    Pros

    If you are looking a place to get a job title, a paycheck or a place where growth is not an important feature this is the place for you.

    Cons

    If you want a career, terrible place. Management tends to keep people in place by not encouraging development by way of education, or job specific certification. Lack of direction or expectations. Employee was struck in the work place by manager - HR reaction: "I'm sorry that happened". Unsafe work environment. Awful yearly review system, don't try to be a performer. Example of Goals for operators. "Show... up to work on time." How do you exceed at this goal? No coming in early is not considered good behavior. Untrained Middle band of managers who don't know how to treat people like adults, only as tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Some Change at the executive level, they don't know what actually happens at the in the silos that report up to there. Advice - aggressively develop and train your middle managers to be managers or replace them.

    I have been working at Pamlab full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    all ways something new to learn opportunity for growth many shift options decent benefits

    Cons

    managers in this department are not well organized, you get two different answers for the same question. there is no dedicated trainer the manager train new employees in between their other duties and there is so much to learn they don't consider you out of training for a full year. there are standard operating procedures but in this department, there are always two or three exceptions to the rules you have to... learn simply by experience. the pay is not nearly equivalent to the tasks required of you. As a client service rep you will be required to not only do your job but often times other departments work as well.

    Advice to Management

    Get a dedicated trainer. don't just try and train people in between your other duties as a manager. Get on the same page. If someone asks two different managers the same question you should be able to give the same or similar answers.

    I worked at Pamlab full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many of the people I worked with but most of them are gone now. Eric, the former CEO left long ago. Nestle didn't have a clue and ran off many of people who made it a success. Nestle has since sold what's left of the company. Great products! Good folks in the manufacturing group.

    Cons

    Not sure the damage done can be fix by the nestle appointed management left, especially in finance. Of course, sr finance always was operationally clueless anyway. Everyone else was to blame.

    Advice to Management

    Sell it back to the original owner and then resign!
