    Problems are not fixed they are blamed on people.

    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods

    Pros

    Hard hot work, it is like getting paid to work out. I lost 50 pounds in one year.

    Cons

    A culture of blame. If a problem occurs the way to fix it at Maple Leaf is to blame it on one person, rather than find a way to keep that problem from happening once more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to prevent mistakes by changing operating procedures. Stop blaming people for mistakes, and use the mistakes as opportunities to fix a problem in production. I saw the same mistakes occur on all seven production lines over and over during my year. No changes in operating procedures ever occurred, but many employees were blamed for the recurring mistakes.
    Also senior management at the Roanoke Plant did not live up to the companies core values.

    I have been working at Maple Leaf Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large company with opportunity to grow. Some very good teams and leaders. The benefits are quite good with good health and RSP matching.

    Cons

    Sometimes the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. The departments are very disjoint. There is different rules for different locations throughout Canada.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider all the ramifications of your decisions - people, software, equipment. Sometimes decisions seem to be made on a whim and the results cause more issues than they solve.
