    I worked at Baker Distributing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Baker's executive team is harder working than most executive teams I have worked for. They are typically at work before the regular staff arrive, as well as still being there when many leave for the day. There is a "follow my lead" management structure in many of the departments. It is a great place to work for anyone that wants a family atmosphere with flexibility and work/life balance. I was valued and mentored during my nearly 10 years at Baker. If I had a question it was answered quickly and thoroughly by my managers. The company operates on a lean staffing structure resulting in very few layoffs over the years, even when the industry took a hit in the economic downturn.

    Cons

    Due to the lean staff, there are not typically advancement opportunities within the same department. It is a great place to learn but turn over may be inevitable for those entry level employees looking for advancement quickly.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to evaluate employees regularly to determine if they are still meeting the needs of the company and either reallocate resources or remove "dead weight".
