I worked at Southern States as a contractor for more than 5 years

Pros

I like the philosophy of the company...it's a farmer's cooperative. I worked with many creative people who were team players. I was also given several opportunities to expand and grow with the business, as I worked in a few different positions while there.

Cons

While I was there they purchased other businesses and I think got in over their head. They then started selling them off and downsizing. I was let go as a result.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    No growth or development. You will not be promoted. There is no company culture. The company does not have even a company picnic. (There is one by the employee association, but you have be a member)
