    Pros

    Team like atmosphere in a temperature controlled environment. Employees are rewarded for their efforts and time with the company. Most people employed here have been with the company 10+ years.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment that forces you to be flexible in your day and your shift. Based on needs you may have to work over, come in early, or even switch shifts if your the low man on the pole. Pay Is a little low compared to other places in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Involve us more in the decision making process.

    Pros

    Strong, well-known brand. Lots of distribution with broadline distributors throughout the country. The innovation of their stevia product called Pure Via was a great addition to the portfolio to offer a natural, zero calorie sweetener to consumers at a lower price than the competition.

    Cons

    Because the products are made with artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose and saccharine consumers are not buying the volume they used to. Studies show that consumers are moving to more natural, healthy sweeteners, sugar or no sweetener at all. Their Pure Via is a natural, zero-calorie stevia offer but their is very little distribution and it is not a top brand in the consumers eyes. The company shares continue to decline as the new owners do not believe in investing in marketing dollars or consumer awareness to grow the brand. It is a give-away item. Not a priority category.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the brands you produce and promote consumer awareness through marketing and advertising.

    I work at Merisant because I work with some great people who are passionate about the business and are just great to be around.

    Cons

    Senoir leadership is not the best especially the CEO. It is a very volitale workforce and the culture isn't healthy.


  6. Lots of career growth in a trial by fire, insane environment.
