    Pros

    Great at packaging cheese. Some good people trying to make it better.

    Cons

    In many departments, one group is blaming the other and neither department will accept responsibility. Managers who are promoted seem to forget other support departments that they were a part of don’t support them anymore – like not showing up to meetings to support these groups (example; food safety and safety). The only organization I know that wear these weird metal badges for your name, just make a badge with your picture so you can swipe in like a normal company. Too many top managers, directors, vp’s that talk a good game but aren’t doing anything. Elitist attitudes behind the glass doors, plenty of people being paid well over 6 figures with NO knowledge of what they're doing, people running departments who've NO experience in that particular arena. Some of the reviews I read on job sites and what the propaganda department say makes me almost wretch to the point of a panic attack.

    I worked at Sargento full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nice facilities well maintained, on site health and wellness center, excellent flexibility for corporate staff. People genuinely care. Lots of changes... good and bad.

    Cons

    If you’re not local, you’ll never fit in. Benefits and flexibility at corporate are created by the hard work and scrimping of the production people that are not appreciated. Behind other food industries in lean, six sigma, quality, and food safety.
