Products, some of the people. Products and some of the people since I need 20 words and there aren't 20 pros.
Leadership (lack of), favoritism, have to be in the club to survive comfortably. Some of the people. Pay (lack of). Does not care about the people. Safety is important until it interferes with production.
Advice to Management
Learn how to lead, value, and get the most out of your people. Stop hiring and promoting people just because you know them. What seems easiest today is not always best for the long term. Get to know your subordinates, learn more about them than what other people have to say. Teamwork makes the dream work.

Good pay, lots of overtime, union, pretty easy job at times.
You have no life here at all, management is horrible, the union here is horrible, you get forced to work.

Advice to Management
I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than 3 years)
Lots of contacts made but as soon as you get to a certain level of pay you get cut for cheaper workers. So it is good for contacts
Been here 5 years. Have had 6 bosses and have been thru 3 downsizing the company reorganizes every 5 or so months in some regards.. Be very careful sounds good but on Foodservice it is defentily a stepchild to retail Worst insurance in the industry and in my role I was told the only way to move up would be to leave. Travel 30% turned out to be 90 and I am never home almost lost family over it. Senior management changes every 5 years as they are based out of the country and they have to move back so Europe .. So no constant leadership or vison
