    Great history, but senior leadership not poised to sustain growth or reputation

    I have been working at Hormel

    Pros

    Stable company
    Conservative financials with virtually no debt
    Good customer relationships
    Strong execution mentality
    Familiar brands
    Good people overall
    Good responsibility record

    Cons

    HR has hamstrung the organization and lacks the talent to position the company for a changing business environment
    Senior leadership team is a mixed bag of accidental appointments. Many would not have the qualifications to apply for their job in a peer company.
    Talks about innovation but does not deliver.
    Company says it respects the individual, then promotes bullies.
    Underperforming employees are allowed to stay in positions for years or are repeatedly transferred to other departments with the same results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the walk. Even those of us with shorter tenure see the inconsistency between words and action.
    Leadership seems to have consensus for everything, which means nothing move forward.
    Seniority with the company just means people carry favorites and grudges with them for years.
    What worked in the past is not going to work in the future. Fear that the "glory days" for the company will be in the rear view mirror with this senior level executive leadership.

    I have been working at Hormel

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, good benefits, many opportunities for advancement, excellent sales training, promote from within

    Cons

    They do not always promote the best person for the job. Hormel is very focused on promoting women and minorities into management currently, which I believe is much needed as upper management is almost all white males, however, the best person for the job should be promoted and that hasn't always been the case in recent years. Also, Hormel tends to keep around employees, even if it is clear to everyone that the employee is not meeting the minimum job requirements, which can be very frustrating to management and co-workers who are impacted by the inadequate employees.
