    I have been working at Ferrara Candy Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not only has the company grown immensely since I joined, but I have also grown more than I imagined possible! While the flexibility is unheard of, things still get done Ferrara Fast. Leadership is open to feedback and will do what it takes to make you happy. I wanted a well-rounded career and the opportunity to learn about other functional areas of the business - that's what I got at Ferrara. Plus, our new office is incredible - I have an ergonomic automatic deck, two monitors, free access to an incredible gym and as many types of coffee and healthy snacks I could ever want. Who knew I could be so happy to go to work?

    Cons

    Leadership is working to improve the have a more formal mentoring/feedback/development program. That being said, you won't find a leader who isn't open to sitting down with you to chat and give advice!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ferrara Candy Company (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied and was contacted by HR within a month or so. Interviewed with the hiring manager with typical tactical questions about the role. Was emailed to come in for an in person, followed up to schedule with other HR team members in copy and heard nothing back even after multiple follow ups. Quite unprofessional and disappointing to get no response at all, especially since I was genuinely excited about the opportunity.
