    Pros

    A lot of talented hard working people work in the home office. Learned a lot while working here and had great co-workers. Pay and benefits were OK but like most companies now they were getting worse.

    Cons

    Everyone is afraid they will get fired, poor management at the top, micro management is the norm, politics at home office. Poor raises and bonuses. Sales, marketing and finance in a continuous state of flux. Pressure from St. Louis Executive team toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, listen to your customers, stop micromanaging

    Pros

    Good Pay.
    Ok Benefits (Used to be good)
    Mostly good workers
    Overtime (if you want it)

    Cons

    Bad Management
    Some supervisors are antagonistic
    HR has a "just cut jobs to save money" mentality
    Too much overtime for too few employees
    Not enough opportunities for advancement
    Bad communication
    Overtime (even when you don't want it, or have worked too much already)
    Disorganized
    Profit First mentality, Quality and Safety farther down the list

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees and not against them to make Post Cereals the great company it once was 20-30 years ago. Be more concerned about Quality and Safety, and less about the shareholders and profit margins. Making cereal is what makes money, and employees make the cereal.

    Pros

    Ability to make decisions. Management is helpful. They hold people accountable for their outputs. The hourly associates are hard working and diligent. The management and hourlies are generous. Innovation is allowed.

    Cons

    Marketing comes up with some wonderful products. The products are very good sellers. The customers like the products but they are not always the easiest to make. Once the "iIdiosyncrasies" of the process are understood, it becomes somewhat easier to produce.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat people with dignity and respect. Continue to hold people accountable, including management.

    Pros

    you get a general management role which is well-rounded and learn a great deal in the marketing positions.

    Cons

    Since its not a big CPG- a bit unstructured. So you better be spontaneous.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Paycheck. Not much else at this point. Everybody looking to get out.

    Cons

    Until recently Post was a good place to work. We seemed to be getting clear direction and there was good energy to turn the business around. With new leadership this has all changed. Constant firings, lies (especially women), no communication. Marketing has lost leadership. Everyone now out for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in St Louis and sell us to someone who cares.
