    Pros

    The Charlotte Plant is awesome and a well oiled machine with great leadership
    The Charlotte Plant has a positive atmosphere

    Cons

    Columbus leadership is clueless about how to treat employess
    If Leadership by Fear and threats is your style, Columbus is the place for you.
    There is no work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on the plant, stop all production for a weekend each month to allow for maintenance, sanitation and inventory to be done. It is unbelievable that Corporate leadership has not asked the hard questions, and looked into the reason both leadership and workers have been leaving the Columbus plant in large numbers over the past couple of months.

    Pros

    Products, Lance history, charlotte location

    Cons

    Environment and lack of business ethics

    Advice to Management

    Snyder's leaders are challenged with ethics. Merger of equals is a farce. Lance acquisition was met with hostility, Lack of vision and communication is creating havoc, which is apparent in recent results. Suspect this will end badly. 3 years is the best they can do for long term vision. Was at one time a good place to work.

    Dave spent years upgrading talent and image in the organization and sold out in 2010 to achieve personal and crony monetary goals. Singer and his cronies are counting their money as they continue to allow the Snyder's cowboys to run the organization in the ground. Degrade in talent and ethics is shocking. Senior leaders exiting were turn around agents since 2005, now they are "over qualified". Current mantra is "we don't need that level of talent". All functions are moving to Hanover, PA. Charlotte HDQ will be eliminated in 2012.

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

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck and access to snacks

    Cons

    My experience at Lance has been one of great disappointment. I have found that there is no room whatsoever for advancement. I have trained people with less work experience than I and they have been successful in advancing in positions that I applied and qualified for, but were not available to me. I have been told that I did not have the right experience, but the people that were hired for the positions had similar or less experience than me. My work experience, education, and training means nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Do some internal investigation on the diversity of positions in Columbus, Georgia.

    Pros

    At one point there was a very entrepenorial spirit and employees encouraged to pursue ideas and opportunities.

    Cons

    With the 'merger' the leadership is interested in retaining 'followers' who will comply with stale practices of the past and not rock the boat.

    Advice to Management

    Hire, promote, and retain the best and create a culture that challenges the status quo.

    It use to be a good company.

    Cons

    Horrible management, all the long term employees are getting treated horrible!

    Advice to Management

    Ever since the merger, new supervisor lets the title get to his head, I've been with the company for 25 years and they're making me do new hire work. All because I didn't see the jobs on the bulletin, and his only response was, don't forget next time. What a bunch of crap. I think it's a whole lot of race issues. Spoke with the supervisor and he does nothing but gives everyone else hours. You're making the wrong mistake by firing the good ones and letting the bums come to work.
