    I worked at Perfetti Van Melle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best benefits I've ever had. Health & Wellness reimbursement program. Concierge services available. All major holidays off, including the preceding or following weekend. Ample PTO. Management seems to genuinely care about their employees health and well-being.

    Cons

    Can contract diabetes just breathing the air, lol j/k.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, and don't allow things to change to where the almighty dollar is more important than the people who make those dollars for you.

    I worked at Perfetti Van Melle full-time

    Pros

    Excellent culture and focus on the employees, the career was meaningful and the people were great to work with. Overall an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    It was a long commute for me (1 hour). There was some silo effect between departments/shifts, but they were working to break those down.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on the people

    "Too much drama and childishness on 3rd shift."

    I worked at Perfetti Van Melle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are outstanding. Most of the employees are great workers.

    Cons

    There is an Xtreme-ly high level of drama on 3rd shift, and an unbreakable clique that extends into upper management. If you aren't part of the "in crowd", you will end up doing all of the most difficult tasks while the clique sits on their assets all night long. Also, a TON of mandatory overtime that is could be eliminated by breaking up the clique.

    Advice to Management

    Put cameras in the Xtremes area to see who's actually working for their pay, and stop hiring through the buddy system. The company could eliminate a lot of unnecessary overtime pay and give employees more time with their families by closely monitoring performance on each shift. Install cameras and actually watch to see who is doing the work, get rid of those who haven't been earning their pay for years on end, and that'll pretty much solve the problems you have with keeping decent workers.
