    Very dedicated

    I have been working at Michael Foods

    Pros

    It has been a great place to work. Fair salary, with great benefits. Many employees have been there 20 plus years.

    Cons

    Hard to advance. Just like most companies, employees are doing more with less resources. Many new systems are coming on board, it seems like we are reinventing the wheel.

    I worked at Michael Foods full-time

    Pros

    401k and ins are good. the pay is low, the hours are long. if you are hourly it's an ok job as you can get away with alot.

    Cons

    lack of communications, upper management will say one thing and do another. if you are in management don't work for them. do the research and see how many members of management have left in just the last year. gaylord,mn plants are very poorly managed and 1 sided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove the top manager at both plants and get a new hr manager. very one sided

    I worked at Michael Foods full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great 401K program with employee match.

    Cons

    No communication at all from upper management. Periodically the big bosses from Minnesota would make an appearance to our facility. They made sure not to communicate or make eye contact with anyone that worked hard for them. Typical corporate mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try communicating with ALL of your employees. It will help you succeed.

    Pros

    Overall, an outstanding company to work for. Competitive salary and benefits, relaxed, but professional work environment. Management is very supportive of family and life outside of work. The general office atmosphere is upbeat and happy.

    Cons

    The only downside that I can see so far is that not many people quit from this company, so there is not always a position to move up to!
