    Pros

    The culture is fantastic if you are looking for a place that invites a good work-life balance and good co-worker relationships.

    Cons

    Going through many changes, hopefully will keep culture and values

    Great culture, challenging career opportunities and work/life balance.

    Pros

    Truly some of the nicest, most down-to-earth people. Employees are very passionate about the business and the company. Lots of long-tenured employees - low turnover. Company runs lean, so many roles are very broad-based, with lots of cross-functional responsibility. There is a real opportunity everyday to see the direct impact of your work on the business. Company really "walks the walk" when they talk about caring about their employees. Employees work hard, but life outside of work is equally important and the company has a very high tolerance for and support of work/life balance. The company has a strong mission and purpose that is real and genuine.

    Cons

    The company is growing and is transitioning from a "small to big" company, which brings some growing pains. Because the company runs lean, people have to get more done with fewer resources. The organization structure is fairly flat - career growth happens more organically either in role or cross-functionally. In a lot of areas there are not defined career paths.

    A growth company sliding from a great to average place to work.

    Pros

    A company with long-term growth and stability, MOM also has a great culture of growth, improvement and support. Many long-term employees that really know their stuff and show the quality of the company.

    Cons

    There's a disconnect between the production floor and mid to upper management, leading many in production to have a poor attitude toward MOM and reminisce of the 'good old days.' Benefits and job security have taken a hit over the last couple of years.

    Malt-O-Meal was great, MOM Brands is not.

    Pros

    The working conditions are good. The team members care about doing a good job and making the best product in the market.

    Cons

    Way too many layers of management and too many staff positions who contribute nothing to the bottom line. Management is clueless and thinks that if they keep repeating the mantra of "a great place to great work" it will somehow be true. It WAS a great place to do great work. Now it is just a place to get a paycheck. No raises, no incentive pay, no Christmas bonus, No profit sharing...just keep repeating the mantra and hope the employees are stupid enough to believe it.

    Pros

    Comfortable office buildings. Great people. Still good benefits. Family private ownership. Great work life balance. Family oriented. Good relatively stable category in a stable food industry.

    Cons

    Inmates run the asylum in the Northfield plant. Long term employees feel they are entitled to everything. Over balance of sales with one customer.

    Used to be 5 Stars

    Pros

    Wonderful people, great products, friendly culture and an overwhelming drive from the floor to make the company better. Everyone on the wants to help.

    Cons

    The leadership team is not well chosen to lead this company. They are not necessarily bad, just bad for this company. They keep trying to change it into the same type of business that Malt-O-Meal used to beat. They have horribly disfigured a beautiful company that already had so much courage and spirit. Really sad. Murdered by ignorance.

    Was wonderful, still great if you are politically savvy and willing to play the game

    Pros

    Majority of people outside of management are great, they're willing to help in whatever way they can! There's a few really good managers, but unless they're willing to play the political game, they'll be squashed and not allowed to thrive. Work/life balance was always very good.

    Cons

    Management has changed dramatically over the past 8-10 years. Upper level management used to engage with employees on a personal level. Now employees are a number. Everyone is replaceable and dispensable, regardless of experience and knowledge of the company history. Benefits (health, profit sharing, 401k, etc). were almost impossible to find anywhere else. Very easy to find competitive and often able to improve by moving on. Very difficult to watch the company go from what it was to what it has become.

    Pros

    I like the overall outlook and goals, as well as values of the company. Management values the opinions of individuals on the front line of manufacturing in order to effectively streamlines and improve processes where possible. Also, noticed a high level of promotion from within.

    Cons

    Revenues come in from a handful of large buyers; sales are not diversified enough for my liking.
