Pros

Hard hot work, it is like getting paid to work out. I lost 50 pounds in one year.

Cons

A culture of blame. If a problem occurs the way to fix it at Maple Leaf is to blame it on one person, rather than find a way to keep that problem from happening once more.

Advice to Management

Try to prevent mistakes by changing operating procedures. Stop blaming people for mistakes, and use the mistakes as opportunities to fix a problem in production. I saw the same mistakes occur on all seven production lines over and over during my year. No changes in operating procedures ever occurred, but many employees were blamed for the recurring mistakes.
Also senior management at the Roanoke Plant did not live up to the companies core values.
