Pros

Very laid back culture. All the people are easy going and very helpful. Overall, the people do not see work as their first priority, so there is a good life/work balance.

Cons

Almost impossible to advance your career path into senior management unless someone dies or you work with the company for 50 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better organization. There is massive division within the internship program. Interaction between interns is very rare, so it is hard to gauge how the others are performing.

    Pros

    A consistent work schedule. Ability to increase pay with more sales. Great benefits- pension, sharepower options, medical, dental, vision, short and long term disability, many other added benefits. Light weight work compared to other vendor jobs in similar food retail. We are the leader in snack foods and that creates the sense of pride in the company that we are number 1.

    Cons

    no sick time off without a financial penalty. in other words, if you are out sick you receive $80 per day. For most, this is about 50% of the normal income for that day. Demanding sales plans/goals. Sometimes its impossible to achieve their expectations in regards to sales. They expect double digit growth when they know the economy is in a recession. Mandatory or mandated account layouts and promotions give very little room for creativity. The company has too much dead weight and too many people who collect a paycheck and barely justify why they're employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend more time in the market and less time in the office. Every so often, they should run with a lower level employee to get a better understanding. Be realistic when touring the market. A holiday drop of 4 times or more of a weekly sales average just to show off a store to upper management doesn't make much sense.

    Pros

    Top notch Brands, Speed to Execution, Compensation, Leadership visibility, Diversity focus, Exposure to Sr. Management, Company Equity/Image and Facility.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a joke, too many priorities that change constantly.
    COmpany growth was phenomenal in last 5 years which created a huge neglect for processes, structures and approach. Integration between other units hasn't happened even after 5 years which puts lot of pressure internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on HR leadership so they can put critical processes in place (training, etc.)
    Reduce number of priorities.
    Create better integration across key functional areas.
    Simplify the organization structure.
