I worked at Dean Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The hours and culture are laid back. The fact that the company is not very efficient and financial initiatives and Executive leadership are constantly changing is a positive in my book. It keeps things interesting and you get to work with different people with different personalities, which is a good thing in the long run. The reporting and countless number of financial systems were an inconvenience but figuring out how to mine for the data and getting around the systems and meaningless reports expand your skill set.

Cons

The pay is not very good. They are very selective as to who they want to promote. The Executives are the only individuals that benefit from the hard work the rest of us put in. If you just need a job and want to get by, this is the place for you. If you want to make a name for yourself, I wouldn't work here.

Advice to Management

Don't let good talent slip away from lack of recognition.

    I worked at Dean Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. Open door policy to senior management. Benefits are very good. Expectations for job performance are spelled out and reviewed quarterly.

    Cons

    Methodologies for projects are in constant flux. Understaffed and run way too lean. No clear path to advancement. Business buy in and support is spotty.

    Advice to Management

    Be advocates for the user community. Work with the stakeholders and help them embrace what IT can do. Don't promise what you can't deliver. Educate the enterprise on the reason and path of the PMO methodologies.
