    I worked at McCormick & Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits/discounts are good and you have opportunities to buy stock. 2 weeks off paid for Christmas.

    Cons

    Hours that you are forced to work short noticed. That process is not followed by book standard. New hires don’t get the proper help needed. 6months with a trainer turns into 3. No plans set in place for loss training time. Highly underpaid and dangerous work. Team leaders never are in work areas for advice. New hires have to leave there post to find a more experienced worker to give managerial advice. Team leaders are...

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on with new hires and their training. Be able to be located for advice. Ask to see how workers feel and how their work is going on the floor

    I worked at McCormick & Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Week off between Christmas and New Year’s Day with pay / do not use. Vacation days. Legacy McCormick front line and middle management still knowledgeable and in enough numbers to keep the company running.

    Cons

    New management team place higher value on their personal financial success and stock price versus the CP McCormick 2-4-1 spirit. CP is spinning in his grave right now. Churn and burnout are rampant and direction changes daily. Trust in senior management is so low they do not even conduct an employee satisfaction survey anymore. Just top down direction. Senior management is from outside and only promote people they...

    Advice to Management

    Easy..... this is McCormick. Read the Power of People by CP McCormick. Execute using his philosophy. Employees come first and will take care of the financial performance if you trust and value them.

    I worked at McCormick & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good and higher that the median pay for this region.

    Cons

    Although the company believes in diversity, they don't practice inclusion. It is a very hard place for minorities to work. I wouldn't recommend anyone to work there. Too many cliques and "bad girls clubs".

    Advice to Management

    Management is the driving force behind many problems. Those that aren't, know about it. If they're not willing to step up against it, that makes them complicit to the ethical dilemmas of the company.

    Pros

    Generally a fairly positive work environment

    Cons

    Growth only exists for certain roles groomed for leadership. If you're not hired directly into those roles, expect to stay put.

    Pros

    McCormick is company that allow a person to be apart of business aspect

    Cons

    McCormick is a high performance environment . A employee has to learn thier job and eventually start doing the work at a fast pace. Especially when the prior shift suffered down time due to a mechanical error. The next shift will be challenged with meeting the P.R. Percentage for that day. The production lines speed is increased to meet the process responsibility.
