I have been working at Ocean Spray full-time

Pros

Office environment relies heavily on department or field location, but there are good people in this company who make working at Ocean Spray a positive experience, in terms of day-to-day interactions with peers/co-workers.

Cons

The overall mood in the company is currently very poor. There is a severe rift between senior management and the rest of the company. Disagreement in ideas is met with screaming and yelling, literally. This is causing good people to leave and many more to openly discuss their own options to leave.

Advice to Management

Treat employees with respect or risk losing more.

    I worked at Ocean Spray full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits; pay and benefits were almost too good, and then I found out why....

    Cons

    Company is small but there's no communication. I saw some of the dumbest management decisions of my career made here. I used to shake my head all the time. Very reactive company not proactive. I used to think to myself that this company has made money in spite of itself, amazing it's still in business, and probably won't be for much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new systems, get rid of the stupid people, diversify the product line, get some people in who know what they're doing.
