Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Smithfield Foods full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Room for advancement, don't need much of an education to work there.

Cons

Employees are inhumane towards the animals, the supervisors do nothing about it. Many regulations are broken. The health insurance is awful.

Advice to Management

Keep a closer eye on the lower level management (ie. Barn supervisors,etc). They show favoritism as well as allow employees to abuse the animals. Very inhumane, they know when they are going to be inspected and they "clean-up their act" at the last minute.
