Pros

Good pay, decent benefits, promotion opportunities if willing to relocate. Additional benefits beyond salary insurance (bonus, stock options, restricted stock units) can be lucrative, but obviously not guaranteed.

Cons

Poor communication about change, significant changes occurring for several years. Defined benefit pension plan recently frozen. 401k replacement not as good as previous pension - less likely to encourage employees to stay long term.

Advice to Management

Communicate better about upcoming changes, communicate better about action plans to achieve high level strategic objectives.

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits and training. There are some very experienced people who can teach new employees a lot about the food business.

    Cons

    This company is very "flavor of the week" and will change focus and direction on a dime. Shareholders are the prime focus to the detriment of employees. Employees are paying the price for failed initiatives and the company has made many cuts that make the job extremely difficult. Unqualified "yes men" who blame their employees for their own failures are promoted to the detriment of the company. Morale is in the basement at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and hold middle managers accountable.
