Workforce is thin and everyone is stressed to the max, those who want work-life balance get worked out...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Snyder's-Lance full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have personally learned a lot working here because you have to wear 10 hats as they keep staff lean. Training was actually excellent for my dept.

ConsThe nicest people keep getting quietly let go or forced out which makes for BAD morale. Workloads are unbearable and stressful.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the people you've invested in. Educate public on major packaging changes like Lance- people don't recognize it.

Poor Leadership post merger

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Snyder's-Lance full-time for more than a year

ProsSnacks category is growing significantly.....lots of room for continued growth. Several brands are segment leaders.

ConsSerious lack of leadership by senior leaders. Very poor communication to employees led to horrible moral. Top performers quickly left after a year into new S-L launch. There is no infrastructure for development or career-tracking....very much still operating as 2 different companies...

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide a clear vision.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
