Pros

Great company. Good Pay. Ample ability to move up if you are willing to relocate. Great industry reputation amongst peers.

Cons

Relocation is a necessity. Headquarters are not based in a major city but in Austin Minnesota. Very conservative and risk averse company.

Advice to Management

Move some of the corporate jobs such as marketing to Minneapolis. This will help keep and attract a more talented work force.

    Pros

    Great people, great products, great responsibility. Hormel provides opportunities to people who want to work to be successful. Then, you are rewarded for the success you achieve. Upper management are easy to talk with and approachable. They are also great leaders in a very difficult industry.

    Cons

    Working conditions can be challenging where you are dealing with the temperature of a food processing plant. However, anything easy in life typically does not provide the rewards, career growth, and opportunities that Hormel does for its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management has always invested time and resources into their employees which has made the company successful. Please continue to produce, at a low cost, value added products to the consumer allowing you to retain your competitive advantage and giving you the opportunity to provide people a great place to work.

    Pros

    The long term benefits are the best that I have encountered. They offer, for salaried employees, a base pay, year end bonus, profit sharing (rolled over into your 401k), 401k, stock options, pension plan. They also have pretty good medical, vision, dental, .... benefits as well. Multiple opportunities to give back to the community and there are multiple occurrences for employee engagement.

    Cons

    Very long hours when working in the plant. As an engineer, I spent 11-12 hours a day at work which makes my personal life non-existent M-F. There is a general lack of feedback from your manager as to if you are progressing properly especially if you come straight out of school or if this is a career change.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with those individuals that are starting fresh with the company. If the individual is coming in as entry-level, they need feedback
