    Pros

    Benefits brought me here and have kept me here.

    Cons

    The top two in control need to leave. Been on an sped up decline since the arrival of them. Upper management fails to understand processes. They have people in places who are too incompetent to see that things are failing. They brush things under the rug. Production is a joke. The manager and coordinators.. come on. They are working their people to hard with "mandatory OT" with skeleton crews. Weather it's adding vats or increasing cheese production. Production quality has gone down the drain but they want to celebrate the most cheese made. Yep, let's celebrate making undergrade product. Taste delicious I bet. The plant managers refuse to open their eyes to the joke this place has become. Do any actual employee engagement survey and don't end it early due to not getting the answers you want. You'll see. This place is toxic. Maintenance, Cheese, Whey and Warehouse management.

    Pros

    Benefits were great. Time off much needed.

    Cons

    Consistently pressured to produce #'s instead of Quality. Core values are not how the company is operated anymore. Management wasn't open to different approaches to complete tasks.
