I have been working at Keystone Foods full-time

Pros

Free lunches. Adding more words because of 5 word minimum. No other pros...

Cons

Very uptight environment wrapped around a frenzy of political issues. over 13 management members have left in the past 12 months and many more will be leaving.

The new management team is sweeping house to appease a broken relationship with their biggest customer, McDonald's.

The company is not looking to develop employees and retain them, just seeing how they can stop the bleeding.

    I have been working at Keystone Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This used to be a very people centered caring company, especially when the original owner was involved and his successor. Benefits are still better than most companies.

    Cons

    This company is moving toward a less people centered caring environment. Dealing with the new owners is challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Employees will work harder for you if you show appreciation for what they contribute. Start taking away those forms of appreciation and watch quality suffer.

    I worked at Keystone Foods full-time

    Pros

    Keystone Foods is very good at what they do, which is process high quality poultry and beef (think McNuggets and Quarterpounders) for the fast food industry, namely McDonalds (which is about 80% of their business).

    Cons

    The parent company, Marfrig of Brazil, is a VERY poorly run company. They make it up as they go along, which leads to dishonest and unethical practices. They have a "we are smarter than everyone else" attitude that doesn't mix well with others. The leader of Marfrig is imperialistic, with a management style stuck back in the early 50's. Indeed, this is a case of "the emperor has no clothes."

    Advice to Management

    Keystone's current senior management is what remains after the long time CEO, Jerry Dean, retired in 2011 and his successor, Larry McWilliams (a highly competent leader who spent several years at well run companies like Campbell Soup and Coke) was fired by Marfrig without warning in April of 2012. Those in place now are puppets to the Marfrig organization. Keystone Foods will not be a great place to work until Marfrig sells them off.
