I have been working at Driscoll’s as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Very successful company, that is more true to it's values than most companies large or small. Lot's of smart employees passionate about the company. Surprisingly high level of business sophistication especially for an ag based company. New College graduates especially with ag and ag/business degrees can build long and successful careers with this company (we have Directors that started as Interns). Big emphasis on hiring and promoting from within. Exciting global initiatives that will continue to challenge but offer opportunities to employees. Lots of fresh berries to eat and impress your friends and family with.

Cons

Interview process is detailed and thorough (not really a con), so do your research if you want to get hired here. Takes some time to understand and learn the business. Company is growing so lot's of change.

Advice to Management

Continue to stay true to company values.

    I have been working at Driscoll’s full-time

    Pros

    Family owned. Although now a large company, can still have a well-connected feel. If you are motivated and willing to devote the time, there is opportunity for growth. Depending on the job type, there is a lot of opportunity for travel. A lot of free food and well-stocked kitchens.

    Cons

    Lots of systems/processes can be outdated or inefficient due to a lot of growth happening too quickly. Although new positions are constantly being created, most departments feel understaffed. Pay inconsistent across departments and sometimes not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize pay across departments in order to better keep good employees.
