    I have been working at Snyder's-Lance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Snyder's offers pretty good pay considering the jobs done. They have overtime available for extra money. I also truly believe that the company cares about improving life on the job, as well as the ability to have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    There will be some mandatory overtime that is not always wanted. This is something that comes with manufacturing though.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is key to keeping people happy.

    Working with great people with years of industry experience that help you grow to be successful.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance with some great talent.

    Cons

    Lack of transparent communication form upper management, executive team not stable and going through a lot of change, lack of talent development.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate more focus on developing employees and find some stability. Change can be good but rewarding those that stick through the change and giving them something to work for would be beneficial.

    Plenty of opportunity for overtime. Great benefits.

    Stop hiring former felons. Too many business mergers.

    Pros

    Well...... yeah about that. Pros?

    Cons

    Company really doesn't care for you as they are only out for themselves. You are a contract employee and not a actual "business" owner. They don't have to pay you benefits or your taxes so it works out for them.

    Pros

    They hire anybody that has two legs and two arms. But for pros I really cannot think of any.

    Cons

    Franklin Wisconsin nuthouse! Strictly Ghetto. They will slave drive you insane. The yell at you in front of other employees and scream at you. It took me two days before I decided I want no part of this. If you want to be slave driven to you're insane this is the place for you. You may not get a break at all. You will be harshly slave driven for 12 hours. You better be prepared to work not in just a fast-paced environment you better be prepared to work in a Nut House! Nuthouse is only being nice! The place have mostly temporary workers.That's how the product is getting shipped out the door. The happy-go-lucky video on that company really is a cover-up for what really is in that place. It is a total nightmare. Do not work there unless you want to be in a straight jacket! They have lots of chiefs bossing you around. You better be accurate you don't get a chance to check your stuff. The moment you check your stuff you are going too slow they will tell you to step up Step Up step up but you might reply on checking they want you to be able to know of the product without looking at it. If there is a mistake you are in some boiling hot water! But I was trying to check but you wouldn't let me maybe your reply. Get over there wrap the pallets now. I wish I can go on and on. But it took me two days before I got out of that insane environment. If you want to have a stroke work at Snyders Lance. If you want to be sound and mind body and soul avoid this place at all costs!

    Advice to Management

    Go to management school and get trained up on the professionalism and ethics of management. Restructure your whole environment. Hope things change when Cambells get in there and run the place. For right now management is much more saltier than the pretzels they make!
