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

    Pros

    By and large McCormick employees are hard working and committed to the company. The company treats employees well with a great range of benefits. Importantly, leaders are down to earth and accessible to all levels of employees. Also, McCormick has a product portfolio that employees can be proud of.

    Cons

    People can be slow to make decisions, too often waiting for all to "buy in." The company needs to build on its legacy of employee friendly environment and be more innovative for the times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget one of the company's mottos that "the employee on the job knows best how to get it done." Often the smartest people are on your team and not the high priced consultants from out of town.

    Pros

    McCormick attracts passionate, smart people who work hard. The quality of the product is top notch and employees and teams work hard to ensure this.

    Cons

    Pros

    Its a big company and they can pay you well

    Cons

    If you are in HR or are considering a the Plant HR Manager position at McCormick, I recommend that you pass it up. They have fired so many HR Mangers. Every time they get one in they let them go. After you have termed that many good people, you have to assume its the company and not the people.

    Advice to Management

    Support the people you hire.
