    I have been working at Fresh Del Monte Produce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits package
    Competitive pay
    Diversity
    Experience on global operations
    Nice corporate location
    Pros could be highlighted if Cons were not so strongly noted.
    There is some very knowledgeable and very good hearted people working there.

    Cons

    2+ years paying for street parking before getting a spot.
    Management is being worked on and changes seem to be for good. But it will take long.
    Each department works and rules very independently.. Some cons in a dept may not happen in others.

    Advice to Management

    It will take many years for new Management to get to the ugly-money wasting corners. Hopefully the good ones have enough patience to wait for the wonders and changes to come. Del Monte quit being a family oriented company very long time ago.. Now its just a company formed by a lot of unappreciated sad employees with terribly damaging trust issues and no team spirit.

    The People/employees at a local level are the best professional & caring people.

    Upper mgmt has little to no regard for humane life. They only care about their budgets. Your just a $ sign to them. Not a good company to work for temporary or perm. Or any other way.

    Advice to Management

    Head for the hills if they call you for an interview. You will never advance or be advanced.

    I worked at Fresh Del Monte Produce full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Insurance
    Beautiful Location - Coral Gables
    Good Coworkers

    Cons

    Del Monte Fresh Produce is a global company and has the potential to be a leader in team member management concerns, BUT upper management continually chooses to take the low road with employees in order to show a larger profit to the shareholders.

    During my years at Del Monte there were several massive layoffs. The last one was in 2015 when they reduced the work staff by 15% across the board. Each Department was forced to cut back. The workload resulting from the layoffs was then given to the already overworked staff. The staff that remained were instructed to come early, stay late, etc as needed to insure the work is done.

    At the same time, the company is increasing the workload with new projects and new facilities around the world.

    The methods used in the layoff process cause undue stress to all involved. I saw several people who had been with the company many years (one person was less than a year from retirement) who were laid off while others who had just started with the company were not.

    Middle management seems to have genuine concern for the overworked, overstressed employees; however, upper management does not.

    If you are considering a position at this company, my advice is RUN in the other direction.

    Advice to Management

    To Management I would say - You are losing good, talented employees on a regular basis because of your bad policies and lack of concern. When I resigned I was asked if more money or a better "position" would make me change my mind. NO! But concern from the top levels of management would have. Get to know your people and start appreciating that without them you would not have this company.
