I worked at McLane Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits standard of a large corporation, good. Stable business model

Cons

Low pay, NO time off the first year. Then after 1st year that they only give you 10 measly days until year 7! Low morale with other employees, not good at showing appreciation for hard work. Not interested in keeping employees happy, everything to them is about the numbers and making them. Frugality at its finest with no room for error. Employees are expected to work and work with little or no appreciation whatsoever. No incentive to move up or stay with the company with lack of monetary compensation or vacation time until much later. They want people who have no life outside of work and live to work for them, and expect to be thankful that they work for their "great" company and purpose.

Advice to Management

GIVE YOUR PEOPLE TIME OFF!!!! People need to spend more time with their families. They are not slaves! Pay them for the hard work they give you, tell them you appreciate them. You will not have loyal employees if you keep treating them like dirt.

    Pros

    Good 401 K Plan. Human Resource Staff very solid.Very focused on providing superior customer service to clientele.Owned by Warren Buffet,fiscally sound.

    Cons

    Like many large companies in today's economy,you are asked to produce more,without receiving fiscal compensation for your efforts.Ultra-Conservative ideology.Very sterile work environment. Rarely,received recognition for job well done.Kept under constant microscope,no training for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees more humanely,not like robots,especially those that work outside the facility.
