    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Smithfield Foods full-time

    Pros

    A steady paycheck. They say the right things, but don't follow through by doing the right things. There are some very nice people that work there; however, those are the ones that they will dump the majority of the work load on without the equivalent benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity and the inability to move to different positions based on key personal not allowing it because of personal differences. All the good talent leaves, and rightly so. All benefits are fairly skimpy, so don't expect a lot in a compensation program.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. Most quality heads towards the door when they are limited on expansion opportunities or advancement opportunities.
