    Company is becoming more and more cutthroat. No loyalty, just bottom line.

    I worked at Utz Quality Foods full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, lots of snacks to eat.

    Cons

    If you're good at your job you get more work and no recognition or extra pay. Lack of promotions from within.

    I have been working at Utz Quality Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Utz has a great customer base and a quality product.

    Cons

    Poor communication of relevant information. Management is not a real team. They are all individuals patting each other on the back while looking over their shoulders for a stab in the back at the same time. Misogynistic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Does anyone have a degree in management, or were all promoted from sales?

    I have been working at Utz Quality Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Company continues to grow
    - A lot of good people work here
    - Family-oriented, for the most part (see Cons)
    - Great Christmas party
    - Free snacks!
    - Potential for advancement for some people
    - Most of the VPs are actually decent people who you can talk to on your level

    Cons

    - As Utz grows & acquires other companies, some crucial departments are not growing with it, putting strain on the current employees.
    - Got a rotten raise my first year, despite being the most productive & reliable employee in my department
    - Company keeps hiring more VPs, resulting in increasingly more demands and after-hours commitments from an already strained support staff.

    Advice to Management

    If this company is going to keep growing, you need to hire more administrative and support staff to keep things moving smoothly. Putting additional strain on an already short staff is bad for morale and you WILL lose good people that way.
