    Pros

    Overall, Maple Leaf has a friendly environment and you are treated fairly. MLF company culture is great - everyone(mostly) lives the values and they are not just a poster on the wall. The focus for performance is balanced between both development and results and they have a very good annual review process.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, their compensation is on the lower side of market value and annual raises are not that great. Advancement opportunities are there but limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Over the years, the environment is becoming more political - try and preserve your culture as it is a key competitive advantage in attracting top talent.

    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods

    Pros

    Friendly enviroment
    Collaboration among teams
    Central location in west end of Mississauga, building is very nice

    Cons

    - Salaries in general are below the average....everybody knows that!
    - Eventhough there is somehow a long business strategy, it is very poorly excecuted
    In some areas of the company there is not a clear path for the futuere because their leaders have not being able to communicate that clearly
    - Company is perpetual change...change in business model, leaders, teams....this create lots of tensions in its people, drivign negative behaviors.
    - this is Food Company with no cafeteria in either of the two building...still can not figure that one out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once you identify a clear plan stick with it, do not change curse constanly; this creates lots of mistrust and cummunication issues with the people
