    I have been working at Cutrale Citrus Juices USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a Large company who's employees gain extremely valuable experience in a short amount of time. The work environment is fast-paced and there is never a dull moment. There are many very good employees throughout the company, both at the management level and below.

    Cons

    The worst part about this company is that they do not value their employees. They are very cheap and do not believe in raises or bonuses, not only for those who simply deserve it, but even those who are irreplaceable. They also expect far too much out of their employees relative to the pay, and the pay is always far, far below the average regional rate per position. I could go on for about an hour in the "Cons" section,...

    Advice to Management

    Enough with the zero-trust policy, extreme micro-management, and zero appreciation of your employees. If you want to keep good employees that can better the company for the long-run then you have to pay them competitively and give incentive to work and stay with the company.

    I have been working at Cutrale Citrus Juices USA for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have been at Cutrale for 8 years. I work with several people that has been here for a long time. This is a decent company. It does not make everyone happy, but not a bad place to make a decent living and pretty good benefits. Safety seems to be a big part and that is good.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours are long, but the pay off is when I get my check!

    Company is progressive, Schedule for Lab Techs was near perfect

    I worked at Cutrale Citrus Juices USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Paid the bills, barely. employees were a good bunch to work with. some supervisors actually knew what they were doing.

    Cons

    Information you need to do your job is a secret. Try working with your hands tied behind your back. Needed to turn your phone off to get an actual day off.

    Advice to Management

    Quit micromanaging and empower the employees.

    When a person in Management commits a felony by Falsifying doccumentation, and senior management is aware of it, its time for outside enforcement to check all aspects of this company

    Pros

    Great emplolyees, Learned a lot, strong work ethic by senior management, good community involvement

    Cons

    Poor communication to hourly employees, not enough employee appreciation

    Advice to Management

    Consider having focus groups with hourly employees to discuss work place issues. This would help with job satisfaction and would decrease turn over.

    I worked at Cutrale Citrus Juices USA

    Pros

    Good Experience, abiiity to gain knowledge of the citrus industry, Benefits like insurance and 401k are decent, Production teams strive for good performance and high numbers

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities No leadership Poor safety Very shady operations during audits Partial treatment towards others because of nationality Insufficient warning of scheduling

    Advice to Management

    MIcromanagement needs to stop, The number of middle management roles needs to grow instead of having a high number of responsibilities delegated to each person, Compensation needs to get better for all lower and middle positions - Huge disparity exists between middle and upper management. Offer more recognition, praise and acknowledgment to all responsible for good performance
