    Pros

    The on-site daycare is wonderful, I highly recommend it.
    Great bonus program, but not necessarily based on your own performance, but very generous most years.
    The hertiage and history of the company is celebrated annually, very well done.
    The Rich Family is very nice. Bob and Mindy Rich are very nice people.
    Very good parental leave benefits.
    A new, colorful, clean and inviting office/work environment
    Newly remodeled office area
    Most of the people are very nice
    Fair pay and compensation for the Buffalo, NY area
    Very good at allowing associates to be engaged in community service during work time, i.e. Meals on Wheels, etc.

    Cons

    Very political inside the company
     Quality of products is not always job #1
    Managers are not open to change.
    Many capital projects are not executed well, often the finances are done too late into the project
    Managers are out of touch with employees
    Not many managers are supportive of spending money on training employees, but they will spend tons on sending people to a fancy resort for an off-site meeting.
    Best practices from employees who come from other companies are not alway followed or welcomed when suggested.
    Many employees have only worked at Rich's and are not open to new ideas brought in from other companie.
    They are cheap in some areas but they spend and waste money in other areas of the company.
    Quality is not always number #1
    Hard working people are not promoted as much as those who are loyal to the company or their managers.
    Knowlege and experience are not as important as those who have a PhD, status, or make their boss look good.
    A lot of good people have left the company because of poor management.
    Located in a very bad neighborhood in the City of Buffalo
    A lot of good people have left because they were tired of management in some departments,
    promotions are had to come by in some departments due to poltics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be best in class, then train, promote, and invest in your employees like other food companies do.

    Pros

    It is a global company with a good heritage. They have good R&D, a daycare center on site, and a nice working environment. They consider themselves customer-focused and will go out of their way to make a customer feel at home. They pay well, and have a good bonus program. They allow employees to go part-time if they wish to.

    Cons

    Top layers of management are highly dysfunctional, and there is a lot of in-fighting that causes problems for employees. Employee surveys indicate a very high level of frustration and dissatisfaction, yet management refuses to believe it or do anything about it. Employess are rewarded for being "heros", not by performing at a consistant high level. This drives poor quality control and productivity. Top management likes to bring consultants in for every problem, not trusting his internal staff. Job advancement is extremely difficult to obtain in some areas. The company claims they are family oriented, but practices do not allow good work-life balance. Company loyalty is prized above performance - good performers are often fired because of this, which means the quality the staff suffers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace diversity and the ideas of those under you. Listen to those you bring in to correct problems. Reward the right behavior - look for the strong performers.
