    Pros

    A lot of access to a lot of great tools and systems. The culture as Sara Lee was wonderful, especially under the CEO Brenda Barnes. It was a work hard, play hard environment and we all worked hard. When she resigned, things went down hill.

    Cons

    It's a popularity contest to get where you need to go. In some departments, if you were a women..forget about being respected.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. Take some people skills courses.


  2. Good while it lasted

    Pros

    Above average compensation
    Good benefits

    I worked for the company for 10 years until I was laid off. I hold no ill will against them, but I wasn't offered any other positions in the organization...I was just let go.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement, they like to hire from outside the organization

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. I personally witness the loss of a lot of strong talent due to lay offs and downsizing measures.
