Great place to work, somewhat political - cliques do exist at the Director and above level, good pay for location.

I have been working at Ocean Spray

Pros

Very passionate employees, friendly colleagues, great CEO, rewarding to work for an agricultural cooperative, beautiful location/setting, good benefits, and long tenured employees.

Cons

Very lean organization, more work than can be accomplished, very little administrative support, risk adverse corporate culture, old school policies/procedures.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, hire more people to grow the business, take more risks, invest in developing your employees, update benefits/time away policies, don't let internal audit run employees out of the company.

    Decent company, but the culture is lacking

    Pros

    Ocean Spray is a beloved juice brand in the USA
    You work for cranberry farmers and are responsible for their livelihoods
    Lots of hands on learning experience, but you do end up doing the work of someone who would typically be higher up in another company.
    Most of the people are nice
    The pay seems reasonable, but could be higher based on comparative companies

    Cons

    It can be very political and beurocratic
    A lot of people that work at Ocean Spray have been there a long time, pros and cons with that
    The company culture can be somewhat old school and stodgy
    It's a really flat organization and they rotate you around alot - it can take a while to move up.
    Senior management and middle management really seem to be concerned with themselves and their own career paths and gaining political capital vs. empowering the people below them. You can end up feeling like a cog in the wheel, even though the company is mid-size.
    Managers are overworked and don't really have time to manage their people effectively

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They treat you with respect. They go the extra mile to make your job easier. The pay is above average for the area.

    Cons

    They expect a lot out of their employees. They don't let people slack off.
