Pros

I can't speak for the manufacturing operations, but in salaried business process areas, it is a relatively good company to work for. They are very good at hiring and retaining excellent people, so there is plenty of talent and a "nice" atmosphere is valued and maintained.

Cons

There is more than the typical amount of management dysfunction. Silos of authority are sacrosanct causing logical absurdities.

Advice to Management

Hire some good management consultants to totally redesign the management structures of the company, then implement at least most of the recommendations.

Centralize Information Technology authority and implement a cohesive IT strategy throughout the company.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    Profit sharing, great 401k benefits and some good people. Not that much positives.

    Cons

    There are a few challenges working here. You have to keep your head down and your mouth shut. People will stab you in the back because there threaten by you or you just make them look lazy. Too many people doing one job, you don't need several people to do one job, really need to do some restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously observe the office environment. Reevaluate the managers. Be sure that everyone does truly respect each others differences. Stop being stuck in the past and look to progress.
