      I worked at Premier Foods full-time

      Pros

      Getting paid is about it

      Cons

      Plenty in this section, there was an awful team ethos, blame culture and a lot of snakey behaviour Then on top of that management only protect their own but allow racism and discrimination to occur. You work with dictators and judas's - not a place to go if you are wise Also no work/life balance, they expect you to work like a dog but ironically treat you like one too

      Advice to Management

      Change your management and your work environment.
