    I worked at The J. M. Smucker Company

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours and summer half day Fridays - Some really great people to work with - Lots to learn within the company as they dabble in many different categories

    Cons

    - On the surface, the culture seems great but the company always comes first and if it's at the expense of its employees (either their job or their development) - Some really poor people managers . that are only in it for themselves - Lack of a development plan for its employees for some teams, there is very little movement across functions even if they say it during the interview - Lots of office politics within upper management and you will have to play the game in order to get ahead
