Cereal Operations Manager (Current Employee), Lodi, CASeptember 25, 2014
Pros: caring atmosphere with super capable individuals
Cons: declining market
A typical day balances strategy development along with observational time with the team

I have learned to show that I care for the team and the individuals while managing to the scorecard metrics

Co-workers are the most intelligent group of professionals I have worked with in my career.

Hardest part of the job is aligning resources to ever changing – more... initiatives as we react to a dynamic business model.

I love the rapid pace of work, the technical challenges, and developing individuals as well as the team to reach it's potential – less

Management difficult to work with
"AA" Millwright (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYSeptember 20, 2014
In the early 70"s it was a good place to work. Then new management started coming in and it became very difficult to work with a lot of them. They were fresh out of college and had a know-it-all attitude and started telling people that have worked there for years how to do their jobs. It always ended up causing bad production and wasted product because – more... the mangers way was the wrong way. – less
