    I have been working at Del Monte Foods full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Pension Plan, that's literally it for those hired up until about a year and a half ago. There are summer hours in which you get to leave at 3 PM on Fridays, that is if upper management says OK and lets you.

    Cons

    Rudderless leadership, slow to change, innovates at a glacial pace, 100+ year old company = 100+ year old way of thinking to bring new ideas to market. Lots of clock punchers that have been with this company for many years making SF wages now in Walnut Creek. Poor performers (Sr. Managers) continue to "ride it out" without adding any value to company, as other companies innovate and continue to take market share away...

    Advice to Management

    I know it's hard, but you need to trust your employees and stop micro-managing to the hilt. There are entire departments that do not care for the management style of checking their work and constantly second guessing and questioning them. Again, the only reason most people are there is for your retirement plan, not because they enjoy being told how to do their job and second guessed at every turn.
