    Pros

    The company has a very good work culture. The people here at all levels making coming into the office something I actually look forward to. The company is large enough to have scale and great benefits, but still sized so each employee can be heard and recognized. If you thrive on learning, change, and want personal and professional growth, Synoptek is ideal.

    Cons

    None that I can think of at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Great product, company values, work ethic, family business

    Cons

    Hard to change departments, average benefits, does not have a good program in place for individual development and career development.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the dual career pathway so that its more feasible and make it easier to gain more exposure to other areas of work.

    I worked at Leprino Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None at all!! Negativity plaques this place! Such a divide it’s sad

    Cons

    Everything about this place is a con except HR and safety management. Everyone else is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Watch who you put in charge.. a lot of your group leaders and trainers especially in cheeseline are miserable people who don’t really want to help. Trash all the way around
