    I worked at POM Wonderful full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its a great place to work for if your mind set is to be punctual and be a body where needed. Their season is during the holidays so you have $ during that time is its greatest point.

    Cons

    They do not know real talent or how to use it if it hit them with a MAC truck. Their mind set is if it is not their idea, its not a good idea. I was told you work for us, we don't work for you, when I needed a weekend off. If you want to make a difference for a company and not just collect a paycheck, this is not the place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to talent right in front of you and instead of worrying about your bonuses, spend company $ to benefit the company. Lead by example. A high level degree with no experience is no better than 10 years of experience with no degree. Learn how to squeeze every ounce of ideas out of both scenarios to benefit the company and not fatten your ego.

    Pros

    entrepreneurial company with good opportunities to learn new skills; highly intelligent senior management; great products and a strong brand name.

    Cons

    unstructured environment so you often are not sure what process to follow; top-down driven company; leadership does a poor job communicating with the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the companies goals and objectives better with employees. Check employee morale more often and try to build better morale within the company.

    Pros

    - Definitely a lot of Smart People
    - The Work Environment is casual
    - Pay is at least market value
    - Hours not too bad

    Cons

    - There are not many opportunities for career growth
    - It is obvious that many managers do not have much management experience or know how to handle employees

    Advice to Management

    I think there needs to be a greater focus on training, not just on job processes, but on how to manage employees.
