Company Culture

It is a dog eat dog environment. Not conducive for a productive work environment. Employees never know when the boss is going to blow up!

Support from management

Absolutely no support from upper management. They are always looking to throw somebody under the bus to protect themselves.

Teamwork

The employees under my supervision were great. They cared about doing a good job. The good work that they did was very rarely recognized by upper management.

Internal Communication

This is probably the worst category of the bunch. Upper management tends to keep important tidbits to themselves to use when the time is right to tear down an employee.

Gender Equality

Women do NOT have the same opportunities as men

Career Development

There were no chances for improvement or training. You have to figure it all out on your own. Sink or swim, they only care if you don't get it right

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits were on par, compensation was low but always on time

Office / Work Environment

Adequet

Work-Life Balance

It's the company 1st, period! They will say different but when the chips are down, it will be demanded that you sacrifice all plans, vacations, anniversaries, birthdays, etc... For the good of the company.

Company Image

The company provides an invaluable service! The image of working there is not the reflection of reality however.

Job Security

I am no longer there. The company is stable but there were an instance of a long time employee (35 years +) being let go with 3 years left with the company.

Handicapped Accessibility

No

Workplace Safety

They are slowly implementing some safety training programs. It's hard to get employees on board when upper management doesn't follow procedure.

Challenging Work

There were a lot of tasks and ideas that I felt really good about only to have them torn down by upper management. I would end up feeling like a total failure for having an idea.

Inclusive / Diverse

If the idea is from upper management of corporate then it is golden. If it's from anyone else it is a stupid idea

Suggestions for improvement

  • Restructure of the company culture from the top down. Of course every business is in it for a profit. A good company can treat their employees with respect and dignity and make a decent profit. Darling ingredients is not one of those companies. Darling is profit first, second and third on the priority list. The equipment that Darling uses gets a lot more respect that the employees. It's sad, as it doesn't have to be that way, they choose to do it that way.

What I like about the company

They did provide lunch for office employees almost every day

What I dislike about the company

By legal definition, working at Darling was a hostile work environment. The upper management team was abusive, withheld information for me to effectively do my job, ignored questions and did what they had to do to look good at all costs. I would NOT recommend this company to anyone looking for work.
