    I have been working at U.S. Sugar (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only pros to US Sugar is that they lightly abide by OSHA regulations. If they can hid a discrepancy that will be done.

    Cons

    Extremely condescending management that have no idea how to manage or even to speak to employees. Managers believe they can run everything from an office and refuse to go into the dangerous areas of the plant because they know there is a good chance of a fatal accident.
    Management teams refuse to even work together and continue to argue and point fingers instead of working for solutions. The company refuses to provide employees with decent restroom facilities and even are reported as stating the employees don't deserve a nice restroom because they will spend too much time in there.
    The buildings are deteriorating and management is too worried about getting their bonus than in spending the funds necessary to maintain the proper upkeep of the facility.
    Management behaves like royalty and treat the employees as if they are peasants. Even the office staff and secretaries behave as if they are superior to all the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pack up and go back to your own country!

    I have been working at U.S. Sugar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only pro to US Sugar is that it is a paycheck and you have benefits which are getting less and less each year.

    Cons

    Incompetent management and more being hired.
    Constant harassment to workers.
    Workers treated like second class citizens.
    Very dangerous environment and managers placing you in unsafe areas with no concern for your life.
    Poor communication from failure to hire managers that speak clear english, a listed requirement for employment.
    Racism from Upper and middle management.
    No chance of advancement from hourly worker to management

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap
    Hire competent managers not your little servants

    I have been working at U.S. Sugar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As an I/e you have a chance to learn anything about instrumentation, controls, voltage range from 24 to 4100... Pay is good for the area.

    Cons

    Dropping I/e pay about $2 a year. Til we bottom out around $31 new hires will never catch up in pay no matter how much they do/learn the plant. Union has no say even if company purposely goes against contract. Grievances appear to sit on back burner til forgotten. Osha been in plant too many times to feel comfortable about working conditions. Not too much around that the wife likes in the area-I've decided to live about an hour from plant. Utility bills in clewiston appear high. Management for I/e department is poor. 2 out of 6 understand what the plant needs to run. The other 4 must be there to ???? I hear they are forcing new management to live local.

    Advice to Management

    Do not blame union or employees for the decisions that management has made in the past or for the future of the company.

    I have been working at U.S. Sugar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a large factory and there are many areas for an engineer to gain experience and grow. Many competent mid-career professionals on staff to work with. Overall factory equipment reliability is good which means work hours stay reasonable.

    Cons

    Rural area away from the amenities that many families want. Like all companies health insurance cost keep going up,

    Advice to Management

    What is the growth plan for the future?
