    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Clif Bar full-time for more than 9 years

    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 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.

    Pros

    A great place to work for someone just out of school, or just starting a career. Some departments have more promotions than others, as there is A LOT of mobility—upwards, sideways, outward. It has a young, active culture, so the energy is high.

    Cons

    If you are fluent and experienced, there might be times where the interaction with newbies' inexperience causes inefficiencies and failure. Some departments are able to balance work-life more than others. The hierarchy is multi-layered.
