    Pros

    The people that work at Welch's are good, solid people that get along well together and take pride in doing a good job. The company properly allows for a good work/life balance. Depending on the department working from home sometimes during the month can be an option.

    Cons

    The company sometimes has a hard time staying focused on their core values with strategies changing often

    large enough to get resources to accomplish the mission; small enough that the highest level executives know and care about you.

    A true leader in a tough market

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the current focus on innovation.

    Pros

    Pay is great for the area. And they have a cafe. That is it. There isn't anything else I'm just filling space to hit the minium word count

    Cons

    They will lie to you for their benefit. They have no idea how set a schedule, it changed hourly. You may be scheduled 11-7 Wednesday night and get a call at 11am Thursday morning the need you in for 3-11 when you were scheduled for the mid night shift.

    Pros

    good pay and benefits for regular employees

    Cons

    this company is surely good at pointing fingers to blame someone for anything. You will be put on steps for mistakes that you did not know about, and the employees are not friendly. It lakes diversity within the work force and if you like unions against the company, then you will love this. The Union doesn't care about all the employees. If you feel something is wrong and you have not been there along time, the union will try and blackball you and not help you.......

    Advice to Management

    just take over the company and get rid of the union........They mean nothing and they stand for nothing. I am sure the company would run better if there was no union there and just pay the employees what they are worth. keep benefits the same and offer bonuses.......

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are the only good thing about place.

    Cons

    No work life balance you work there say good bye to personal life and family the people there are your nee family. Never worked at a place where management and workers were on opposite sides and didnt work together to make the place better. Also your not allowed to he human.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring people who are compassionate and who wants to work with employees to make product better.

    I worked at Welch's (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was close to home with decent pay and benefits, steady work up until I left. Interesting work.

    Cons

    Working for a Co-op! Management and the growers only point the finger at the hourly works. Super top heavy organization with way to many people at corporate that have nothing to do with actually making the product.

    I worked at Welch's full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, highly collaborative environment. Genuinely cares about people. Good work life balance. Strong brand. Quality products. Nice office space. Summer hours.

    Cons

    Leadership team is completely out of touch with competitive environment, too risk averse to make the changes necessary to truly succeed, and content with mediocre performance. Few real conversations around actual business challenges and how to solve them. Small company completely bogged down by big company process.

    Advice to Management

    Take the blinders off and get serious about how to transform this company and the people. Stop accepting mediocrity and "we can't".

    This is a great place to work if you want to work with nice people and be able to show up and check the box, but not very satisfying if you actually care about succeeding in the marketplace and delivering results. If you could unlock just a bit of entrepreneurial spirit across the organization and take a few risks, you could drive more engagement and satisfaction.
