    Pros

    Pay check until you can find another job.

    Cons

    Where to start? From the outside this might seem like an innovative and collaborative place to work, but nothing could be further from the truth. You are discouraged from presenting ideas through behind the scenes intimidation. Promotions and professional opportunities are often without merit and reflect ones ability to lie and kowtow. Sexual harassment/discrimination is common.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your personal agenda get in the way of conducting business in a professional and ethical manner.

    Pros

    Forward thinking company with good CEO

    Cons

    Directors and Senior Managers do not see employees as a resource, rather as replaceable. Lower salaries due to thought that people are privileged to work for them in the Boise, ID area. Does not promote managers who have management skills while promoting people decent at their jobs and not giving them the leadership training they need.

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees what they need to succeed and treat them like the asset they are

    Pros

    Simplot Technology has opportunities to affect its businesses at a global scale, where business groups can push their individual missions, as well as the overall mission to bringing Earth's resources to life.

    As an individual contributor if you're willing to shift your role and fill in where someone is needed, you'll always have an opportunity to learn something new. Supporting operations internationally can give you a very diverse and rewarding experience.

    Managers and directors have opportunities to lead teams as they see fit within a private company that is looking at the long term goal.

    Cons

    Communication from different functions don’t travel efficiently. There are different levels of understanding to what the mission is.

    Advice to Management

    Change is inevitable, and has been a constant within Simplot Technology over the past couple of years. New initiatives will continue to change how people have worked. Leadership should improve communications that continue to relate the work to the "why."
