I have been working at JR Simplot

Pros

Pay and benefits are competitive for the area. The company is very proactive with respect to systems and technology, especially for the industry they are in.

Cons

Succession planning and career mapping are virtually non-existent. The company frequently hires at all levels from outside and rarely promotes from within. Politics run extremely deep and hinder the company from capitalizing on the systems and infrastructure that exists.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promotion must come from within if the company wishes to start succeeding due to its talent and not to market-driven circumstances. Succession planning needs to actually be implemented, not just talked about.

    I have been working at JR Simplot full-time (less than an year)

    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.
