    I have been working at Hormel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company with a long and strong financial history, plenty of projects going on so there are different areas of the business to get involved with, good bonus potential, joint profit sharing, pension plan

    Cons

    IT department is very outdated in regards to what technology is available, hard to get lateral movement within department as positions don't tend to open frequently, poor vacation allotment, Austin is a retirement community of about 25,000 with Minneapolis about two hours north and Rochester 40 minutes northeast. If you are a millennial this will be a tough sell.
