    I worked at Dole Food full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, great people, competitive salary and benefits. Opportunities for those willing to work hard to earn it. The WLV HQ office is 5-star and it's cafe offers some of the healthiest, best tasting fare in town.

    Cons

    Not always in agreement with Sr Mgmt but always aligned and committed to supporting their initiatives and vision.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those in your reporting chain.
