    I have been working at Bimbo Bakeries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people who care about the business and one another. Opportunities to have an impact, offer new ideas and bring about change. Very large organization with opportunities for growth across the US or overseas. Immediate leadership team is fantastic! Open minded, flexible, and supportive. With what I currently have I don't wish to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    Let's be realistic, no company is perfect. We still have issues with some very old school thinking across the company, there is not a lot of diversity in mid level and upper management and work life balance is most definitely an issue. BUT it is noted that there are tremendous transformation efforts to change the culture, focus on diversity and inclusion, and improve all aspects of the business. The focus on valuing the person and being highly productive and profitable while being deeply humane is a very serious matter to this company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on improving the leadership team. Watch for managers who do not represent company values and create an environment to their teams that doesn't align with company objectives. Set the example for the right culture and hold others accountable to do the same. Continue to focus on diversity and inclusion so the best talent can feel they can join us and stay with us for there is opportunities for all. Continue to transform and change and continue to focus on people development. I love working here, I can't wait to see what this company will become.

    Pros

    (Elkhart) Well last year the muffin line was a dump, somehow the company managed to bring two guys from Georgia I believe. One of them is on 2nd shift and the other one is on 3rd...
    Since this 2 guys been here, the muffin line is running like I never seen before....Luis and Didier could be a bit nicer but I’ll tell you what, they get the job done...no many people are happy with this guys since they been here but in my personal opinion they have done a hell of a job

    Cons

    Management is always changing and supervisors are hard to keep for whatever reason. They keep on saying that we are gonna go back to 12 hrs shift...

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.
