    I worked at National Beef full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were great, time off policies were more than fair. 401k company match was incredible.

    Cons

    For the ladies: In this industry, you'll work with men for the most part, & may have to deal with a lack of professionalism. When I first started, there were many more perks than there are now. But the perks were always aimed towards the salaried employees. If you're hourly, you tend to get the short end of the stick....& that really affected the moral around the office among the hourly's. Many hourly employees feel unappreciated because no matter how hard we worked & improved our numbers, (upper) management remained completely oblivious & didn't seem to notice how hard we worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that bonuses and raises are off the table, why not make everyone hourly? Ever since Leucadia took over, many things have changed...and not for the better.
    Advice to Management? -- Treat all employees equally, show gratitude or some type of appreciation for the people that truly work hard, and not just base everything off seniority.

    Pros

    If you put your head down and do your job the work environment is great. In good (profitable) years the bonus structure is hard to beat.

    Cons

    Once you peel the layers off the onion, exposure leads to understanding. But as with any company you can find solid departments and people to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees, taking advantage of them and then throwing money at them after they decide to leave is no way to be a preferred employer.

    Pros

    Very comfortable work environment
    Up north so therefore no downtown traffic
    Easy to talk to upper management
    It's more like a family of friends instead of just co-workers
    Discounts on meat

    Cons

    Hourly employee's length of time trumps everything
    A Man's world
    Very little turnover therefore making it hard to move up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employee's well for their hard work, education and dedication instead of the length of time they have been with the company
