    I have been working at Schwan's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Schwan's has drawn a lot of really smart people - this keeps me on my toes. This is a family company, despite the passing of Alfred and Marvin. Many of the principles of the founders still resonate today. I have been given many opportunities and look forward to more.

    Cons

    Only downside is that it is a privately held company that adheres to public company practices. While I certainly care about quarterly and yearly results, sometimes, the right decision is right. We need to be able to take advantage of doing the right thing because we can, not because the ROI is less than 2 years,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to reinvigorate the family atmosphere at the depots. They are the backbone to the process and we need to ensure they have the same sense of engagement as those in the office.

    Pros

    You get out of it what you put in to it. Good opportunity to make money if you follow the plan and work hard. Decent benefits and 401K. Mostly good people to work with.

    Cons

    As of late,way too much micro management. They used to talk of having an entrepreneurial spirit and that is what drove the company. Now it's exactly their way or the highway. Too many reports and paperwork and not enough time to work with the employees in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the local managers and district managers run their sales companies and hold them accountable to the results.
