Pros

The projects involve interesting, scientific work. Benefits are decent, better than most on Des Moines.

Cons

As said in an earlier review, there really is no chance for advancement based on merit. Work is frequently kept hidden so it's not claimed by management. Work techniques aren't shared. Change is discouraged unless one gets a manager to claim it as their own idea. Recognition and choice projects are all based on connections and politics. Everyone, especially who gets promoted, is all connected somehow, related, frat brother, etc. Upper management is never held accountable for mistakes or worse. Employees find out about important events via news media before being told at work.

    Pros

    Great pay, good bosses to work for, dependable job, and i for see a higher job placement in my future next year.

    Cons

    Some of the people that work there make it difficult to want to stay and the long hours of harvest season means less time with family.

    Advice to Management

    Some advice that I could possibly give would be that if they say that they are going to drug test you and move you up then they basically in all aspects do what they say they are going to do instead of giving false hopes and expectations.

    Pros

    Benefits, very safety oriented, care about employees well being, wages are not bad

    Cons

    to much favortizm was going on at our location, to get a job or promotion lately you had to either be a friend or relative to one member of managment.

    Advice to Management

    the plant locations need time clocks, in the long run this would save the company money if they started docking peoples time for being late. Over the years I have worked for Pioneer I have seen a lot of employees come in late and write 8 hours on their time cards. Nothing is done about it. I had reported this to management but didn't see anything come from it.
