    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Eden Foods full-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with my team. No traffic to get to the office.

    Cons

    Way out in the country. Family owned and very challenging environment. No flexible work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage employees.

    I worked at Eden Foods full-time

    Pros

    The mission for organic food quality and relationships with local farmers.

    Cons

    I expected this to be my dream job due to my beliefs in sustainable agriculture. However, I found myself in an incredibly hostile work environment where the CEO and family abuse their staff (ie. Name calling, throwing things, manipulation). Everyone works in fear due to this. Libertarian and religious propaganda get pushed into the work place often and can be quite uncomfortable. Minorities and women are especially targeted by the CEO. I would suggest respecting yourself by avoiding at all costs, no amount of money is worth getting trapped in this volatile place.

    Advice to Management

    The culture throughout the Potter family is so intensely controlling that I don't know what could save the company. Treat your employees with respect and leave your anger at home. Energy is a huge morale influence.

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

    Pros

    Established organic food company - first in North America

    Advice to Management

    Create an open forum for employees. Practice what you preach.
