    Pros

    decent hours, decent pay regardless of college experience

    Cons

    Grupo Bimbo doesn't care about the quality of their product all the time

    The retail prices need to vary from region to region to reflect the socio-economic differences within states, between states etc.

    I have been working at Grupo Bimbo as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    None. Can't think of 1 thing honestly.

    Cons

    They try to pay their IO's less than their agreed upon percentages. They do not honor their own contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're paying IO's 18% gross. Don't try to pay them 7% gross and tell them its 18. It's quite simple math.

    I have been working at Grupo Bimbo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, consumer brand driven company that reinvests in the business 80% of cash flow, has grown steadily for more than 68 years. Publicly traded in Mexico, yet run with many of the good things of a closely held, family business. Sincere concern about the well being (material, mental, professional and even personal) of their associates. Fosters an environment of respect, trust, fairness and where leaders care for the people as much as they care for the financial results. Don't be fooled, this is not a "country club" the work is hard, the pace is at times brutal, but the opportunities to lead and go places are really great. The company has operations in about 19 countries and has lots of room for growth in almost every market.

    Cons

    In some countries, a 6 day workweek can be challenging. Compensation is competitive but not aggressively so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on diversity. Insure that leaders in the U.S. understand the culture and values of Grupo Bimbo and embrace and practice them.

    Pros

    Great money considering the work. Pretty much on your own all day.

    Cons

    Little appreciation of employees. Old equipment. Split days off. No room for advancement. No management follow up. Clueless, distant upper-management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor lower level management. Encourage and embrace impute from the front line. Offer advancement and co-ownership by mentoring and training.
