    I have been working at J.D. Irving full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is a great company that offers lots of benefits. It provides extremely engaging work and fantastic benefits. There are few employers in North America that are as sophisticated with their employee development. Great place to work if you want a fast pace career with lots of development opportunities.

    Cons

    Great place to work, it is very traditional and that doesn't always appeal to all people.
