Production lines are poorly utilized and even more poorly scheduled

I have been working at McCormick & Company full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great employees, on or above board pay and benefits, good work environment, the rank and file really treat people very well and are incredibly helpful

Cons

Management is disconnected from reality. Manufacturing operations would collapse without forced overtime. This is actually a 24/7 operation that is pitched to employees as a 24/5 operation, just be honest and do it right. Production stops for meetings, meetings, meetings, and more meetings. Huge emphasis on corporate politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out on the shop floor. Listen to your employees, don't just provide lip service. Stop abusing the workforce more than you abuse the equipment. Say what you do, do what you say, your credibility is grossly suffering.
