Pros

Solid company with a long history of profits.
Have gotten raises every year of employment
Profit sharing is pretty good
Annual bonus' are nice (remember this is very rare for a lot of employers)

Cons

Some of the new management seem to think that they can "change the world" but they don't take into fact that the company has done very well with the existing management. I'm not saying there aren't better ways of doing things but just because that's the way it was done at "X" doesn't mean it is right for Leprino.

Two other things that needs to be addresses are 1. Current employees that get a promotion should be paid at the same level of those they would hire off the street. Currently if a good employee is promoted they are paid far less then if the same position is filled by a new employee. They take advantage of the fact that the current employee is getting a decent raise anyway. 2. Managers are given too much freedom when hiring. No real checks in place. Example, a manager hired their best friend to work for them. The person isn't qualified for the position but the manager was able to play the system and get the person in. Didn't interview anyone else and disregarded a couple of referrals that were given.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent with what is going on in the company. Employees always hear things because someone always talks. Isn't it better to hear it from the horses mouth versus the grapevine?

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. You work for an unknown large company that dominates it's market share.

    Cons

    Had to leave as stress of no work/life balance was literally killing me. My BP soared while there while owners became even bigger billionaires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about a 40 hour work week. People only live once and would like to have some balance. Getting rich off the back breaking work of others is greedy.
