    I have been working at Stahlbush Island Farms full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful farmlands allowed to purchase product at discounted rate

    Cons

    Farm Shop, Engineering-FabShop and Plant Maintenance Managed well all other departments can only be described as Train Wrecks. Senior Management completely oblivious of what is going on around them, when management failures are brought to Senior Managements attention employee concerns are unanswered. Work environment can only be described as unhealthy, training is nonexistent, employees are mocked for requesting... additional instruction. Advancement is possible if you are the correct kind of person, race is a factor in advancement. Oh and you are told when hired the company observes 3 holidays BUT you are not paid for any holidays and have to use the PTO you earn to cover anytime you take off - Thanksgiving/Christmas/NewYers facility is shut down for 6 days, either use your PTO or don’t get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your workers, upper management is giving you the answers you want not the truth of what’s going on. Your employees are afraid to speak truthfully for fear of retaliation. It is happening all over your facility

    I worked at Stahlbush Island Farms full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great daily grind job to smash out hours. Real sense of family in the production teams. Land of opportunity, can grow into all different positions at the company if you have the will to learn and take on responsibility.

    Cons

    Sense of existential dread at having to deal with bi-polar senior management. Could be doing everything right one day, and everything wrong the next doing exactly the same thing. Could even be following their instructions and you'd be wrong. Other days, could be doing everything wrong, and they would be perfectly fine with it. Hours, treatment of labor, healthcare benefits. Working 6 days a week a majority of the... year really burns you out. I would not recommend this job to anyone looking for something more than a day in, day out, mindless general labor position.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Senior Management Team. You need a fresh perspective. Those in leadership now have too much power, too much tenure. They are unafraid to throw everybody under them under the bus just to look good. They are also unafraid to drop ownerships name just to get their agenda accomplished. Drain the swamp!

    I have been working at Stahlbush Island Farms full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Chance to move up to management position.

    Cons

    Small firm so not sure how long it will take to move up. After my probation period they said there would be a review and there is room to move up. I told them my goals and only will to join team if there was room to grow, not will to just stay if no room to grow. I want to put my back ground and education to use.
