Pros

Great benefits: medical, dental, vacation. Good pay for the position relative to the same position in other companies. Hours are good.

Cons

Not much room for growing in the a laboratory or in the company unless you are willing to go back to school and get a graduate degree and even then I know some with an MBA that have been working in the same position for years.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are well above other employers in area.

    Cons

    Since announcing the closure of plants and consolidating to a new plant, the environment is dog eat dog. Only loyalty through the food group is to one self. It appears that management's terminating of employees is rewarded. The company disregards job experience for education. If you are not yes man, expect to have file being created to fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Firing employees prior to plant shut downs require training employees for short duration. This is does not seem to be a very cost effective investment.

    I've never been treated with such disrespect.

    Pros

    It is a large company with good stability. I was drawn to Simplot for the change to move up the corporate ladder and start a life long career.

    Cons

    Management is inept. While some people are promoted from inside the company, skill sets are not examined before the promotion. I was unfortunately placed in a department of people who did not respect their manager or co-workers. The training I received was half-assed. Senior management let middle management do whatever they pleased without any oversight. This eventually led to me leaving the company. I would suggest strongly researching the position your applying for. Simplot is an EXTREMELY corporate environment down to the tiniest detail with managers who should probably not be managers running the daily operations.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more active role in what middle management is doing. This would save time and money with training new employees. A lot of processes are redundant and an unneeded. Make sure the training is given in a thorough manner and not as if the trainer is in a race to finish.
