    I worked at Hormel full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Continues to inovate with successful new product launches.
    Great training when you come onboard.
    Logistics, product quality, and policies are consistent.
    Great Area Managers that are knowledgable and resourceful.
    Marketing provides great materials to help you sell.

    Cons

    Being asked to do more with less more and more.
    Must be ready to move. As soon as you don't you lose all support.
    Mid-management can be vindictive and withold promotions if you aren't willing to pick up and move to anywhere they want to send you.
    Mid management is out of touch with what is realistic and they apply standards nationwide with no regard for regional differences.
    They continue to rely, measure, and evaluate on quantity instead of quality of work activity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop ignoring the work life balance feedback given on surveys.
    Reduce the wait period to get a title change when given new responsibilities. It makes no sense. Twice the work with small increase after a 2+ year waiting period?
    Become much more progressive when it comes to using technology. It can increase efficiencies, reduce office time. Re-evaluate the changing industry. Does the current alignment and structure still make sense considering the changes?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees strengths and weaknesses and put them in a position to be successful. Develop and recruit more compassionate leaders. Run morale cripplers out of the company.
