    Great place to work if you have no desire to grow. Think twice if you are wanting to grow your career.

    Pros

    Absolutely the best reason to work for Perfetti VanMelle is the benefits and flexibility.

    Cons

    Biggest challenges working at Perfetti VanMelle are management are all process managers but not people managers which provides no personal development guidance (be prepared to develop yourself). No clear guide path for career advancement with no opportunities to grow with the company.

    Pros

    Great leadership. They try to explain everything and keep the different teams in the loop on what is going on with the company. Excellent training as well. Their benefits package is the best you'll find. Great 401k match, very affordable health insurance with great coverage, wellness reimbursement, food, holiday parties, reds and FCC tickets. Awesome place to work!

    Cons

    change can be a little slow and it can be a bit chaotic at times. But I wouldn't call those cons.

    Not worth your time

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of from my time employed here was the wellness reimbursement. They will cover $500 of specific expenses that prompted a healthy life. All of the other benefits they offer were industry standard. Company representatives will tell you they have the best benefits around but you drive 10 minutes in any direction and find a company with the same package. Not to say that the benefits are bad, just not as amazing as they are presented. They do offer tuition reimbursement but you have to get HR to return you email which in my case I waited for nearly 3 years and did not ever get a response. I had to pay my own tuition until I left. They sometimes give out free candy but its maybe once or twice a year.

    Cons

    When I worked there, HR routinely lied to incoming employees about the amount of overtime they would be required to work so that they could get more people in the door. We often had new hires that would have no clue that they would be working weekends until they started training. Starting pay is well below what other companies are offering in the area. Even with prior job experience, they only offer $16 an hour for production jobs. There are now a lot of new employers that are offering $20+ to start. It's not a vary large company so there is little room for advancement. Despite what HR will tell you, they do not have a great history of promoting from within. It has happened but do not expect much. They are far more likely to hire from the outside for any management type position. They say that they "consider their own employees first"" which may be true but in 5 years of working there it only saw maybe 4 or 5 internal promotions. Overall, the company talks a big game about how they promote a work life balance and family first culture but the reality is that only applies to those working in the corporate office. On the manufacturing side, expect to be treated pretty poorly and ignored unless you work their for 20 years. Do not waste 20 years of you life here, it's not worth it.
