    Great team and well led, experienced manager. dedicated BA, QA, Support teams as well as a full time UI/UX designer. Pay/benefits are outstanding, Bonuses are unbelievably good!

    BA's are probably the least experienced out of the group. Infrastructure team is located in Europe so its a hassle to work out meeting times. PTO time is not much

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Louis Dreyfus Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Genuinely 'open-door' company in that anyone can access the CEO, for example, by email or chat.

    Cons

    Antagonist culture that is internally believed to be a strength but is just vitriolic, tribalistic, and petty. Communication is opaque which is symptomatic of missing/poorly executed strategy at every level of management. Capable employees leave for better opportunities and those left are promoted through attrition. IT is the worst I've ever seen. Depressingly horizontal management structure.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Focus on your core capabilities.

    Pros

    Days off through the week - decent starting pay-jobs are easy

    Cons

    You will never get a raise and if you transfer departments, they will lower your pay considerably. Women be prepared to have bosses sexually harass you and while they are constantly writing you up, the manager will take classes. Eventually you will lose your job and they will go on to harass the next one. Managers constantly and consistently berate, cuss, and throw things at employees - extremely toxic atmosphere
