    I was like a group of freelancers met each day. No teamwork, pride or direction. Weak leadership.

    Pros

    Decent co-workers. Checks didn't bounce. Lots of good people passed through the agency.

    Cons

    Get your salary on the way in as raises are practically nonexistent. Nobody advances their lot in life there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire.Sell why you can.

    I worked at McCormick

    Pros

    Good client base in both agriculture and animal health. A lot of good people there, the stress was much less than other places I worked.

    Cons

    Little bit too much complacency. Some people there needed to go, but overall I enjoyed working with everyone there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would have been nice to had a more formal review process

    I worked at McCormick full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are some fantastic folks working for the company
    Very flexible schedule
    Holiday party
    Bonuses

    Cons

    Excessive micro-management
    Raises are non-existent
    Benefits were not competitive or negotiable
    Insurance is way too expensive
    Bonuses are NOT performance based
    Long wait for 401k vesting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Six people cycled through a single [small but very important] team in less than a year--five of them being in just the last six months. It should be clear that there are problems, not only in that department, but going on up the chain there, too. Please, for the sake of all current staff, do something to end this trend.

    I worked at McCormick full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - I met some good people there. Thankfully, most of them have been able to get out and find new opportunities where their talents can be appreciated.
    - Pet friendly

    Cons

    - Management has no idea how to run a successful business or manage people.
    - Pay is below market average and they don't give raises.
    - Bullying of employees is a big problem, and management are the biggest culprits.
    - Feedback from employees is "listened to" and then used against the person.
    - They aren't looking for the right ways to do things, just the fastest and cheapest.
    - Employees have to give their personal cell phone info so that they can be reachable at all times. And no reimbursement is given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit or hire someone that knows how to manage an office. Obviously it isn't your forte and that's why talent continues to walk out the door.
