    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -The company has a good values-based culture -Pension is pretty good for a defined contribution plan -Helpful, friendly, good-natured coworkers, especially in Finance -Free company products every now and then

    Cons

    -Pay was ridiculously low compared to the competition, even in a booming job market. Company wasn't very proactive in paying you market rate. I suspect that's why there's lots of turnover (especially in Finance). -Processes were generally slow and manual, and involve little use of technology -Company was stingy when it came to providing things for employees - e.g., good computer equipment, good supplies, etc. -Lots of last minute, unexpected work. People don't really seem to think/plan ahead as much
