    I worked at McKee Foods as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong Executive leadership
    Highly focused
    Treat employees more than fair
    Super nice culture - family/life balance
    Fun products

    Cons

    No room to advance or it will take a long time
    Tenure is valued over talent. Lots of "lifers" sitting in chairs.
    Slow to move and not nimble in decision making
    Talent vacuum can be heard as great people leave for other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Stir up the mix and take risks.
    Eliminate the "leaners" and promote the "lifters".
    Look beyond tenure and look at fresh talent

    I worked at McKee Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They tend to do well in bad economic times. People will always buy cheap snack cakes.
    Stability, many long-term employees.
    Decent pay scale.

    Cons

    While OD McKee was alive, and while his sons were directly involved in the company, innovation was encouraged and praised. Once the third generation took over, OD's catchphrase "There's a better way. Let's find it!" has been quietly set aside.
    Nowadays, it's run just like any other heartless, clueless megacorporation, with the exception that (seriously) God is claimed to be its ultimate guiding force.

    Advice to Management

    OD made that company what it is. Get back to encouraging and rewarding innovative thinking. Let the grandkids quit thinking like MBA's and get back to thinking like small business owners.
