I worked at JR Simplot full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Supportive direct manager, good pay for the area, exciting and meaningful work

Cons

Mid-level management was continuously difficult to work with, limited opportunity for career growth despite corporate policies encouraging it. Problem employees were well entrenched and held power over other's careers in a very unprofessional way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch your mid level managers more closely, give employees a safe avenue to report inappropriate behavior,

    Pros

    To keep from starving to death.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, filthy, favoritism, nepotism, poor advancement opportunities, racism, cronyism, high injury rates, harassed for reporting injuries, fired while on leave for work injury surgery, said that I had met a 3 strikes termination policy but couldn't produce records of my three work violations. Young healthy people were constantly getting pneumonia from filthy bacteria infested, black mold encrusted factory at a food plant!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a soul.
