I worked at Smithfield Foods

Pros

If you can bring yourself to kiss the boss's butt you can advance and do pretty well. If you can't you
end up like me! See above.

Cons

Long hours, Cold damp environment, low wages.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees as the assets they are. Don't just use them and throw them away.
