    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for varied experiences. Very strong brand name and good compensation. Strong disciplined approach to analysing processes and performance. Great networking opportunities. Overall, good products and strong Corporate pride in the Company.

    Cons

    To some degree an 'old boys club' atmosphere, extremely long hours - your work can actually become your life. Often don't think things through to the end which can result in frustration and burn out. Top heavy management structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the top management - to help reduce overheads. Try to look behind the aura of individual 'star' employees and assess them objectively on an ongoing basis.

    Old boys club; too many people who have been there forever and are resistant to change; excessive politics; subjective performance appraisal based on popularity not results; poorchange management; disorganized execution; top heavy management
