It was great for my first twenty years

I worked at McKee Foods full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThey tend to do well in bad economic times. People will always buy cheap snack cakes.
Stability, many long-term employees.
Decent pay scale.

ConsWhile OD McKee was alive, and while his sons were directly involved in the company, innovation was encouraged and praised. Once the third generation took over, OD's catchphrase "There's a better way. Let's find it!" has been quietly set aside.
Nowadays, it's run just like any other heartless, clueless megacorporation, with the exception that (seriously) God is claimed to be its ultimate guiding force.

Advice to Senior ManagementOD made that company what it is. Get back to encouraging and rewarding innovative thinking. Let the grandkids quit thinking like MBA's and get back to thinking like small business owners.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros: They have a gym and dental and health (which they've… Cons: I have to constantly tell them about broken or items that are in disrepair, those items get put on "pass down".
