Pros

The salary is fair. Some really great people. Interesting enforced training, as in educational, but outdated. Very clear about sharing upcoming company changes.

Cons

In the box thinking. Too conservative. Unorganized, no system in place, rely too heavily on human memory. Some departments have high turn over and theres not enough consistency to make sense of things.

Advice to Management

Stop pigeonholing people and look internally when hiring. Put more oragnizational processes in place to make sense and provide consistency. Get rid of the old school hierarchy, this isn't 1950 anymore.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    They take pride in their employees and take care in hiring people that fit the Smucker culture. People are wonderful to work with and are always helping and considerate of one another. Everyone was very friendly!!

    Cons

    The workload became extremely intense with multiple acquisitions and management was very hesitant to offer any solutions on how to handle everything that was expected. Employees can only handle so much work and be expected to do it at the high level that is to be maintained.

    Advice to Management

    Employees work hard to make the company successful. They can only do so much. Take this into consideration and hire more help!
