Skilled Labourer (Current Employee) –  Brandon, MB26 August 2013
It's a highly stressful job. There is a lot of politics, supervisors and co-workers aren't always on the same page. But good pay, bonuses, benefits, and a stable job.
Pros
decent pay, able to charge up meals.
Cons
Too much stress, supervisors are difficult to get along with.

Good pay, but a very challenging place to work
Materials Manager (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB5 January 2018
Working at Maple Leaf isn't for everyone - the pay (at least in management) is above average, but the expectations are very high. Work life balance doesn't exist, and the only way to prove your worth is to spend more and more hours in the office/plant. Flexibility for working from home etc are NOT options, and the overall culture is still very much an old boys club. Getting ahead requires you to "fit the mold" of a maple leaf manager or to have family already in the company to help you move ahead. The culture can be brutal, with unmanageable expectations and little to no praise.

Maple Leaf builds quality people, but unfortunately for them the quality ones learn how to manage and leave the company to prosper elsewhere. The ones who remain long term are negative and very difficult to work with.

Senoir leadership needs to be completely dismantled, but based on the current C level leaders that is never going to happen. The failed leadership continues to pat each other on the back, collect their bonuses and NEVER pay out manager level bonuses.
Pros
Lots of learning potential
Cons
Terrible leadership and culture
