    I have been working at McCormick & Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits; rank and file associates generally great to work with; tremendous pride among employees regarding company; nice facilities

    Cons

    Still tout people management as core competency even though recent actions and mind sets contradict; internal promotion is not favored over outside hiring in leadership riles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your people for leadership roles; do not continue to streamline roles and eliminate positions

    Pros

    Great family company atmosphere. Great opportunities for growth. CEO knew all names of all members of management regardless of level.

    Cons

    Direct manager did not provide real feedback. Took comments from other folks and never asked for the employee's own feedback.

    I worked at McCormick & Company as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very laid back, easy to work with.
    I learned a lot from the upper level management while I was there. A lot of the things that they did were very interesting. I also was able to participate in setting up the physical aspect of a new building they were putting up.

    Cons

    Didn't really get assigned anything challenging. Wished I had. A lot of the things that I did were very menial and boring.

    Best Human resource, this company treats their employer nicely, looks of free food, my boss took me out for luck, they treat everyone with respect. Everyone working in McCormick is happy

    no cons, i guess maybe the engineers are not really respected..no labs for engineers, not a lot of bad things about the company was there for only 3 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the interns more work...organize your intern program better

    I worked at McCormick & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ok pay,wonderful benefits package,free medical screens no co-pay for service or medication given at there facility.very stable company, tuition reimbursement after one year,opportunities for advancement(for those with a yes sir attitude) and incredible work life balance.ex:your allowed to use and "8hourday" slip once a month and alternative schedule.You get to take off a whole week with sick pay and it'll will be considered 1 occurrence out of the 7 your allowed per year..

    Cons

    very intrusive they will send a private investigator out if your sick for a while and when u damage any case you have to take a urine test each time and sometimes blood! your productivity is "timed" at the belcamp facility,and management will not compromise in that regard.your notified about weekend work only one day before.the older people snitch on you on a daily basis they have a culture that makes it ok for your co-worker to get you fired,even on minuscule issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people are telling you that a manager is disrespecting every selector it should be taking seriously.

    Pros

    Everyone who comes to work here, stays. That is extremely rare to find these days. And, even if you start at an hourly position (like in the plant), you very well could find yourself working your way into corporate.

    Cons

    Due to heavy acquisition, several businesses are treated like stepchildren as compared to the base herbs & spices business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the organization to make all businesses equal in terms of attention and resources.

    Pros

    People are kind and patient--they will work with you to help you learn processes, culture, etc. You work with fabulous products and the company is going through a growth period.

    Cons

    It is a bit slow moving and there is pressure to issue dividends every year which influences product support decisions. Additionally, you really have to be a team builder to work here, which isn't a con, but is a word of caution for people who like to work as lone rangers.
