I have been working at Wilbur-Ellis full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good People, Determined, makes you feel like you are important. Some of the nicest people to work with yet.

Cons

Sometimes it is too large to get things done quick on small scale. Seems like sometimes you have to jump through a bunch of hoops.

    I worked at Wilbur-Ellis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a profitable, diversified company with some really good, experienced people. The work environment was professional, but we had fun too.

    Cons

    There are 3 distinct divisions and they don't all communicate well. The Project Management group was new and had too much turn over. They also had trouble managing projects.

    Advice to Management

    Try to identify true leaders for management openings. It's a pretty flat corporate structure, so the managers make a big difference.

    I worked at Wilbur-Ellis full-time

    Pros

    Some co-workers are good to work with

    Cons

    Corporate lets field managers get away with anything. When I was there I was pretty sure there was stealing going on but apparently corporate he is too afraid of those guys since they've been there so long and are 50 somethings. WE reputation will continue to decline in the forage industry unless they go back to the values before the 1980s.

    Advice to Management

    Review your field managers and don't be afraid of them. There are a lot of younger agribusiness professionals with college degrees who won't steal and may get you the industry share WE use to have.
