    Pros

    Former Sara Lee Corp. It was great people, location, CEO was great.

    Cons

    After 18 months of divestitures, reorgs, the change ran down morale.

    A few attitudes within marketing. But most of those people left.

    Pros

    This company has good benefits and extra incentives.

    Cons

    Seniority employees take advantage of having this privilege. They don't work as hard as new employees.

    Advice to Management

    They should take a look at their long term employees. Double check their workload to make sure they are doing as much work as they say they are doing. Especially the office and other executive offices....Listen to the new employees and utilize their new ideas, instead of always using the same ideas....
