    I have been working at Ventura Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. The only positive.

    Cons

    Racist management and staff.
    Corrupt HR and Union involvement.
    Rats in production.
    The worst management I have ever been privy to. Have no clue how to delegate and what is actually going on.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone else to manage the entire company head to toe. You are not even capable of putting proper supervisors in charge. Get a clue. Get good lawyers for racism lawsuits that will probably end up on your doorstep.

    Pros

    The people. There are a lot of very nice people. Easy to build working relationships with. Company lunches and events.

    Cons

    Management. It appears as though many people in management have no clue what their team does or doesn’t care. Not willing to jump in and help if their team is struggling.

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive and help.
