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

    Pros

    The people were great, the company is big for Organics, it was a great place to work (pre buy-out). Post buy out they improved the extremely dated software. I believe they provide great medical benefits and a 401k.

    Cons

    Now a publicly traded company owned by a conglomerate, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but I personally know numerous employees who feel the company has been a less desirable place to work. Also they are out in the middle of nowhere. Don't expect many options for lunch without driving 10+ miles.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very good benefits and overall HR department and team.

    Cons

    It was located far- a little out there in San Juan Bautista but that is where the growing region was.

    I have been working at Earthbound Farm (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for an organic produce company makes you feel good about the product that goes out to consumers.

    Cons

    WhiteWave Foods acquired Earthbound almost two years ago, and with a new senior leadership team installed by the parent company, Earthbound is entering into a period of exponential growth. However, internal communications are poor, employee turnover is high, and morale is low.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more about the changes that the company is going through. Value individuals more.

    Corporate takeover now in progress
