    Good company, huge growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Jumped the Shark

    Marketing (Former Employee)

    ProsExciting company that is always innovating and creating new businesses. Has some great leaders in the organization and has a remarkable track record of success. Was a phenomenal place to work and grow as a leader, now just a regular company with a slowing growth trajectory.

    ConsBrian Kelley makes every decision and this is a significant demotivator. Additionally, the organizational structure is a disaster and people do not understand their role. There have been like 8 reorgs and another is coming. Place is very political and not anywhere near as fun as it used to be. Good people are leaving in droves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow folks to make decisions at all levels and do not abandon the significant growth opportunities that still exist in the U.S. coffee business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not what it seems

    Maintenance (Current Employee)
    Knoxville, TN

    ProsBenefits are good.
    Pay is good (depending on your job).

    ConsJob advancement is almost impossible.
    Pay increases don't exist.
    The buddy system is entrenched here.
    Job bids are a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide ways to reach obtainable job advancement and wage increases. Stop the rigged job bid system, and buddy promotions. As it stands there is almost no accountability and managers only give raises to their buddies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Essex, VT

    ProsGreat benefits and culture. There are a tremendous number of great people who all believe in the culture and want to see the company continue to "do the right thing for the business and the world.

    ConsIt has become difficult to make an impact. The focus has transitioned to stock price rather than employee and consumer well being.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShift the culture back a couple of steps and concentrate on what made the company great. It was one of the 10 highest performing stocks of all time before that was all that was considered.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    flat...starting downward spiral

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking people are dedicated to what they are doing. Efforts to make products better, faster, cheaper are real. Involvement with community is higher than I've seen in any other company

    ConsManagement pyramid is becoming a rectangle. Increasing number of leaders providing conflicting/constraining direction and cutting off the ability to bring in workers to carry out their plans.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key. Understanding *what* was communicated has been lost. If I say to you "X" and walk away (or if you do it) that is not enough. What needs to happen is to ask "What did you hear?" and if the response is "Y" then something is wrong.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's definitely changing

    Software Developer/Analyst (Current Employee)
    Burlington, VT

    ProsGMCR has had significant growth that is creating the need to raise the professional level of operating. This might be uncomfortable so some people, as noted in other reviews. The good news is that if you want to work in a professional environment with lots of opportunity then this is a great place to be.

    ConsThe environment is changing - may not suit some.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company, but getting infiltrated by Corporate Cockroaches

    Business Systems Analyst III (Current Employee)
    Waterbury, VT

    ProsHands Down, great place to work, have not seen a better place to work in my life ( Avoid working in IT Department). Excellent People, Great Benefits, very positive overall environment "except in IT". Excellent over all work-life balance, very family friendly environment. Just stay away from Corporate Cockroaches

    ConsGMCR Culture is getting destroyed, too many Corporate Cockroaches have infiltrated Management. Organic Growth for internal employees have disappeared (Negotiate a good deal). Internal upward movement is not there anymore. Sycophancy is rampant. GMCR culture of openness is being replaced by "Management by intimidation"

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen, free and vibrant environment drives creativity and innovation. GMCR culture of openness is being replaced by "Management by intimidation".

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Generally good company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    South Burlington, VT

    ProsGreat benefits, both medically as well as company perks

    ConsUneven management, some are very flexible, others are down your throat looking for information and while that is expected at a company, when both are working on a project, it makes for very uncertain work environment

    Advice to Senior Managementconsistency is needed across the board
