    I have been working at G.L Mezzetta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has really evolved over the last few years. Not only do they make a great product, but they are really growing their culture and living their beliefs in connection, vibrance and opportunity, etc. They are hiring some creative and outgoing people who are really adding value to the company and are making a big impact on the business. They continue to grow, so there is opportunity to grow your career with the company.

    Cons

    Their benefits need to be more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    I think Management is doing a great job to empower the employees to make a difference in helping the company move forward. They are investing and training and development and working to drive change that will make the company successful.

    I have been working at G.L Mezzetta full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mezzetta is an exciting, energetic, fun place to work. There are several employees who have been with the company for many years and are like family. The company is growing and there are lots of new opportunities.

    Cons

    Like any company, if you do not fit into the culture it is not a good fit for you. Mezzetta departments work well as teams to make the best possible decisions. If you do not work well with others then you will not be happy here.

    Pros

    Category leader that prides themselves on hiring the best & constant innovation coming from the food scientists.

    Cons

    Some can't handle the culture so it's either a fit, or it's not. If you like to win this is the place to go. Just be prepared to devote yourself to the game.

    I have been working at G.L Mezzetta full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Mezzetta is a team of passionate individuals that supports and encourages entrepreneurship. You will have the opportunity to make a difference and be recognized for it! Product quality and people are clearly top of the list.

    Cons

    Not really a Con but should be looked at as an opportunity. Mezzetta is a small family owned company that continues to grow. Senior leadership has the passion to think like a larger CPG company as they achieve a national distribution and strive to be best in class. With that comes continued change as the company seeks out new paths to drive brand awareness and continued success in competitive categories.

    Advice to Management

    Extend Change Management classes

    Pros

    Mezzetta is growing fast, both in sales and its organization. Standards and expectations are high. we don't always make it but even results we are unhappy with are still solid results from a growing company. The company focuses strongly on culture and is clear that they want to be a top employer.

    Cons

    With growth comes change and some of the change is a bit dysfunctional. Knowing what you want out of culture and knowing how to get there are not always the same. The co0mpany has had some fits and starts around culture change and may not be fully on the right path yet but they will get there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on change but slow the pace a bit. Whenever we have a good idea or new way to help, give it a cooling off period to let it sink in and clarify before moving forward
