      Honestly, nothing! it's such a great company. I've been so impressed with the company's culture and it's willingness to prioritize their people.

      Pros

      Benefits, benefits, benefits. Great PTO for corporate employees and amazing parental leave benefits. Not overly structured with red tape everywhere. If you have an idea you can roll with it and be heard.

      Cons

      Went from a mom and pop to a global brand and lots of politics with the good old boys/ boys club. Lots of acquisitions have caused Ferrara to not follow one clear policy/ alignment across the organization.

      Pros

      Ferrara was the most diverse organization that I ever encountered. Diversity and community service were important to their mission. The workforce is younger and open to new initiatives.

      Cons

      The workforce is younger and there was too much focus on supposed "generational" attitudes. I found this to be off-putting.
