    "Moved to MN"

    I worked at Post Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great group of people; Company was moving in right direction; plenty of opportunity to prove yourself. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Moved to MN. Out of almost 100 employees I think only one moved to MN. They did give a good severance.

    Advice to Management

    MN management needs to adapt to larger company requirements. The old Malt-o-Meal ways need to be updated. Not totally tossed - but it is not a family owned corporation anymore.

    Pros

    NJ Office was a great place to work - flexible work hours, Summer hours, casual dress Fridays, company events and family friendly work place. Good work/life balance. Good time off policy. Good work environment - dedicated employees and hard workers.

    Cons

    New Jersey office is closing and relocating to Minnesota - we all lost our jobs - I will miss working with my former New Jersey colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the generous holiday and paid time off policy, Summer hours and favorable work/life balance - happy employees are productive employees.

    Perfect combination of highly skilled workers , top notch brands, interesting work. Senior management did a great job of keeping the employees informed. Great overall benefits.

    I have been working at Post Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Disciplined thinking by management that had been lacking in Post cereals. The transition is almost over and we can now move forward instead of the backwards looking NJ team who seemed to be confused as to to who was in charge (merger agreement was very clear). The best of old team (Sales) is excited as we rebuild this business and get to a proper value.

    Cons

    Some bitterness from former team.

    Advice to Management

    Full speed ahead.

    I worked at Post Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Helpful management group. Knowledgeable hourly group. Challenging projects. Company encourages innovation and promotes application of new ideas. Management respects new ways of solving problems and encourages use of new problem solving tools.

    Cons

    Not enough people buying cereal, therefore, business is, sometimes, too slow. Hourly employees get laid off. Seems like Post allowed market share to slip too much.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a nationwide paradigm shift back to eating cold cereal for breakfast every morning. Advertise more and take back market share from Kelloggs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Was a great place to work, GREAT co-workers/colleagues, very family oriented, and work-life balance came first...not to say there weren't some long days/nights. But it was balanced and fair.

    Cons

    The way the 'acquisition' was handled. For those of us who have already left, I will state that severance was fair.

    There was 0 (zero) desire to become a part of the new organization given the way Post Parsippany personnel were talked to/about. Many meetings I participated in, email I read, or in information I gleaned from conversations with colleagues who had to deal day-2-day with the new team contained phrases like "you people", "your way of doing things" and attitudes akin to "we won, you lost, what don't you understand?", etc. were directed from MOM personnel towards Post Foods employees. It was antagonizing at best, and slap-in-your-face at worst. That is why only 1 employee joined the new Company in Lakeville, MN out of the xxx+ people working in the Parsippany, NJ HQ.

    For those employees in Lakeville, let's be clear about 1 thing: you have your jobs solely because of the sale/purchase provision that guaranteed MOM positions through May 2017 (2 years from the deal closing date). After May 2017, let’s see what happens. Selling on price isn't selling, it's begging.

    And for the record, I'm not bitter: I have a new job paying me more money with what I can see is similar work-life balance…and I did not have to relocate my life. So at the end of the day, I've moved on. But the former 'whining' comment really burned me.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to bridge the divide with the old/new Sales organization (the only functional area left mostly intact), or it will be disastrous down the road...and that not too far off.

    Post merged with MOM Brands - all operations moving to Lakeville, Minnesota Will cause major disruptions in short-term business operations Employee base changing Management change - how will this impact the long term direction and health of the business?

    Capitalize on the synergy between Post and MOM brands Focus first on optimizing internal systems that can handle both businesses
