    I worked at Davisco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Le sueur cheese shop sells good pizza for employees, plenty of cheese buying options

    Cons

    low pay, constant politics and upper management interference to your job, low vacation and pretty uni-racial environment. the only diversity you see is at lower level jobs. Upper management is all white. If you are not white and yet looking for a decent level management job, good luck!

    Advice to Management

    Care for employees at the bottom and bring some diversity to work force. Pay decent wage to employees working on weekends and overtime. Offer bonus based on performance

    Pros

    Growing company. Just bought by Agropur. All hope is for this to be a chance to improve. To move forward to the 21st century.

    Cons

    Horrible PTO. Favoritism is very evident.

    Advice to Management

    Move out of the 1950's and make the improvements that will draw people to the company so they will want to stay for years. Prevent it from being a stepping stone job.

    I have been working at Davisco (More than a year)

    Pros

    Regional competitive pay and benefits including: medical, dental & vision insurance, 401K, LTD, STD, vacation, holidays & double-time Sundays available. Shift employees only work 7 out of 14 days.

    Cons

    As with any employer there are still people involved. Some are rock stars to work with and for and some are not. You can not base an opinion of an employer based on one or two individuals. As long as you are the best employee and take pride in your own work.

    Advice to Management

    Annual reviews. Annual wage comparisons based off of competition in our area.

    I have been working at Davisco full-time

    Pros

    Fast growing company for many years. Excellent job stability. This has been a flat organization where decisions can be made quickly without much red tape. Hopefully this stays in place with the recent acquisition by Agropur.

    Cons

    Hiring has not kept pace with company growth. Company has been pretty lean on personnel recently. Vacation program could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the growth, don't get too bureaucratic within the larger organization.

    Pros

    You get to work with good hard working people that will do what it takes to do the job right. Even though they know that they will not get a raise

    Cons

    You get lied to and you can't move up in the company. The would rather hire unqualified people for supervisor and management jobs
