    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Murphy-Brown for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits . Good starting point if you have an agricultural degree or looking to obtain CDL while getting paid for it. Does reimburse for some college coursework.

    Cons

    Only real way to advance at this employer is if you know someone or you came from one of their prefered colleges.(VA Tech and NC State). You will basically live at work unless you are a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to reward the employees that are the actual ones meeting production goals. The managers get all the glory while most of the lower level incentives have been stripped

      I worked at Murphy-Brown

      Pros

      Decent pay, great co-workers, helpful management, lots of holidays off, company parties, awesome benefits to employees, and all around great place to work.

      Cons

      If you work in the barns you do not get paid overtime. They only pay you straight time. However, office personnel get paid overtime.

      Advice to Management

      Start paying the farm working people overtime as they are working long hours and spending time away from their families.

      I worked at Murphy-Brown full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Awesome benefits and good pay for the area. General manager of the company Michael Rainwater makes you feel appreciated , no one below him however does

      Cons

      I honestly wish I could put less stars. This place is a joke, the upper management let's farm leaders get away with whatever the want. Then the complex managers come in once ever week or two with a piece of paper and write down every bad thing that they van about you and never tell you that you are doing anything correctly. SOP'S change weekly and you never know what you are supposed to do because you have an manager...
