    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You can make good money if you can put in 70+ hours a week on a regular basis. Tasty products and fun people interaction.

    Cons

    No vacation time until you put in 1 years worth of 70+ hour weeks 5 days a week. Along with that, any day you need to take off you have to make up. You cannot take an unpaid day off. Schwan's used to be about the employee and the families. It has slowly deteriorated over time to be strictly about monetary gain.

    Advice to Management

    LGM's I know that you lost power with the new pay program, but do your best to be flexible like you could before with your employees. Get the point to upper management that no unpaid days off is quite unrealistic for the average worker.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There isn't a good reason to work for this company.

    Cons

    They take, take, and take from employees, and expect more, more, and more from them. No appreciation what so ever. Upper management do not know what they are doing. Employees are not treated equal. This privatly held company gets away with murder the way it treats employees. It is screaming for a union.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee. Your most valuable asset are your people. Start treating them all fairly and equal, and things might turn around. If you continue the B/S you won't have employyes left to do the work.
