I worked at McCormick & Company

Pros

Stable food industry company;
Good broad career training with their Multiple Management Board.
Free samples & cheap/discounted products @ company store
Free health & wellness screenings

Cons

Slow in processes; Too highly conservative in approaches; Slow to change
Slow career advancement
Finance dominated culture (if not in finance org)
Poor vocation specific training support

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to bring in more outside blood, especially middle management people in areas beside US Consumer Marketing & Sales. Shared Services organizations needs to be reviewed and revised. These organizations are holding McCormick back.

    I have been working at McCormick & Company

    Pros

    Week off after Christmas. The older employees are wonderful but the newer people are cut throat and nasty.

    Cons

    Management has hidden agendas and change their minds often after making decisions. Career advancement determined primarily by politics. It is a "Yes Sir" company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some respect for the people you hire to make sound decisions.
