

The opportunities are not always in desirable locations. The company could also use some improvement in the diversity of its professional employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is headed in the right direction and is a great place to work with multiple opportunities that are available.

    I worked at Hormel

    Pros

    Hormel is a great company. 50% of the company stock is owned by a charitable organization (Hormel Foundation). They have a long range focus. Not next quarter.

    Cons

    Hormel promotes from within, but will force you to relocate. If Hormel purchases a new company, then future managers will be transfered from within Hormel and into the new acquisition. Employees from within the acquisition are rarely promoted (why I left).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Again, this is a great company. They have a long range focus. They are stable. They believe in safety, training, and decent pay. People are generally friendly, hard working, and intelligent. Senior managers also take the time to talk to the troops and let people know what is going on in the company. The CEO even goes aound once a year to most locations to shake hands and thanks people.
