The managers and workers are amazing. If not for the salary I would've stayed. The factory is an, "as long as the work gets done right", sort of atmosphere. It's not so serious where you hate it there and the benefits are pretty good.

Very poor management , most positions are micromanaged. No room for advancement. Every move you make is watched. No training. Some Managers are bullies and you’re treated like a preschooler even whilst having 10 years more experience than them. Absolutely zero work/life balance

This is a great family-owned company. The owners are here regularly and show that they care about their employees. We also have nice perks, like free lunches when uptime is good and there is a "high five" and gusto program for recognition of outstanding work.

Chudleigh's has a awesome environment and great people to work with. The work on the floor is easy not hard but sometimes we have tuff days. We are busy in Summary and slow in Winter.

Chudleigh’s needs to modernize. They need leaders with experience and know how. What have now is people who have been there forever and loyalty is great but not at the expense of progress. You don’t need to fire them maybe but know when they have hit their ceiling. Turn over in the last 6 months to a year is out of control. Management sees this as a money issue, it’s not. It’s culture and management style. A couple sour apples if you will that everyone has issues with ruin a lot of potential. These issues are never addressed directly because the owners for whatever reason protect them.

There are excellent people in positions below management that are great and could move the company forward but as the turn over shows they hit walls get frustrated and or mislead and leave. This company has amazing potential but continues to grab defeat out of the hands of victory. The owners who were once invested seem more worried about planning vacations then the current status of their employees and company.


This company has some good features like great recognition programs, company up time awards, and decent benefits.


Although it is not a good place to be right now it has potential to be more but if it isn’t fixed soon it also has potential to get worse.


I would not recommend this company at this time.
Pros
Reward programs
Cons
Poor leadership, not flexible, little opportunity for advancement, high turnover

Did not expect the amazing amount of friendliness and positivity here at Chudleigh's. Everyone is really nice and helpful in all situations. Being one of the few co-op students, other coworkers made the environment and workplace very enjoyable to work in. Everyday is a new experience to learn from. And, the products taste amazing.

As Chudleighs is growing, it can be difficult to decide how to integrate new best practices and systems without losing the wonderful family culture that has made the company successful to date. Some people struggle to understand the change required while others struggle to appreciate the past. That is not a bad thing and is a natural transition for growth as we learn to integrate new thinking with historical strength. Not everyone may see it, however the management team spends a considerable amount of time trying to figure out how move forward to benefit both employees and our customers. Sure, sometimes we can miss the mark and struggle. However everyone at Chudleighs is learning and growing together with opportunities for anyone who wants to move forward. One thing for sure, there are a lot of great people who are dedicated to making awesome tasting products while striving to make it a great place to work. I feel privileged to be part of the team. Way to go Chudleighs!
Pros
Great culture & teams, opportunities for growth, Education is key

The owners are good but the management is not good. There is no opportunity for advancement. Every position is micromanaged . You can get in trouble for someone else's mistakes.

Poor exec management especially production. people go on stress leaves and the owners may not know this is happening more and more. They left too soon.
Sadly the new regime wants to change the culture and what the owners built. Not a positive environment.

Products are delicious and customers love Chudleighs.

The benefits pkg and perks are great thank you Chudleigh’s family.
Pros
Lunch, benefits, recognition
Cons
Terrible management

Chudleigh's makes the most delicious and savory treats- the atmosphere also reflects that. Great people to work with, very collaborative, innovative, and genuine! Chudleigh's is HUGE on recognition, and appreciating the employees that work here. Great pay, competitive benefits and even a very generous RRSP matching program. Personal and professional development are of very high importance to the Owners and Executive committee- yearly educational allowance to top it off!

Great team to be apart of!!
Pros
compensation, team and treats
