I worked at Maple Leaf Foods

Pros

-Competitive salary
-Good general management experience
-Opportunity to meet and work with some great people (eg. Product Development team)

Cons

-Too much structural change
-Few opportunities for employee career progression
-Overall pessimistic mood about company's future
-Extremely process oriented, focus is on doing things the way they have always been done
-Slow to react to changes in market

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Try to create some stability within the company
-Focus on long term growth, not quick fixes
-Hiring talent from Tier 1 CPG firms is a great idea only if you allow them to bring in a fresh perspective and make a positive change, rather than expecting them to adapt to the MLF process-oriented way of doing things.
