    Pros

    Don't know yet . They just took over . Give it a few months and we will see what happens. Don't think much will change .

    Cons

    There are no cons at this time.. just started today. They bought out Reckitt benckiser. They seem nice. It can't be any worse that what we have. They need to look at our managers.

    Advice to Management

    There is none at this time

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits
    Vacation Time
    Promotes from within
    Above Average Pay

    Cons

    Factory workers have lots of mandatory overtime. Processes are dated and every work process moves very slowly. Upper management does not have much involvement with lower grade employees. Decent work/life balance for office workers, poor for factory workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees. Everyone is constantly being told to do more with less, employees who retire are not replaced if the workload can be pushed on to existing employees. Factory workers should not be forced to work 7 10 hour days because of poor planning.

    Pros

    McCormick does it's best to hold on to employees. There have been very little layoffs over the years. Most managers are fair and overall it's a great place to work. They have managed to continue to grow and stay relevant even in these trying economic times.

    Cons

    They do not do a good job with helping employees with career development. Getting promoted is challenging and rare. People can be in the same role for 10 + years with no advancement or good feedback onto what is required to move ahead. If you make the right connections, you may go far, but just good hard, quality work will not cut it.

    I worked at McCormick & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Finally adopted a great vacation and leave policy

    Cons

    Bullying, and support of bullies by HR and management, was a common theme. Nepotism still rules. Very little movement or opportunity; when a job is open, it's reserved for someone secretly, or being filled in Poland or India, not in the U.S. Non-performers get to hang around for unknown reasons. Older workers targeted for layoffs or false "PIPs"

    Advice to Management

    Realize how lucky you are to have some of the people you do, but that they have little reason to stay now that the pension is frozen.

    Pros

    Research and Development has a very good, creative, and supportive work environment.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical, lacks true motive to develop scientists.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the right people what they are worth, hire in people that are worth it, not just warm bodies to fill the seats while everyone else has to work harder to accommodate them.

    Keep up the good work
