    Growth, Darling is Worldwide. Senior management has experience in the industry. They do a good job of recognizing employees when they exceed expectations.

    Continue to run this company the way it is, don't be like every other big company that dumps the bottom 20%, keep seeing the value in long term employees.

    I have been working at Darling International full-time

    Pros

    The company keeps growing, especially after buying Griffin. The work seems to keep increasing at all plants, this translates into a very steady job. The pay is really good, especially for low skill positions. They match retirement contributions and have profit sharing. The health insurance has become outstanding.

    Cons

    The work is very physical with long hours and harsh environments; hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It can be a dirty and smelly environment. Also, management has earned a bad reputation as being non-responsive, defensive and malicious. In fairness, I see that changing incrementally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to change the rendering and recycling culture from monarchical leadership toward teamwork and inclusion; your people can really help you achieve your goals.
