    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.

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime, very friendly staff. Family-like atmosphere. Overall a solid foot-in-the-door job.

    Cons

    Seems like there is, somewhat, limited upward mobility within this particular location. The company has a wide network of facillities though.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Safe clean work environment. Uniforms and steel toes are paid for. Profit sharing is available after one year of employment.

    Cons

    There is a very large gap between office workers and employees on the production floor. Communications between the two tend to break down

    Advice to Management

    Make production workers feel as though their efforts are more appreciated. Connect the two areas with more interaction.
