Good while it lasted

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Sara Lee Food & Beverage full-time for more than 8 years

ProsAbove average compensation
Good benefits

I worked for the company for 10 years until I was laid off. I hold no ill will against them, but I wasn't offered any other positions in the organization...I was just let go.

ConsLittle room for advancement, they like to hire from outside the organization

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within. I personally witness the loss of a lot of strong talent due to lay offs and downsizing measures.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
