    I have been working at Patrick Cudahy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for advancement and personal satisfaction on the job. They manufacture top quality products and have made investments for continues improvement. As long as you are doing your job you should have a job for life.

    Cons

    Required to put in many hours without regard to your personal life. Goals and Direction of the organization have a tendency to change quickly and without communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote Advancement and salary options for those employees you see valuable. Start a succession planning program and have backups for key people when promoted. It's Ok to let underperformers go.

    I worked at Patrick Cudahy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Food industry player with a brand name in Bacon. Future on hold with new Chinese buyer for their parent company, Smithfield.

    Cons

    Anal implementation of SAP. IT is restrictive and acts like a cost center rather than a profit center. I think they chose the lowest bidder for their SAP implementation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join the 21st century. Upgrade your infrastructure - antiquated computer equipment running XP is just hampering your employees.
