Pros

It is a really, really great brand with a storied history. Lots of upside, but also a lot of turmoil.

Cons

Talent is all over the place. Some people wouldn't make it a day in larger companies. Makes for a harder job.

Advice to Management

Keep listening and really pushing the culture to get better. Could be a really great place if morale were better.

    Pros

    The location is convenient and it is one of the few CPG's in the area Historic brand High quality products

    Cons

    Employee morale is very low and people are very open about their dissatisfaction and lost motivation. Welch's is extremely political it often feels as though performance comes second to political acumen. People are evaluated on personality and political popularity rather than on job knowledge, performance, and results. People are afraid to take risks and challenge the status quo because there can be severe penalties for doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Welch's would be a better organization if you could find a way to minimize the politics. One way to start moving faster is to start pushing decision making authority down, rather than letting it live only at the senior levels.

    Pros

    Great brand name and one of the few CPG firms in Boston. Excellent location just outside of Concord allows for good commutes.

    Cons

    Poor leadership from VP levels, very political environment where politics count more than results. New CEO extremely hands on and working conditions are extremely demanding. Morale is poor and falling, much turnover and more layoffs expected. Company has trouble competing in many of the categories it sells in, against bigger, stronger brands with much larger budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Empower people, lose the politics, reduce role and power that HR has in day-to-day running of business, demand execution and results from Sales department.
