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

Pros

I worked with a great team. There was very little "backstabbing" or passive-aggressive behavior from what I witnessed.

Cons

Some programs may lack stability. I left because mine shut down.

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

    Pros

    More open, relaxed, less stressful culture than companies I've worked for in the past. Employees work together to ensure the job gets done. Many executives are approachable. Company cares about environment and the community.

    Cons

    Employees feel that their voices aren't heard by upper management. Raises have been too low recently--where is the motivation?

    Advice to Management

    Implement a program where you can listen to ideas and concerns from the mid- and lower-level employees. The company would GREATLY benefit from this.

    I worked at Chiquita Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand and product. Great logistics management people

    Cons

    Board doesn't understand what it takes to pull away from the competition and build their brand. They are too short sighted to implement a marketing strategy and stay committed through short term bumps in sales revenue

    Advice to Management

    Set a vision and commit to a minimal investment in building that vision. Don't back off of a long term strategy on bananas due to underperforming salad business with Fresh Express.
