Suggestions for improvement

  • More to do outside. There's a big field area that could be easily turned into a pleasant place for people to walk or eat on breaks.

What I like about the company

We have an environment that supports building friendships and connections across departments. The social events that are put on are always something to look forward to

What I dislike about the company

For my department, there's really not much to speak of outside of personal disagreements which will happen anywhere. We get good support to do what we want to do.

  • This company needs a union. The Managers and Supervisors do not help. There should be a neutural party to accommodate employees.

What I like about the company

This company was really great at one time with raises before it was bought by the current owner.

What I dislike about the company

I work the damage OS&D we are underpaid. We take alot of crap for the damages that aren't caused by us. The people that make this mess is not held accountable.

  • More focus of vendor support of marketing programs for nutrion.

What I like about the company

Able to work independently and have support of management to operate and meet self-defined goals. Positive interactions with coworkers - an extended family atmosphere.

What I dislike about the company

Focus on personal goals and relation to business goals is sporadic at best but that is what any merit raise/bonus is based upon.

Suggestions for improvement

  • A complete makeover of upper management is needed. A company sale would do C&S a lot of good. Penny pinching owners are the principle reason for the company's cultural issues.

What I like about the company

Safety is a major component within the culture, however this is used to cap in the incentive pay that is offered based on productivity standards.

What I dislike about the company

There is a great deal of favoritism within the warehouse and office environment. If they like you, you can miss all the days you want; if they don't, the rules will guide you out of a job. Also, even with tuition assistance, there is simply no room for growth if your part of an internal 'black list.' Supervision is lackluster towards 'superior' or 'favored' employees. The company holds back on your promotions or transfers to other positions within it simply based on its own needs. Very little work/life balance, and they will use the "24 hour rule" to force people to work overtime as needed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • make improvements to give the workers a since of care for their physical need. not only applying them with better shows that are still safe, but also with attire that they don't have to pay full rate for. Having a source of food that isn't too expensive for them to recover strength and energy.

What I like about the company

This company does an amazing Job to keeping their image clean which means that they hold no tolerance for anything that goes against their beliefs. They do a great job at keeping true to the companies motto.

What I dislike about the company

Since they have such high expectations, sometimes it is too overbearing, especially in days that you might be sick, they give you essentials to mask the sickness or even the pain but sometime better treatment would be required.

  • Cutting experienced productive associates to save on salary to be replaced by less experienced workers will cost the company more in the long term .

Able to work without being micro managed

What I dislike about the company

Doesn't encourage input from associates . Need more latinos and blacks in "white collar" type jobs.

What I like about the company

Some people in the leadership group (very few) are caring, friendly and sincerely seem to care about employees.

What I dislike about the company

This is really not about "everyone involved in everything" like the owner states on company's vision. This is about "everyone working as hard as they can, earning less every year, due to the lack of pay increases and benefits premiums raising, while he (the owner) continues to build his empire and his bank accounts". Executive leadership are only "doers" and do not support the rest of their teams, and/or push for employee initiatives that are positive, engaging and show that there is a sense of "we really care".
