    Pros

    The location is great - right along the Boise River and quick access to the Greenbelt. It's also really close to downtown Boise. The work is challenging and provides a continually opportunity to learn new things.

    Cons

    The pay does not seem to be competitive with years of expereience and other corporate offices in the area. The continual discussion of head count and benefit reduction is unmotivating and tiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start treating your employees like assets that deserve the best.

    Pros

    If you have no other option.

    Cons

    Constant downsizing of staff/distribution of increasing work to remaining staff is exhausting - management indifferent. Salaries frozen since 08 recession (even a 2% annual 'increase' is a joke). Job titles changed to avoid bonus payout to workers/ Bonus money still funneled to high paid Directors/Execs. 401k taken away to add more stress. If concerns voiced, told to get another job if you don't like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop fleecing what little company profits are made in a wholesale grocery business. Execs/CEO/COOs could take a $1M pay cut for just one year & avoid laying off 50 'head of household' workers. Stop using corporation to maintain millionaires' lifestyles & go back to purpose of companies - provide services/jobs/dividends to customers/employees/communities & shareholders.
