      Pros

      Had great people to work with, but we all dealt with an awful culture.

      Cons

      Culture here is driven from the very top, and it is brutal. Could not wait to leave here but will miss many of my coworkers.

      Pros

      There were some great people in the company that I enjoyed getting to know.

      Corporate culture is abrasive and non-collaborative. This is driven from the CEO down.

      Doing the right thing

      Pros

      - Great people - a result of a values-based hiring process over many years and ... - The fact that this is one of the few large companies in Canada outside of the extraction and financial industries which is domestically owned and operated. Not just a sales and operations branch - real decisions get made by employees in Canada - Dedicated and stable CEO

      Cons

      - Food is still a tough industry, and manufacturers in particular are generally price-takers both on the selling side (vs. Loblaws, Sobeys, Walmart) and the procurement side (commodities). So margins can get squeezed and make it difficult to do the many ambitious things the company would like to accomplish in terms of employee development, sustainability, etc. - For many years, lurched from crisis to crisis, although that seems to finally have settled.
