    I have been working at McKee Foods as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family owned
    Not publicly traded
    Amazing Culture
    Profit-sharing bonus

    Cons

    The company is not as forward-thinking as others in its industry. Not as straight forward as I would like. After a year in my internship, my hours were cut. No heads up given and it was all to avoid having to give me insurance, which I didn't need anyhow. However I have learned some great skills that I will be able to use in my career position.

    Advice to Management

    Cast your net far and wide for talent in you office departments. There are some really talented people out there like myself who work hard and are in need of opportunity.
