    Advice to Management

    Hard to give advice to the 3G management they have their own culture. Let's see if they can make it work with the millennials as they age get married and want to move to the suburbs for better schools and easier commutes which I am not sure really matters because they just bring in new bodies fresh out of school. Get back to acquiring and growing the top line, the CEO seems like he has lost his swagger in the CPG industry.

    Pros

    If you're young and ambitious you can gain a lot of experience in 1 to 2 years here. It is very fast pace and a lot of exposure opprotunities

    Pros

    People and great learning opportunities

    Cons

    A 10/12 hour day is not long enough. They constantly are requiring people give up their scheduled vacation so they can work and "support" the company. People are mandated to work 7 days a week until management decides other wise. When you have to leave on time, so you can pick up your child from day care you are told to "drive them an hour to their grandparent's house to drop them off then come back" or constantly wondering where the child's other parent is and why they can't step in and pick them up so you can just remain at work. Some hourly positions require you to be on call at home - and hand out your personal number because the work phone doesn't work at your house - and not get paid for any of it, unless you step foot onto company property. There's favoritism, one person doesn't do an assigned task and they're in HR getting written up, another employee disregards the exact same task, and it's "oh, well, better get it done tomorrow then".

    Advice to Management

    If you want people to stay, you have to allow them time outside of work to rest and do things that make them happy. If they're not happy, your quality of work and the overall moral will take a huge dive.
