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

    Pros

    The company has great benefits

    Cons

    Long shifts and weekends when you’re on production shift- The right hand often seemed to not know what the left hand was doing- I often thought “who runs this place?” They’ve been a copacker- but recently took over this bakery themselves and it’s messy. I hope it’s just growing pains, but I hope they figure it out soon. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Engage more with your folks on the production floor - they’re your hands and feet and probably have some pretty valuable input. Don’t let your ego get in the way and brush them off.

      I worked at Clif Bar full-time

      Pros

      Great benefits and incentives. On-site gym and exercise classes. Outdoor industry discounts. Casual attire.

      Cons

      Under the 'it's cool to work at Clif' is an underlying intensity akin to aggressive publicly traded corporations. Work life balance is not as it appears.

      Pros

      Great benefits including generous PTO, ESOP, flexible schedules, etc. Owners are truly committed to making a CPG company that improves the food system vs hurting it.

      Cons

      Lack of risk tolerance by leadership. Depending on your department, there is unclear career-pathing.

      Advice to Management

      Help develop true leadership skills in for people in manager level positions and up.

        Pros

        Great benefits, casual environment, very liberal organization

        Cons

        Seems great, at first...Lacks infrastructure, processes, and clear leadership. You must be one of them to fit in. They don't want to hear opinions that don't align with their approach to the business. Duplicitous leadership team

        Advice to Management

        Practice what you preach
