No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Freedom and encouragement to explore new ideas
- Management really cares about employees
- Higher than average pay
- Easy to make friends

Cons

- Very mechanistic, hard to meet top executives
- Antiquated processes
- Seems as though ethics is promoted by HR, but managers are promoted and compensated based on how well they are able to climb over other people in the organization
- Has been high employee turnover in the past, both at employee and executive levels

Advice to Management

Work on automating as many processes as possible at the corporate office level. This can result in huge cost savings and a reduction in the need for staff doing mundane, repetitive, boring jobs. Also, try to integrate current executives into a new executive's management style, i.e. don't get rid of an entire team of experienced officers because of a new manager.

    Pros

    I am very impressed with the amount of emphasis and promotion that Farmland puts on higher education for their employees. The tuition reimbursment amount is twice that of comparable companies. Management really walks the walk with regards to "personal" improvement. They recently agreed to match half of the employee's cost to join a local fitness center. Focused is the best way to describe Management's style. Farmland is really about their "People" and the "Team". Results focused is the common theme and everyone plays to win. I feel fortunate that I have yet to meet anyone here that I don't like, everyone is pleasant and enjoys showing up to give 110%.

    Cons

    Progressive for a meat company there are still some outdated ideas at work here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the people, they are your greatest strength.
