I worked at Sara Lee Food & Beverage full-time (More than 3 years)

Should have kept fresh bread division, just a matter of time before BBU dissolves Sara Lee name from fresh bread selection.

    I worked at Sara Lee Food & Beverage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of access to a lot of great tools and systems. The culture as Sara Lee was wonderful, especially under the CEO Brenda Barnes. It was a work hard, play hard environment and we all worked hard. When she resigned, things went down hill.

    Cons

    It's a popularity contest to get where you need to go. In some departments, if you were a women..forget about being respected.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. Take some people skills courses.


  2. "Started when it was Superior Coffee, went down hill rapidly after purchase by Sara Lee."

    I worked at Sara Lee Food & Beverage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sara Lee had I thought, a solid reputation, however, in the long run it did not translate from a super market customer, to a wholesale client.

    Cons

    For some reason they were convinced that the company could be run from the office, and they would never listen, or take any advice from the field reps. They also had a habit of bringing in people from out of town, who would talk about the way we did it...fill in the blank.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your market before you become a self professed expert, get out of the office for something besides golf.
