Pros

Okay if you like a slow moving environment. Pay is average and benefits are good, especially health.

Cons

Management has hidden agendas and change their minds often after making decisions. Career advancement determined primarily by tenure and politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more upfront about direction of the company.

    I worked at McCormick & Company

    Pros

    People always need food, and in economic downturns, they cook more - the company seems pretty stable. The people are very friendly, the company cares about employees, and is well-managed. You can get lots of positive feedback, even from upper management, if you do a good job and stand out. They have acquired quite few brands since I worked there, which seems like a good sign, but I don't know how the integrations went.

    Cons

    The food industry can be a bit old-fashioned and McCormick is not a marketing or innovation leader. Company culture is somewhat conservative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value innovation, creativity, and intelligence.

    I have been working at McCormick & Company

    Pros

    It is a very people oriented company that offers many opportunities. Succession planning is a high priority within the organization and executives are typically promoted from within. There are many employee oriented events which employees can participate in and it is very family oriented. Everyone is very committed to the company, which leads to some people working on vacations, etc, which becomes expected of others. Depending on the division you work in, there are typically great advancement opportunities. It is a fair company that generally treats their employees well. I have been here more than 9 years and would highly recommend this company.

    Cons

    Everyone has been here for a very long time (Average service: 14.5 years) and are stuck in their ways. Dedication and commitment along with corporate red tape is somtimes over the top. It is good to have processes and procedures in place, but let's be realistic about it sometimes. It hampers productivity. It can be really hard to move up the chain especially if you haven't been here long. Seniority has a lot to do with service and not necessarily performance. People company, but some events that has been long traditions are being eliminated and more is expected from everyone every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!!
