    I have been working at Snyder's-Lance

    Pros

    Products, Lance history, charlotte location

    Cons

    Environment and lack of business ethics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Snyder's leaders are challenged with ethics. Merger of equals is a farce. Lance acquisition was met with hostility, Lack of vision and communication is creating havoc, which is apparent in recent results. Suspect this will end badly. 3 years is the best they can do for long term vision. Was at one time a good place to work.

    Dave spent years upgrading talent and image in the organization and sold out in 2010 to achieve personal and crony monetary goals. Singer and his cronies are counting their money as they continue to allow the Snyder's cowboys to run the organization in the ground. Degrade in talent and ethics is shocking. Senior leaders exiting were turn around agents since 2005, now they are "over qualified". Current mantra is "we don't need that level of talent". All functions are moving to Hanover, PA. Charlotte HDQ will be eliminated in 2012.

    I worked at Snyder's-Lance

    Pros

    The Charlotte Plant is awesome and a well oiled machine with great leadership
    The Charlotte Plant has a positive atmosphere

    Cons

    Columbus leadership is clueless about how to treat employess
    If Leadership by Fear and threats is your style, Columbus is the place for you.
    There is no work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money on the plant, stop all production for a weekend each month to allow for maintenance, sanitation and inventory to be done. It is unbelievable that Corporate leadership has not asked the hard questions, and looked into the reason both leadership and workers have been leaving the Columbus plant in large numbers over the past couple of months.
