    I have been working at Blue Bell Creameries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, family friendly, my insurance is free, good work load, love my department, 401K match, pension, helps me provide for my family

    Cons

    NO employee incentive to do the right thing, lots of people still around with the old mentality, job openings aren't posted to employees, you CAN'T transfer departments(you would have to quit and re-apply, how crazy is that), people do what they want, little to no recognition, we DO NOT eat all we want and sell the rest(old Blue Bell did), they want you to do the same job for your career(happens more than not), NO thinking outside the box

    Advice to Management

    Pull employees in once a quarter or twice a year to get a glimpse into what they are dealing with. This isn't their dept management, but upper management. That is how you find out what is really going on in the plant. Be visible in the plant(all depts.).
