    Pros

    Niagara is a fast paced company that moves quickly and is growing at a rapid pace (30+% a year for the past decade.) There are lots of opportunities for internal promotions and professional development. Managers expect a lot out of their employees. The company is 100% family owned and the owners are still involved in the business and there is a family culture, even though the business has grown dramatically. There are lots of training opportunities and rotational programs for employee development.

    Cons

    - The corporate office is crowded, with parking becoming a big problem. - Benefits could be better - The culture is not for everyone. People coming from larger companies tend to have a hard time adapting to the pace. - Many departments are under staffed leading to resource constraints

    Really fair assessment. Thanks for taking the time to share your perspective and while growth is excellent, it does come with some growing pains, as exampled by some of your cons.

    Pros

    You can trust HR to help you with management craziness...

    Cons

    Low Pay, Management doesn't care because you aren't from Stockton, CA, and if you can't speak Spanish then you aren't part of the click.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at color and more about education. You guys don't have a degree, but three of you do and you try to treat those blacks Very Bad!!! Please wake up before this company is gone.

    Pros

    The workers there are awesome and laid back. Some of them are very hard working and dedicated.

    Cons

    The leadership is worried about one thing only and that is their KPI reports. They don't care or respect the workers. To stuck up their own butts to notice the reason for their high turn around rate. The chance for growth in the company is slim to none. You wont be moving up so if you are looking for a career this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example.......you have to show respect before getting respect.

    Pros

    Good, caring people on the production floor. State of the art equipment with the latest technology. Good place to get experience in the bottling business.

    Cons

    Young, inexperienced management. Management lacks ethics and professionalism. No work-life balance. Company experiencing severe growing pains. Very high employee turnover company wide. Constant danger of termination for errors. Benefits mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Regain control of your company before growing more. Focus on correcting the root cause of employee turnover before losing this company completely. Employee error is a failure of management.

    Pros

    Learning about the beverage industry, different bottled products. Multi-tasking duties as a production operator.

    Cons

    When not supporting their staff in advancing his or her education. Company wants the staff to be brownnoser's at their beck and call. Not having a sense of organization for new lines of production.

    Advice to Management

    Support your production and warehouse staff enable have a better company, without these indivduals Niagara would not be successful now. Don't play any cat and mouse games with your staff.

    I worked at Niagara Bottling

    Pros

    There are very many hard working people that continously drive for results. The associates work hard as a team and encourage one another. Team members always ask what can I do to help.

    Cons

    The management team is constantly turning over and really does not have a clue at times of what's going on. Management does a very good job pointing the finger at everyone else but lacks the talent to lead by example because they are clueless. The merit program is a joke and they have given their employees 1% raises when they make great profit off of a case of water. The management team is unethical and needs to learn how to manage better. Nothing is consistent in the company. One month you do one way then it changes again but you end up going back to way things were done months ago. Consistency drives better results which leads to less turnover and a higher bottom line. Guess a bunch of people were sleeping when they took that economics class.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to senior management is this: you are growing to fast to keep up with the demand of your business. Therefore you can't obtain enough and the right talent to run your business. Since your management is very unethical you need to question this: do you want to keep these people running your business when they don't know what there doing or would you rather pay out lawsuits due to them being unethical. It's up to you to make the change.

    Pros

    I was hired with no background. In this industry and was given a chance based on my education.

    Cons

    I worked here for nearly 2 years, put in a lot of hard work, covered for people during their absence, was very fast and efficient at my job and completed my everyday duties in much less time than my co workers and still had time to pick up their slack at times. I was rewarded for all this hard work and dedication when there came the one and only opportunity for advancement during my two years here and I was passed on. My job, with a higher pay and advanced title, was essentially given to someone else with no background in QA who had been with the company less than a year. My hard work meant nothing when it came time for advancement it all hinged on the formalities of an interview, we now have new people in management who can not effectively communicate with their peers and seem to deliberately go out of their way to be rude and dismissive since they were promoted. What great people you promoted!

    Advice to Management

    Actually think before you promote those who seemingly deserve it and hose the best candidate who will raise their peers up instead of tearing them down.
