Distribution system sometimes can hurt our business with negative distributors (in 3 reviews)
I can't speak for the manufacturing operations, but in salaried business process areas, it is a relatively good company to work for. They are very good at hiring and retaining excellent people, so there is plenty of talent and a "nice" atmosphere is valued and maintained.
There is more than the typical amount of management dysfunction. Silos of authority are sacrosanct causing logical absurdities.
Advice to Management
Hire some good management consultants to totally redesign the management structures of the company, then implement at least most of the recommendations.
Centralize Information Technology authority and implement a cohesive IT strategy throughout the company.
Good wages. Medical Benifits. Family owned and operated. Christian owned.
I can not think of any.
I have been working at McKee Foods as an intern (Less than a year)
Its a smaller place so its pretty friendly. Working in I/S is pretty chill for the most part. A lot of the full time employees are older and some are set in their ways, others are not (technologywise). There are quite a few interns that bring youth to the company. Decent pay for interns. Free little debbies all day.
Too many free little debbies. You'll get fat.
They don't have many open positions for developers. Most people stay forever at McKee making it hard for new positions to open up.

Strong Executive leadership
Treat employees more than fair
Super nice culture - family/life balance
No room to advance or it will take a long time
Tenure is valued over talent. Lots of "lifers" sitting in chairs.
Slow to move and not nimble in decision making
Talent vacuum can be heard as great people leave for other opportunities.
Advice to Management
Stir up the mix and take risks.
Eliminate the "leaners" and promote the "lifters".
Look beyond tenure and look at fresh talent
I worked at McKee Foods full-time (More than 8 years)
The laboratory was one of the better labs for a food company with decent equipment and room. Things were usually kept busy and the work varied quite a bit. Company has very good values when it comes to hiring practices, running the company, and providing benefits.
The staffing was reduced increasing workloads to stressful levels at one point. Use to have more freedoms to explore projects, but time was restricted by the workload. Little growth opportunity for growth without changing job description.

didn't have any promotions
most of the supervisors will not listen to you and others will make up things to get ahead

Good place to work and good schedules.
Sometimes overtime may be required
Not a bad place to work. Benifits are good. Pay is OK. Not near what it was ten years ago bit overall still not badn
Have started a lean journey. Cutting staffing. Trying to cut corners
They care about people , open door policy, good benefits, helpful teammates, guaranteed Saturday's off or more likely full weekend off
Overtime season, worrying too much about numbers, some employees think they own the company because they are working for 20-25 years

The company is privately owned, so from my job it does not seem like we live or die by the numbers. We don't have shareholders constantly wanting their returns. The work is fair, good benefits, great emphasis on health and incentives for it. I will never have to work a Saturday since they are Seventh Day Adventist company.
For salaried their are no clear steps to get raises or move up, but for hourly employees their are specifics to receive more pay.
