    I have been working at Saputo for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great corporate support and great pay and benefits. Training program is getting better each year. Large but still had a family focus.

    Cons

    From a plant level, leadership is limited. More of an “old school” feel. I think this will improve as you get talent mixes in with the leadership. Very knowledgeable experience, but limited on leadership development, coaching and mentoring.

      Pros

      Saputo is an excellent company with fantastic benefits. You can tell the CEO really strives to make the company different than the others.

      Cons

      HR can play favorites, depending on the location. Some HR employees are quite nasty to others and get away with it because they are HR. I believe an internal review of the HR department is necessary.

      I worked at Saputo full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Could be a good place to work if they ever figure out the problems are in the office, not on the floor.

      Cons

      Upper management is terrible at their job. Revolving door of employees due to lack of training and upper management not taking the blame for their mistakes. Good people quit due to management or get fired because they dont know how to do what they have never been taught how to do.

      Advice to Management

      Making people constantly fear for their job and holding them responsible for mistakes made at a higher level is not how to keep good employees.

      "Poor management"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at Saputo

        Pros

        Health care is decent. That’s all I can say

        Cons

        Run like a small company. Management does not take the time to help, train, or give direction. It’s a clicky atmosphere, where only the “select favorites” succeed. If you value your dignity and enjoy being respected, DONT WORK HERE

        Advice to Management

        Don’t treat employees with such disrespect. Everyone should be treated as equals

        Pros

        Great benefits. teammates are awesome. free milk.

        Cons

        Senior Managers who have been there for over 10 years still do not know what they are doing. They throw you under the bus. No training. You are expected to know the "dairy" industry. Other Sr. Managers are not willing help you if your manager is out. New bids get put in every week, but never gets signed by the client.

        Advice to Management

        Work on leadership
