    I worked at John Morrell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    All the overtime you want. Good insurance.

    Cons

    Harsh environment. Very labor intensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Punish your management team members, when warranted. And look at some of your formeremployees, and how you benefitted from them. Maybe even think of hiring them back, if the situation arises....

    I have been working at John Morrell

    Pros

    The building has a garage, gym and cafeteria.

    Cons

    Bad management, open floor layout concept. It's a struggle to grow within the company. HR employees at John Morrell are useless, unfriendly and never willing to help answer a simple question.

    I have been working at John Morrell full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    No formal training, no communication, open office which is absolutely horrible - feels like people are watching you the whole day which is not condusive to a comfortable environment, management doesn't give reviews, nor do they offer you opportunities to learn or take on new projects so it feels as if you are "stuck" as your boss doesn't assist with professional growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that care about leading and helping with professional growth, change the open office floor plan so that people are able to actually focus. It starts from the top and right now the upper management rarely even acknowledges, let alone gets to know or care about the employees. Also, too many perks to directors - use that money to boost morale for ALL employees.
