    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Pinnacle Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Rich experience opportunity across the board since they ran very lean. Access to senior leadership was part of daily life. Good product portfolio and innovation. Small company feel for a large ($3bn) company. Great employee culture and camaraderie. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Minimal opportunity for advancement in IT. Leadership seemed to understand they would be acquired. Chopped bonus severely in 2018 - didn't seem to make sense since business was admired so much in the industry.
