    I have been working at Cacique Inc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Own by a family that cares about the company and the employees. Competitive Salaries and good benefits.

    Cons

    The Sales and Marketing areas are being micro-managed at every detail, there is always sales pressure to increase sales, and the objectives are sometimes unrealistic. The working environment is one of fear of reprisal, and opinions cannot be expressed. Specially if the opinion is different from the one of the VP.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be based on merit and not based on who you know.

    Pros

    Work is easy, not much pressure.

    Cons

    Revolving door for employees, people are constantly coming and going. Company changes direction too much, new management team every couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people you hire do what they were hired for.

    I worked at Cacique Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good for medical, dental and vision. Free life insurance. 401k company matches what you contribute

    Bonus at the end of the year if the company performs well

    Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    This company will work you into the ground. Kiss your family and personal life goodbye because you'll be working 7 days a week 12+ hours a week with no days off. The only time you'll get a day off is if the city needs to shut off off the power or water for maintenance. Management is a mixed bag there are some good reasonable supervisors working there unfortunately they report to the most incompetent managers that have absolutely no idea how to manage they only care about their production numbers and care little for their workers. Turn over rate is extremely high in the production and sanitation departments. Most people last 1 day to 2 months on the before quitting. Long hours & low pay its no wonder they quit. On the job training is laughable so expect to work longer hours if you've learned how to do more than one job because chances are you're the only one that knows how to do that task and you won't be compensated for taking on extra tasks and staying longer hours than everyone else. Safety is a big problem at this plant people constantly get hurt and they do nothing to solve the problem it has a lot to do with the construction they are currently doing the plant is so cluttered there's hardly space to move and work safely.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to actually walk the plant floor and see exactly what's going on. The current management has really made a mess with the poor decisions they have made. Good employees have left because of the horrible work conditions. They should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting their workers.

    Pros

    You are trained in the art of unnecessary meaningless meetings. You will recognize people loving to hear their own voice.

    Cons

    Having to look everywhere at the bogus logo. Integrity Family, Quality, each which can be easily challenged.Looks pretty.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to a publicly traded corporation. Awake from the illusion that the family can run a viable business.

    I have been working at Cacique Inc full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are really nice. Everyone says hi to each other and it's a great family feel there. The medical benefits are awesome. There aren't too many companies that offer a medical plan without a deductible.

    Cons

    Horrible work schedule. Everyone, mainly production workers, works six days and about every other week seven days. Many days everyone works 10-12 hour shifts. If you don't have a life than this is perfect for you! The management and leadership sucks!! No one really stays hired long in the quality department. The pay is horrible! The new quality supervisor has no clue how to lead at all.

    Advice to Management

    You should put leaders in management that have actual experience and know how to respect your workers. You should value your workers a lot more because while your at home with your families, all of us have given up time with ours!!

    Pros

    The product is really tasty. Some of the employees are wonderful in certain departments.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership, in Marketing and in Human Resources. Ruling with fear and deception doesn't make a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    When good people leave, take a look at the leadership.

    Pros

    Plenty of work and then some. If you like overtime. Good benefits. Clean environment to work in. Sanitary is good at this facility.

    Cons

    If the supervisor or manager likes you, then you may have a chance of working for a few years. If not, forget about it.

    Advice to Management

    Get some serious training. Respectful work practices should help.
