    I worked at Foster Farms full-time for more than 3 years

      I have been working at Foster Farms full-time

      Pros

      Small town company, nice people here and there - but scared to step out of their comfort zones.

      Cons

      Politics - Old School - Management is still in 1990 - Pay is horrible.

      Advice to Management

      REVAMP! Get out the old and bring in the new and young.
