    Pros

    Owners care about people. Pay good wage, work hours are long but well compensated.

    Cons

    Avoid working in IT or any Domino Sugar production locations. narcissism and sociopathic behavior rules senior ranks, and money wasting, don’t care attitude is common.

    Advice to Management

    Need good people.

    Pros

    Benefits are good and good dedicated people.

    Cons

    Really bad IT leadership, no work life balance, hostile and toxic work environment.

    Advice to Management

    To the owners, they really need to seriously take control of their company and consider a new CIO that doesn't mistreat the employees.

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to learn the sugar industry with the largest sugarcane grower in the USA. Everything is done on a large scale and you quickly gain a lot of experience.

    Cons

    The hours and schedule required are challenging. Most days start before 6:30AM and some days wouldn't end until 10:00PM

    Advice to Management

    I would have stayed if I could have had a regular schedule. Some positions probably required 2 people where only one was available.
