    I have been working at Grupo Bimbo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The money and the benefits.

    Cons

    Everything else. This company has reduced its fleet and staff of drivers I must assume due to the reduced interest in bread and sweet goods consumption by the public. The bakery is no longer the ultra clean and bright environment it once was just a few years ago. Dirty, unkept and poor lighting make it very depressing. Newer employees walk into this filth not knowing what it once looked like. Hours and days of work are the most horrible in the in trucking. Many are irregular and scattered around the clock and the week. Supervision is worn out and don't agree on things.

    Advice to Management

    You've exchanged the quality of the product from excellent to mediocre to survive and cut the cost of cleaning for the same reason. Instead of figuring on cutting costs for survival, perhaps you might rethink your business model and reinvent yourselves into something more than just a baking company. Johnson and Johnson, Proctor and Gamble, R J Reynolds would have collapsed if the had not done so to mention a few. Your company is growing only because others want out so you buy them on the cheap. The industry is dying out. The bottom is yet to be seen.

    Monitor lower level management. Encourage and embrace impute from the front line. Offer advancement and co-ownership by mentoring and training.

    High volume of workload
    Unfriendly facilities (I worked on their first plant, Corporate offices & Shared Services Center) We always had problems with space, old & unsecure facilities)
