    I have been working at Baker Commodities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    every employee gets a turkey for thanksgiving and a ham for christmas

    Cons

    Pay is below average for what we have to do and for what they expect us to do ( rendering is a very smelly and nasty business)

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you are going to do instead of hoping your employees will forget what you said

    I worked at Baker Commodities full-time

    Pros

    Easy workload, entry level if desired. Good benefits. Some of the employees are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Family owned, which is not a con;but running the business like a dysfunctional family is. Some of the family members are hard working and kind to employees...the others, not so much. Accounting Team is a mess, the managers are not professional and treat their team very high school. If one manager is unhappy with you...the rest of the managers are unhappy with you. Pay was below average. Oh, and the environment is literally stinky! They pressure employees to get a degree, yet the managers that have them lack leadership skills.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training for your managers, its not all about the "piece of paper".

    I have been working at Baker Commodities full-time

    Pros

    The company cares about its employees. Flowers get sent to spouses on their birthday, every employee gets a turkey for thanksgiving and a ham for christmas. Family owned and operated and they care a lot about their "most valuable asset" their staff. Been around for 79 years. Fun group of people nationally to work with.

    Cons

    As with any company their are bad seeds that make everyone jobs harder. Sometimes you have to figure out how to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and weed out the few bad apples there.
