    Pros

    The benefits that are actually aloud at the production facilities are nice.

    Cons

    Management especially in the warehouse area are really bad and need replaced. No common sense anywhere in the building and HR talk a good game so be careful what you fall for.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the aspirations. Not only when convenient but all the time.

    Pros

    If you don’t care about advancement or challenge it’s a great place to be to coast through the years. Upper management does not value creativity or forward thinking

    Cons

    Disfunctionl teams are common with no clear goals or incentive for improvement. Lack of collaboration and upper management is not motivated to empower

    Advice to Management

    Need to get new motivated leaders

    I have been working at Clif Bar full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    We do what's right for the environment, community, employees, consumers (quality products), etc because we believe it's right. I've seen how the business works from the inside and I'm inspired daily by the integrity and care that is shown at all levels of the org. Plus, people really care about each other and it's a fun place to work. I feel inspired and energized by the work, company and team and sincerely love coming...

    Cons

    For those who want to climb a career ladder on a timeline, this may not be the place since there's low turnover. However, for those with a growth mindset, there are plenty of opps to continue growing and developing personally and professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to live the values every day and in every decision as you stay open to adapting and changing as the company evolves.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Clif Bar full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The Aspirations and Ingredients that Clif Bar advocates are real and can be felt at all levels of the organization. While change is slow and sometimes painful, the mission to move the Indianapolis bakery to a more "Clif Like" culture is taking place. This is already a great place to work and you can see things getting better almost every day.

    Cons

    With great benefits come higher expectations! There has been significant turnover as non-contributors and people who simply refuse to meet the minimum expectations are removed from the organization. The company is relatively new to manufacturing so there are many things that are still in development that are just taken for granted in larger more mature companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the right thing, especially when it is difficult or creates other challenges and continue to work on employee engagement.
