I worked at McKee Foods

Pros

I can't speak for the manufacturing operations, but in salaried business process areas, it is a relatively good company to work for. They are very good at hiring and retaining excellent people, so there is plenty of talent and a "nice" atmosphere is valued and maintained.

Cons

There is more than the typical amount of management dysfunction. Silos of authority are sacrosanct causing logical absurdities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some good management consultants to totally redesign the management structures of the company, then implement at least most of the recommendations.

Centralize Information Technology authority and implement a cohesive IT strategy throughout the company.

    I worked at McKee Foods

    Pros

    Pay and work schedule was ok.

    Cons

    Wear steel-toed shoes for the eight hours of work. Work on concrete floor with no mats. Go up concrete steps to break area. Heavy lifting. Disastrous mess when machines backed-up.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    Weekends off, lot of paid time off

    Cons

    Have become more pushy, used to be family friendly. Now it seems they don't care about us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the current operating system. It adds constant stress to our lives. What used to be something I loved is now just a job, and one that I hate. So many are quitting. This needs to be addressed and we need to know why this is happening.
