    Pros

    Genuine leadership with a willingness to help. Collaborative atmosphere amongst coworkers. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Monotonous work. Typical 8-5/6 job with no work from home availability. Lack of mobility without having to get plant experience.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize your approach to the workplace by allowing flex time and work from home capabilities.

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros about working for this company or at least the Decatur Further Processing Plants.

    Cons

    training, office culture, personal growth, benefits, pay, management, structure, cheap, quality, etc. I could go on and on and on about all the horrible things about this place.

    Advice to Management

    Apparently training is non-existent here, they expect you to know anything and everything about processing poultry within the plants and get angry if you ask for any help or confront anyone with a work-related problem. They like to threaten you with the phrase, "If you don't like how it's done around here or can't figure it out on your own, why don't you look for a different job elsewhere?!"


  10. Good job with decent work/life balance.

    Pros

    Loooooong hours, but still a decent work/life balance because the plant shuts down for most holidays and works very few weekends. Good weekend compensation and excellent performance appraisal's that provide yearly merrit raises. It's a tough and demanding job, but still very rewarding when you are committed to being successful.

    Cons

    The organizational structure is so lean that the plant manager is running a line if a supervisor is out on vacation. There is not enough management to provide back-up's at any position. Not much accountability for any department outside of operations. If a schedule is wrong, or a maintenance project is not completed correctly, nothing is ever done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that the staff is already stretched thin due to the lean organizational structure.
