    I worked at Gate Gourmet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will learn alot because there is little to no training so you kind of have to figure things out for yourself.

    Cons

    implicit bias within the regional office, its like a dead zone with zombies working quietly in their cubicles. Knowone's happy with there job. basic benefits package, very expensive, no extra perks. No employee hand book to govern policies or behavior, so there is a lot of unethical and inconsistent behaviors from Senior Managers. Poor performers are promoted, and behavior and errors go unchecked. Very toxic and bougie environment. Employee claims of discrimination, nepotism, and unethical behavior across the organization go ignored, or partially investigated. In 2020, global company of this size without a diversity program is alarming. Very high turnover at senior manager and direct levels. Low pay Poor benefits program No perks really, other than needing a job. High stress environment Drama and gossip

    I worked at Gate Gourmet for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Mid level management is caring and competent.

    Cons

    Very, very poor leadership and upper management. Revolving door of senior leadership. Low margin business model results in low pay, turnover, low morale and overall a very poor work environment. How much would you pay a company to board chips and soft drinks? Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Negotiate from a position of strength and invest in your assets.

    I worked at Gate Gourmet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No micro management. Most of management is easy going. Management sometimes listens to certain employee's suggestions. Some of the staff is easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Unorganized, a serious lack of training, low pay for what is expected of employees, outdated equipment, not enough employees to cover shifts due to low retention rate, some ghetto employees, low awareness of sanitation policies, low to no raises.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a new member of management to train all the employees thoroughly and oversee proper food sanitation and handling from the production team.
