    I worked at ARYZTA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for the company is their ability to recognize good workers , and also the patience of the staff concerning all deterrents that may interfere with any worker and their ability to complete the task.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides to working for the company is the exposure of temperatures that may actually intensify as the seasons revolve.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to remain patient and positive toward workers who establish a consistency in respect of the work place , and production of good work.

    Pros

    Nice people. Hardly any accountability.

    Cons

    Company only cares about the bottom dollar. Their "core values" are a load of crap. They like to give a bunch of lip service saying "we care about our people" but it's a lie. They only care about what the financials say. Also... Long hours. Poor working conditions. Poor supervision. Organizational structure is a mess. People holding upper level management positions that would hardly cut it as a low level supervisor in most companies. Company only promotes based off hard work rather than actual talent.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. It's the same story every single day. Stop talking and start acting. Care about your people, not just your paycheck. It's pathetic.
