    I worked at Snyder's-Lance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good future, always putting money into the company - purchasing to increase market - lots of hours, if hourly employee - overtime is available year round

    Cons

    As they grew - they forgot about the employees that help put them there - you are a number only, and easily replaced. Benefits change every year, and are less..bonus programs for supervisors - but numbers are rigged against you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees - every year surveys are done, yet the same problems exist - you expect the supervisors to fix what the upper management is ignoring

    Pros

    Bottom up -open communication on the Hanover campus. Never a dull moment, friendly co-workers on the clock and off the clock! You work hard, put in effort- you'll get noticed.

    Cons

    Structural changes every year which can throw you for a loop- but the top, talented people always have opportunities. It is a way to get rid of the slugs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't mess around with changing reporting structures so much!

    Pros

    You can easily get a job in the factory or any job with this company that pays under $17 a hr for a black person, if your white they will pick you over any qualified black or Mexican

    Cons

    The corporate jobs, the good paying jobs that's $20 and above you will not get hired if your not "culturally fit" or white. You will not get hired if the salary is too high for a black person. (I'm white btw)

    Advice to Management

    Hire people equity based on knowledge and experience, not who will be your buddy or make people feel less threaten

    Pros

    The people are nice. Most just want to do a good job. Not a lot of back stabbing like some big companies.

    Cons

    They don't give a lot of time off. You feel like you can never get enough done. I know a lot of people work on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Give better work/life balance

    Pros

    You have a full-time job.

    Cons

    This company does what they want. They make up their own rules and who they apply to. During busy season you may as well live at the plant, working 60+ hours a week, 12 days straight and with only 2 days to rest. This can last up to 4 months as it did this past "busy" season.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are PEOPLE and they have a FAMILY that they care to spend time with.
