    I have been working at Grecian Delight Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Grecian is a strong, solid standing company in regards to financials. The company is is seeing a large amount of growth outside of the Mediterranean segment in the bakery and sauce category. The senior leadership is highly involved in day to day activities and striving to move the company forward with a good solid team.

    Cons

    At times, slow to react but improving daily, In the past, Grecian has had some employee turnover but a lot of new positions have also been created.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to focus on manufacturing quality products and develop new products to take to the marketplace. Grecian should work toward being the gold standard of companies in the Food business not just the Mediterranean category.

    Pros

    Great family owned company and the family is great.

    Cons

    Watch out for their New VP of Sales, he has been there for six months and has fired everyone below him, and is not hiring and turning the new hires. He operates with his larger than life EGO and believes he is the ultimate solution. My thought is that he creates the drama and the issues, so that he can maintain Job Security.

    Advice to Management

    Might want to take a look at the individual you have running your sales......

    Pros

    For the most part a great group of people to work with!

    Cons

    A few high ranking employees seem to be running the show....if they don't like you, you have no opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone may not agree with everything doesn't mean they are not beneficial to the company. Hear them out....maybe their ideas do make sense.
