      Very Positive Company Culture

      Pros

      Most of my coworkers are friendly and helpful towards new employees. My supervisor is also very understanding and flexible with things such as work schedules and task assignments. I was astonished and comforted at the same time to have such kind of support as a fresh graduate in her first job.

      Cons

      The hiring process takes very long. I had to go through 3 interviews (1 of which were in person) before given an offer. Overall, it took almost 3 months from the date I applied to when I actually started.

      Pros

      Good management and environment. Co-workers are solid as well. Issues here and there, as with any company, but overall a solid place to work. More good things to say than bad.

      Cons

      With so many co-workers, issues can arise with communication and efficency amongst the plant.

      Pros

      Just see the cons below

      Cons

      Where do I start: -extremely unreliable expectations from head office. Want more from less with no money -company is stuck in 1980s or 1990s -was told safety is huge with the company but there were always issues or bulletins about incidents -very little money or maintenance -plant was an absolute dump and smells like a barn -heard stories of fudging performance numbers to impress the head office -IT infrastructure was from the Soviet Union era -bonus tied to plant performance=no bonus -HORRIBLE benefits and pension -good old boys club at higher positions resulted in sketchy business deals where equipment was worked on at ‘family’ businesses -plant performance was extremely poor and lots of breakdowns -no flexibility for work, sick days come out of personal time off. If you get sick often or have medical issues, don’t plan too many holidays -bully tactics from regional managers to ‘make the plant look good’ so that they can justify their useless jobs The second I find another job I will stop showing up at bunge
