I worked at McKee Foods

Pros

I can't speak for the manufacturing operations, but in salaried business process areas, it is a relatively good company to work for. They are very good at hiring and retaining excellent people, so there is plenty of talent and a "nice" atmosphere is valued and maintained.

Cons

There is more than the typical amount of management dysfunction. Silos of authority are sacrosanct causing logical absurdities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some good management consultants to totally redesign the management structures of the company, then implement at least most of the recommendations.

Centralize Information Technology authority and implement a cohesive IT strategy throughout the company.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    Good employee benefits and company values. Free products.

    Cons

    Employees have to wear steel-toed shoes which are very hard on the feet. No rubber mats on concrete floor. This causes leg and feet pain. Must climb concrete steps to second floor cafeteria and only have twelve and a half minute breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rubber mats.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Some decent people. Some training available. Room to climb up the ladder if you feel like working for it.

    Cons

    I'm a 3rd generation employee, and it just seems like the company is no where near as good as it used to be. The upper management knows nothing about what's going on. Health benefits aren't as great as other companies and are expensive for the coverage offered. People who work for raises/promotions typically don't get them, people that know someone important typically slide in the position. Very few team players on the production level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run the company like the small, family business mind set it started out with and pay more attention to your employees. Work on employee moral and getting employees to work as a team.
