    I worked at Wilbur-Ellis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free schedule, pay, customer relations, vehicle, ability to control your income/bonus, legacy employees high in knowledge, great technology products and offerings

    Cons

    Long, 16 hour days during the growing season, potential 7 day work weeks, adverse weather conditions, liability for crop claims

    Advice to Management

    Management is too top heavy. Wilbur pricing is also ridiculously high and the cause for a loss in sales, customer base, and employee edge over competition. Also, probably reason for
    Increased turnover rate.
