    I worked at Bonduelle Fresh Americas (Ready Pac Foods) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people, but the good ones are quickly leaving the organization, actively interviewing or thinking about leaving in the immediate future. No other pros.

    Cons

    1. Location / Corporate Office - Located in Irwindale, an industrial wasteland. The facility is outdated, painted "poopy beige" without widows, natural light, a kitchen or updated cafeteria. Most likely will sit at a desk from the 70s. Pair that with an unsafe neighborhood/parking structure. Human Resources refuses to invest in a proper security department or third guard to walk female employees to their car at night....

    I worked at Bonduelle Fresh Americas (Ready Pac Foods) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Started out good! Really met a great deal of good people. I learned how to lead big teams and really challenge my way of thinking situations through.

    Cons

    To many revolving doors at all levels of the business. They do not pay nobody enough. They need to give the hourly employees a major raise to make it a competitive company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more than just above minimum wage!

      I worked at Bonduelle Fresh Americas (Ready Pac Foods) full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      High volume manufacturing and a top market contender in the fresh produce industry. Company has been manufacturing these products for a while and has the subject matter expertise to defend its position in the market. A lot of good folks come from popular brands with tons of experience who can make a real difference if enough support is given. With the acquisition by Bonduelle, the firm seems to have some cash to burn...

      Cons

      The company had a changing tone in the past couple of years which puts it at a major disadvantage. Some people with political motivations have unchecked power which is hurting the firm financially and leading to higher rates of turnover. Not so competitive pay makes this firm a launch pad for freshers and a wasted opportunity. The company has poor adaptation of technology in comparison to its competitors.

      Advice to Management

      Add more resources where needed and adapt to the technology changes, make powerful folks more accountable for their actions. Be smart and look where it bleeds!!

      I have been working at Bonduelle Fresh Americas (Ready Pac Foods) full-time

      Pros

      There are a lot of great people that work here. Products sold to employees at a significantly cheap price. Ability to own a lot of projects and learn a lot. Last minute fun events break up some of the everyday stress. Since the purchase by Bonduelle, there is a higher focus on important things like volunteering and sustainability. New female CEO seems promising.

      Cons

      Communication between departments is lacking. Feels like senior leadership takes a long time thinking about things but not doing things. There are a lot of politics that keep people from being able to move up. Need more junior staff to support the efforts being asked for by senior staff. Office facilities need an update. Doesn't have as many perks/benefits as other big companies.

      Advice to Management

      Developing and sticking to some processes would make a world's difference. Be more open and available. Be humble.

      I worked at Bonduelle Fresh Americas (Ready Pac Foods) full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Healthy products and lots of leftover food. That's it.

      Cons

      No transparency among execs, even though they talk about having it. Bonus never paid out anywhere close to 100% in 4 yrs. 2018 bonus was 15% paid out. No career planning or potential to move up Lack of accountability for many people who don't carry their weight Little strategic direction, lots of reactive moves that aren't thought out Company is in trouble and has already missed annual revenue targets

      Advice to Management

      You're losing young talent for a reason, look in the mirror. Company is way too top heavy, lose some of those VPs.
