Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Week off after Christmas. The older employees are wonderful but the newer people are cut throat and nasty.

Cons

Management has hidden agendas and change their minds often after making decisions. Career advancement determined primarily by politics. It is a "Yes Sir" company.

Advice to Management

Show some respect for the people you hire to make sound decisions.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People always need food, and in economic downturns, they cook more - the company seems pretty stable. The people are very friendly, the company cares about employees, and is well-managed. You can get lots of positive feedback, even from upper management, if you do a good job and stand out. They have acquired quite few brands since I worked there, which seems like a good sign, but I don't know how the integrations went.

    Cons

    The food industry can be a bit old-fashioned and McCormick is not a marketing or innovation leader. Company culture is somewhat conservative.

    Advice to Management

    Value innovation, creativity, and intelligence.
