    Pros

    I like almost everyone I work with. Possibility of being able to move around (or up) internally now and then. Many people believe in the culture that the company pushes.

    Cons

    Some systems seem archaic. Some people have been there so long that they're reluctant to change for the current work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting your people first. It's nice to actually feel good about going to work and not just tolerating it.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance. I have the freedom to put the needs of my family first without ever compromising my opportunity for professional growth within the organization. This company really does treat each and every one of its employees like family!

    Cons

    It can be cold in Wisconsin in the winter, but winter sports such as sledding, down hill and cross country skiing make the cold more tolerable. I even look foward to snow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the employee focus central to decision making. This is what makes the Sargento environment unique and wonderful to work in.

    Pros

    No politics, World class company and great people. Lou and Louie are great leaders. Focus on work life balance. Your ability to get a great review requires you to be engaged positively with your community and to give back. Leaders and employees are visibly present in their community and feel good about their contributions to others.

    The Campus in Plymouth is second to none.

    Cons

    Admittedly a small town, but with that comes people that are caring and extend themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Lou's approach into the future.

    Cons

    HQ is located in the middle of no where. Let's just say there isn't even a Wendy's in town.

    Management truly loves the employees and want everyone to do well. Management goes above and beyond the call of duty to do right by their employees.

    Pros

    Wonderful family ownership who truly cares about their employees. The pay is great, flexibility is outstanding, the benefits are fantastic, and the activities Sargento offers are wonderful. Their motto is 'Hire good people and treat them like family," and they live by this motto. GREAT PLACE TO WORK!!

    Cons

    Office employees have more opportunities and are given more such as outings, food, and flexibility than the manufacturing(plant) employees are. It is due to the nature of the business but there is a noticeable difference.

    Pros

    This is a company that treats its employees as a person, not a number. They offer a great work-life balance program and have been perfecting it since 1953. They've even hired a Work-Life Balance Coach to keep employees lives in balance. I've worked at other companies and consider myself lucky to be a part of this organization

    Cons

    The company is persnickety about its products and it also doesn't settle when it comes to hiring. It is a challenge to gain employment here and turn-over is very low. Once in the door, the culture makes a career enjoyable. So the hiring opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to protect the culture. It's what contributes to the company's 30, 35, 40 and 45-year employees.
