Pros – Great benefits (company paid car, trips, etc.), quick promotions, job requirements are clearly defined.

Pros – The company is very well recognized by many as a leader in quality foods. The supervisors work very well with others to ensure their safety and that the best product is sold.
Cons – There are times when employee hours are very scarce. The expectation of employees is that they will have 40 hours as full-time workers. However, the company frequently changes the employee schedule without sufficient notice
Advice to Senior Management – Production assembly is not an easy task. Although it doesn't take a high IQ, it would be wonderful if management remembered that we are valued members who have vested interest in the success of this company.

Pros – Work life balance is great. Switch to PTO a couple years ago means a lot of vacation time, even for new employees.
Cons – Focus on developing finance careers has taken a backseat to cutting overheads/jobs and focus on a successful split into two companies.
Not as many great leaders as there could be for a great company like this.

Pros – Good benefits and telecommuting opportunities. On site health club and company store. Plenty of opportunities for project managers.
Cons – Work/life balance can often be an issue. Sometimes management says one thing but their actions do another. They publicly support work/life balance while continuing to take on heavy workloads that will ensure their staff may not be able to take PTO time or experience a work/life balance that is adequate.
Advice to Senior Management – Don't allow "stretch goals" to over stress employees by overloading them with too much work that prevents them from spending time with their families.

Cons – there is not enough help or manpower in the M&R department
Advice to Senior Management – consider hiring more employees to help reduce worker comp claims from injuries caused by lack of help and employees trying to complete work to get production back
