    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Agropur Coopérative part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are many perks to working at the head office: free gym, indoor parking, free coffee, dairy products, etc. The campus is clean and employees friendly.

    Cons

    The company isn't doing great at the moment so there are a lot of budget cuts. The company constantly restructures itself, which results in frustration throughout departments.

    I worked at Agropur Coopérative full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice building, forest behind, salary

    Cons

    Where to start.. - Unfriendly environment, everyone afraid for their job - No clear vision, loads of chiefs, and a chief of a chief’s chief... 90% there because of politics, not skills and experience - going up the ladder is ONLY through connections, not performance - unfriendly team - unhappy bunch of people that dont understand marketing / brand basics. How to expect someone that dresses bad to know how to... make a brand / product attractive to a consumer?

    Advice to Management

    Resign and stop stealing hard earned money from the farmers to pay for all the consultants to tell you what you what to do.
