Once the owner was forced out and corporate forces took over, you never knew if you were going to have a job by the end of the day. It was all about the money, thus the work/life balance was way off unless you fought against it. They installed very bad managers who far outnumbered the very good managers. Loved my team, but grew to dislike everything the company stood for. Keurig did not appreciate their greatest assets; the employees and the coffee culture. Hope for the sake of the people that are still there, that things are changing for them since the private buy-out.
Benefits, some really great people
Money driven corporate culture, lost focus from coffee to cold beverages

Coordinator/ Supervisor (Former Employee) – Sumner, WA – 12 May 2017
Work hard, must take breaks, some Dept's. Must work OT but you have a choice, if your a friend or relative of management you will get hired, bonuses lean some years, raises low per once a year, one week training then your on your own, watch out for the manager's smiles they are all about falling over each other to get that green star which is Keurig Green Mountain, if you rock the boat to much you get a desk job with higher pay. watch out for your self as management does not have your back.
BBQs, X-Mas parties in Feb.
Lots of temps to train, Managers and Leads do not listen
Hard to judge the company as I work here as a contractor. They do seem to have a good culture and the physical environment is very nice. They do not smile upon working from home which could reduce the companies expenses and carbon foot print. This seems to me to be a little out of the times.
Regional Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Stewart, GA – 7 April 2015
Enjoyed talking with the clients and helping them resolve any issues that they had. Assisted many customers over the phone, many of them were so appreciative and humorous, especially when called in regards to their brewer not working properly and I resolved their dilemma quickly and simply!!
It pains me to write this because I had such hopes for this company. After all from the surface it had all the qualities that I admired in a company. It was local, it was growing, it advertised the values of honesty and hard work. It also gave back to the community, was green. Well I guess I was the only thing green. After 2 years of working on one of the GMCR sites I was dumped in one of the coldest blind sides I have ever witnessed. It seems that once you finally look behind the fancy coverings GMCR is just a large company (200 plus coffee's) that pretty much does what it wants. In my short tenure I witnessed safety programs used to cull the herd of people that where deemed " un-worthy's" by a small core of managers. It all seemed very click oriented. I just ran into another person that had a similar experience this evening. So I guess if that's your thing go for it. but it's all too bad.
Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Burlington, MA – 5 March 2015
They have some young people that are in the supervisory position and not having the life experience. Some are not having the technical feeling and understanding of what they do. I understand what you are saying but i don't get it.

Consumer Care Representative II (Former Employee) – Reading, MA – 25 December 2014
This used to be a wonderful place to work however with the new CEO doest care about the people or the culture this company has always been known for. The managers treat people as if they are their puppets.
Marketing (Current Employee) – MA – 13 February 2014
- Great people and overall culture - Beginning to lose the start-up spirit (large company, Green Mountain influence - process driven, bureaucracy) -Some benefits are first rate (wellness, coffee, etc.) -Some are completely uncompetitive (6 holidays per year, below average bonus program)
big company processes, 6 holidays per year, limited bonuses
Quality Control/Data Entry (Former Employee) – Wakefield, MA – 9 October 2013
A typical day at work would be getting in at 7 a.m. and starting my day off with making sure the brewer that I have to test if functioning correctly. Then it's off to testing the life span of the brewer. The most enjoyable part of the job was entering the Data given to me from the brewers being tested.
