    I have been working at Western Growers as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I've been working at Western Growers for almost 6 months and have been impressed with my experience so far. The company culture is great; good work/life balance. Western Growers believes in their products and works to attract great people to the organization. It’s a growing company with many opportunities to be promoted within and recognized for your hard work and achievements. Employees work very hard but it is a fun and exciting environment to be a part of. Management is there for you every step of the way, they're accessible, and want to see employees succeed by providing coaching and helping you with anything you may need. My team is motivated, fun, and always supportive; I’ve learned a lot from them.

    Cons

    I haven't experienced anything negative at Western Growers.

    Working there made me brain dead with boredom and no chance of advancement.

    I worked at Western Growers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is that it was close to where I was living at the time

    Cons

    Salaries are below average and at review time one is lucky to get an increase of a measly quarter.
    Some of the department heads take no interest in the daily activities and would rather hide away in their offices ignoring everything and everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through on promises of advancement . Laying off your employees of 40 yrs and older can hopefully get you in trouble one day. Very smart of you to make the employees being laid off sign a waiver that
    will not involve legal action or they forfeit their paid time off and other accrued finances.
