I had a very good experience at Sara Lee until the CEO decided to close down all of the outlets.

Pros

Big company with a lot of recognition. Will look good on resume when your division gets bought out.

Cons

Company has gone into a completely different direction. They are becoming a meat company and it really just seems like they are selling off everything one brand at a time. If you are looking into this company, it might not be long term.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not letting employees have a clue as to what you are doing was hard to take. If you are going to lay off a whole division, some notice would be nice.
