    Pros

    Great people to work with and low stress environment. It really depends on your area/department and your co-workers and supervisor but all in all it's a great employer

    Cons

    Long hours, some politics when it comes to changing positions. Not a lot of back up for when you are sick or out.

    Great experience, lousy pay, unnecessary workload

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Greeley, CO
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Greeley, CO

    I worked at JBS USA Holdings, Inc. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The head of my department was the best you could get. He protected us from many opportunities they asked us to trim the area. It gave me great personal experience

    Cons

    After deciding to look around and other jobs (finding few in the Colorado area) I found my position was severely underpaid compared to the industry. Not only that but the staffing was quite small compared to other companies doing the same thing. So I'd like to copy a similar note from another reviewer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep positions in line with their correct pay scale. I see how it helps bottom line but in the long run I've seen a large group of talented youth leave.

    Pros

    Interesting working with the plants

    Cons

    The company does not reward hard working and ethical employees, instead focusing on the largest complainers and the least valuable employees. You cannot get fired for being a bad employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the quarterly/semi-annual reviews to also evaluate managers and salaries of hard working employees.

    Good experience for a short term. Good if you are male.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn for a short term. Colleages are so nice. Office is spacious.

    Cons

    Low pay. No raise but more work. When someone leaves they will restructure the team and hire a new person at lower cost. Or, they will convince internal people to take the job so it will be cheaper and people end up leaving as they are not really happy with the job. No opportunities to grow. Too much hierarchical (might be Brazilian style). The boss doesnt care about your learning curve or any new skills you should get to improve yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looking at the big picture. ...why you have so much turnover. ..that's not good for a long run. To be lean is good but too much you will keep losing good people.

    Pros

    I did truly love working for this company. I gave it my heart and soul and thought I would work there forever. The benefits are great, the building is nice, and the bonus was also a treat. They treat their employees great with company parties, family activities, and group outings.

    Cons

    I think this company makes it extremely difficult to get a raise or a promotion unless you are a male. I watched people with little to no experience advance much quicker if they were male. And I am saying this as someone that was promoted!
