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

    Pros

    A decade ago, this facility was considered the wayward, out West upstarts of the ‘Mother’ ship in Hanover. Woefully inefficient, trying our best but without a strong trailblazer to show us the way. Since then, with Hanover making some brilliant yet very difficult key personnel changes, and after countless man-hours of hard work by all, we have accomplished a staggering amount of change, and run much more efficiently now through a strong, healthy mix of thriving morale and optimum business strategies. The Merger has made many new changes, most of them good I believe, and I understand and applaud the vision of the Senior Leadership corp to strengthen and fortify the plants that need the leg-up.

    Cons

    Downside to us is forget about any capital money coming our way for about a decade or two, and it sure appears to the Financial types that we are now the golden goose to wring out of us more and more profits through vast reductions in budgets, cutbacks, project cancellations, etc. Tentatively cautious about stunting our growth and prosperity through too much trimming. Continously challenging us is a positive and continous growth stimulator however.

    Advice to Management

    All said, I do have faith in our leaders, the overall vision, and firmly believe that eventually all of the plants will achieve personal record levels of success and the Snyders-Lance team will continue to thrive and prosper, and I’m confident we will challenge and win out over the behemoths of our industry one day soon.

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

    Pros

    Great managers, awesome people to work with, well-established corporation. The pay is competitive, the benefits are good, and there's a decent bonus structure.

    Cons

    Even though there are pros to being employed by a well-established corporation. there are some not-so-great things as well, including having your job description radically changed a year down the line and having to just deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Restructuring is al fine and dandy, but please allow your employees to do the job they were hired on to do. Otherwise, there's not much else to say except keep it up!
