Pros

Decent pay and benefits. Room to move up if you are willing to play the games.

Cons

Bad management with questionable ethics and business practices. Micromanagement is the tool of choice and is used without reserve.

Advice to Management

You don't know it all and you should quit pretending that you are not the problem. High turn-over is not a sign that you are doing a good job.

    Pros

    Located in a beautiful area of the Yakima Valley within driving distance of nice wineries and also within a decent driving distance to Chinook Pass and Mt. Rainier.

    Cons

    Big disparity in income gap. Thread bear middle class between high income and working poor. Housing is more expensive than in like communities in other similar US farming locations. Organizationally speaking, YVFWC seemed disorganized and their expectations for this demographic area are unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    They need to update their criteria with regards to education vs experience as well as past achievements. The archaic theology that a degree equals ability is long pasts its prime and current studies confirm past achievements coupled with special skill sets are a better indicator of possible future performance. Mandating a degree for non - management roles inhibits current employees from seeking growth opportunities within the organization and lends higher propensity to attrition. Most companies now look at past achievements, experience and special subject matter expertise along with educational achievements in order to diversify their workforce skill sets and provide a stronger overall talent base within the organization. The commonly held education to experience ratio is currently 2-3 years experience in skill set specific criteria to 1 year of college coursework.
