Pros

It is a great first step, with in IT there is no next step for me.
If you are in production or management this is a great place to get in the door.
They have a very good internal promotion program.
HR tries hard to promote a happy work place by offering health fairs and education opportunities.

Production managers empower plant floor people to make suggestions and improvements.

Cons

Communication is a challenge.
There is still a feeling of hidden agendas with in management.
Recent consolidation of divisions into Ralcorp is shaking everyones nerves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication is a key to growth. Being open and honest about our business and decisions is helpful.

    Pros

    Financially sound, well established company in an excellent line of business (private label foods) to be in especially during a medium to mild economic recession. Many people have switched to private label foods due to a high level of unemployment, and continually climbing gas prices, etc. Lots of oportunity for growth within Ralcorp due to constant changes and aquisitions by the company..

    Cons

    Major lacks of communications between the Corporate office and the divisional food manufacturing plants. Significant performance issues as a result of the communication issues. No clear direction from the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the multitude of high level managment teams in the divisions and corporate office down to a smaller number of individuals who actually add value to the business. Seek answers and solutions from the employees of the company that actually do the work and not from the protected Director level class of employees.
