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

Pros

The values do mean something in this company. Strong brands and strong position in the industry. People are held accountable for their work. Work-life balance is okay.

Cons

Compensation is below average. The company has been undergoing many changes with plant closures and implementation of new systems. Seems very disorganized. Avoid this company for a few years until things settle down. New hires in corporate positions may not get adequate training. Top heavy with management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve training.

    Pros

    no pros other than a weekly paycheck

    Cons

    Very cold, fast paced environment. Employees treated like second class citizens. And management very top heavy. Supervisors are just as overworked as the production workers and only taking orders from upper management. Lots of finger pointing and blame but never any positive recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers and instead of blaming people, make some changes

    Pros

    You're given a lot of autonomy in decision making and many opportunities for learning.

    Cons

    Most middle management is too busy to focus on employee development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more support for middle management so they can focus on supporting staff at the front line.
