    I worked at McCormick & Company (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for a recognized and trusted brand

    Cons

    The company is too top heavy with management on all levels. Many employees are over qualified for their positions by having advanced degrees and doing entry level work. Rarely promotes within. Benefits aren't as nice as other companies in the area. The culture of the company is behind the times in technology and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    The days of people working in the same position for years without being promoted are long gone. Young people need to feel valued, appreciated, and compensated for their work. They also want

    I worked at McCormick & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    McCormick is a great brand and one that will be around for a long time.

    Cons

    HR talks a lot about how much employees' are valued but it is all talk. In order to have upward mobility it is who you know and not what you have accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    If you value your family then this company is not for you. If you want to go to McCormick anyway then take the experience and move on.

    I worked at McCormick & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company has great benefits package, strong health benefits, 401k with matching funds. Also included pension plan until last few years.

    Cons

    Pay is not commensurate with abilities, they struggle with developing internal talent due to insufficient training program so many mid-level and above positions get filled from outside company.

    Advice to Management

    Change is a good thing if managed properly.... shifting too much, too quickly from a people oriented company to totally business results driven has been challenging.
