    I worked at Canada Bread Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people, results driven atmosphere, investment in people.

    Cons

    Everything a top priority, executive level detachment from execution realities. Regular 'redundancy' culls, with no rhyme or reason as to who was culled (I wasn't). Top performers and mentors culled out with weaker lower salaried leaders retained. Frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the business' success is driven from bottom up performance. Eliminate hurdles to execution to street level, say what you will do, and do what you will say, and the future is bright.

    Fast-paced environment with daily challenges utilizing industry leading software systems to carry out assigned responsibilities.

    Implementation of process improvements is too slow. Executioners of process improvements were not properly trained on information systems and other business software integral to the success of the production plans.

    Advice to Management

    Production workers should be aware of potential risks and work together to reduce waste.
