    Pros

    There are no pros to write about. If you are considering working here, DON'T. Unless you absolutely can't find anything else, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

    Cons

    They have no problem lying to you in order to get you to accept the position. Corporate and management are constantly playing games and making everyone's work/life harder than it needs to be. Simple reinvestment of profits into new tech would work wonders. Instead, they constantly play catch up with the rest of the industry and blow money on corporate parties. This company operates like it is doing business in the 1800's. Don't attempt to recommend improvements on any processes or you will regret it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing games and be up front with employees. Top level directors need to stop trash talking other employees behind their backs. At least attempt to make changes in order to improve and start investing in the employees.

    Pros

    Good pay, fast pace and challenging work. High level of autonomy.

    Cons

    Corporate Marketing team is constantly in total chaos. Plant level personnel are always paying for their lack of organization, and poor communication, and lack of vision on where they want to take products.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are trained on learning "the Toyota Way" only to be sent back home to work on project to cut costs and make the cheapest product possible with a total disregard to quality. This is NOT the Toyota Way.

    Pros

    There are no pros to this job. They don't understand work/home life balance. All they care about is money. Doesn't give a crap about their employees!

    Cons

    To many hours. They expect to much from one person

    Advice to Management

    Split routes to give salesman time to service each store properly

    Pros

    All the overtime you want. Good insurance.

    Cons

    Harsh environment. Very labor intensive.

    Advice to Management

    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....

    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.
