Pros

Used to be a decent place to work. They had improved the talent pool over the past several years that should have made Lance more able to compete and grow profitably. Some of the new acquisitions had great potential.

Cons

Since the announcement of the merger (really more like an acquisition by Snyder of Lance), many good people either left on their own or were terminated. Interestingly, appears to only be Lance people and unfortunately most of them were very good. Almost seems like Snyder's felt threatened. Now the culture is such that no one is motivated and feel like they could be next. Also, I do not believe there will be as much synergy as others predict.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is no secret that top management got big fat bonuses for their part in the merger but obviously did not care about their ranks. Lance management should have watched out for their own employees instead of letting Snyder's be in charge. If you keep up with this the shallow talent pool will become a cesspool.
