    I have been working at McCormick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, team environment. Excellent stability and stable company with benefits. Ability to move around and get lots of exposure. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    A bit antiquated, needs to work on company persona to attract new talent. Definitely needs to work on decision making as it pertains to timelines, it takes forever to get direction (aka decisions to be made).

    Advice to Management

    Get people with fresh perspectives and actually listen to them. Hire people instead of using agencies for everything creative, it creates a disconnect and breeds dissatisfaction with the level of work.

    I worked at McCormick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very 9-5 atmosphere. Most staffers didn't even have their email sent to their phones. People truly ended their work day at 5 and didn't think about the office again until arriving the next morning.

    Cons

    A lot of the staff have worked at McCormick for 10-plus years (some more like 15-20) which results in a very antiquated way of doing business. It's not really a very creative place, nothing is cutting edge.

    There is also no room for advancement. You pick your own title when you start, and that's the title you'll have for the duration of your employment.

    Decent co-workers. Checks didn't bounce. Lots of good people passed through the agency.

    Get your salary on the way in as raises are practically nonexistent. Nobody advances their lot in life there.

    Retire.Sell why you can.

    I worked at McCormick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some fantastic folks working for the company
    Very flexible schedule
    Holiday party
    Bonuses

    Cons

    Excessive micro-management
    Raises are non-existent
    Benefits were not competitive or negotiable
    Insurance is way too expensive
    Bonuses are NOT performance based
    Long wait for 401k vesting

    Advice to Management

    Six people cycled through a single [small but very important] team in less than a year--five of them being in just the last six months. It should be clear that there are problems, not only in that department, but going on up the chain there, too. Please, for the sake of all current staff, do something to end this trend.
