Pros

I drank the Kool Aid and believed that they really did VALUE THE PERSON only to discover that they really COULD CARE LESS about the person. Why so many reorgs all the time?? Fire/Hire/Fire/Hire/Fire/Hire/Fire ........................

Cons

Company going through ANOTHER reorganization! Lots of employees getting thrown under the bread trucks! So much for WE VALUE THE PERSON .................. NOT!!! Also benefits not very good and there is no health insurance plan except for a high deductible health savings account that you put your own money into.

Advice to Management

Stop pressuring your employees to lobby for you. I also refuse to read White Fragility!! (this is over the top stupid!!)

Pros

Really good paychecks. No micromanaging.

Cons

The bakery in zanesville, oh use to be a difficult job to land, with 401k, pension plan, stock options and great health insurance. Since being bought by Grupo Bimbo we get bare minimum benefits. No stock options or pension plan. The worst is the crap health insurance we're forced to have. Pretty much paying for everything out of pocket. Being a very manual intensive job makes proper insurance way more important. Not to mention that they add more business but not more equipment, running us drivers harder and harder, burning us out. Just a big corporation doing what they do best: putting profits over the well being of their employees.

Advice to Management

Local management are rock stars. We see you doing your best with what you're given. Corporate: Your workforce will crack if the deprivation of benefits and upward climb of work load continues. They need more equipment to do a more effective job and way better insurance to keep drivers from quiting. The benefits now make the job far from worth it.

Pros

Great benefits: Health insurance, PTO, 401K, etc.

Cons

Where do I begin: Management is in complete denial about their employee's need for work/life balance. Excessive work loads require regular overtime. Favoritism is rampant, along with cliquey office politics. Vendettas in the form of write-ups and threatened "disciplinary action" are common when employees stand up for themselves and establish work/life boundaries. During my 7 years there no holiday bonuses were ever given, although supervisors receive very large yearly bonuses. Diversity and inclusion is touted, but not practiced. Ageism is increasing throughout the entire company: the older workers are the first to go during lay-offs.

Advice to Management

The corporate culture at Bimbo is in dire need of change.

Great benefits: Health insurance, PTO, 401K, etc.
