    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.

    Pros

    Hands down the best products on market. Excellent Ibo’s and customers were great. Made many long lasting friendships over the years.

    Cons

    Is there a negative rating? Upper management does have a clue!! Spent 15 years building business,only to be disregarded as a number. Very sad the way people are treated. Local zone can’t be trusted. He’s a yes man with a BIG ego. Manages with fear and not a leader.

    Advice to Management

    Do current employees and shareholders a favor. Quit or resign.. You terminated some very good employees with regard of talent or skills.

    Pros

    The People do the best they can with the resources they are given. There is a lot of talent in the company.

    Cons

    The “new” CEO gets up months ago and says we are going to turn the company around and that he’s going to be “transparent”. In reality he was planning to sell the company the whole time! He used his minion the COO to layoff 250 so he could get the cost as low as possible so someone would buy us but now everyone is doing 2 to 3 people job. They won’t give the plants money to fix’s things because they way to get the highest price for their stock. They CEO, CFO and the COO will walk out millionaires and the rest of the company will pray that Campbell’s doesn’t let another 1,000 people go with little Compensation!

    Advice to Management

    No advise! You’ve already bailed because your cowards.
