    I worked at Snyder's-Lance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was amazing, its paid weekly, HR generalist and her assistant are amazing, but only because they've not been corrupted. Benefits are out of this world awesome. And the hours rocked!

    Cons

    They do NOT like outsiders at all. Most people there have been there for a while, and if one person doesn't like you the rest don't. And they will make sure you know it too. There's no training on anything, you're expected to know how to do the job their way. I had a performance review on a Friday, and everything was fine and great. My boss left for vacation, we come back from the holiday weekend and I was pulled into the office said I was not fit for the company and I needed to leave immediately. I attempted to ask for an explanation and was cut short saying it was irrelevant that it was already done and I needed to leave.

    Advice to Management

    When your employees come to you on multiple occasions and tell you somethings not right, you really should listen to them!

    Pay is decent
    Operations team wants to improve at the front line leader level

    Managers chase numbers not results

    Decision making on any improvement ideas takes too long due to lack of structure

    Advice to Management

    Condense roles and empower the teams to handle

    I have been working at Snyder's-Lance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and when things magically come together, good pay.

    Cons

    Absolutely imploded businesses. Total inability of upper management and big box customer sales reps to create and seal deals. Partner Brand distribution contracts walking away. Merged product companies using bypass distr networks. Promotions in the gutter. Total chaos verse the expectation of success.

    Advice to Management

    If you are not getting the results you expect, you have the wrong persons in place. And you certainly do.

    I have been working at Snyder's-Lance full-time

    Pros

    * Yearly bonus as long as requirements are met

    Cons

    This is not a company for the employee, point blank period. They are most certainly only concerned with make money and doing whatever they have to do to get there in the process. They offer little if any employee incentive to make you feel like your are valued to them. I was completely relieved when I found out Campbells Soup purchased our company. I have yet to see how that company operates but I realistically can not see it being any worse than working for Snyders Lance.

    Pros

    Co-workers are very good and helpful

    Cons

    Negative attitude supervisors make working there very hard. HR no help because there is no checks and balances to see who is good or bad as far as supervisors and other low level management that do unfair things to workers.

    Advice to Management

    Have meeting in every dept. without management to hear what's going on and how to do more business with happier employees. Forget HR being there also.

    Pros

    Decent pay and good people

    Cons

    Way to many b.s. rules and policies.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the ridiculous policies. Management needs to get off their high horse and respect people instead of pretending to respect people. Its obvious. Need better medical benefits copay and premiums are very high. Give us what you get as salaried employees. We deserve it.
