    I have been working at Daisy Brand full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy job, lines automated so you just have to keep plugging in cups, lids or boxes and watch the machines work.

    Cons

    Many of us took pay cuts to come to work here with the promise of a great culture and that pay would catch up, but the management is not trustworthy and the pay increases don't happen. Upper management used to care about employees, but not anymore. It's just a job. 4 weeks' PTO sounds great, but with only a few paid holidays, you really come out even at best. It's just a job. No great culture, pay or benefits.

    Advice to Management

    First stop lying then stop making promises that you know you aren't going to keep. Then stop taking credit for others work and accomplishments.

    I worked at Daisy Brand full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job security and good benefits. Decent pay.

    Cons

    This company couldn't care less about individuals, managers are only out to make themselves look good, forced to work on holidays, long hours, inconsistent schedules and work distribution is completely skewed. There is no opportunity for advancement in this company and be ready to have a horrible schedule for 5+ years before ever being presented with day shift.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility once in awhile and listen to your workers, too many talented people come in and out for such a small company.

    I worked at Daisy Brand full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    PTO 4 weeks, but don't use it in the beginning of the year.

    Cons

    Leadership sucks so if you're looking for a job that you can skate bye without doing anything , this job is for you. Professional development is none existent, do not be sold during the recruiting process about how you can move up in the company. Your professional growth will be none existent for sometime. Packaging Management, has to be the biggest hypocrites around. One will schedule a meeting for 530 and come... into work 30 mins after the scheduled time. The other will make production decisions from the comfort of their couch after they put in a 5 to 6 hour day.

    Advice to Management

    Lead as you would want your employees to be productive, put forth the effort of setting the example and standards. Deployed a professional development strategy to ensure the growth of your employees

    "Best left to Friends and Family"

    I worked at Daisy Brand full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits - PTO, medical/dental, etc.

    Cons

    Very much a "good ole boy" system - friends and family will go far within the company. There is no true HR program - no performance objectives, no performance reviews, no coaching/mentoring...when it comes time to let you go, it's not tied to non-performance. Ownership/management cares little about the employees. They talk a lot about culture, but it's likely because they wish they had one (or they are trying to... convince themselves of something).

    Pros

    Great benefits 4 weeks vacation

    Cons

    Management doesn’t follow through with what they say Management likes to blame people when the original problem is their fault. Scheduling is horrible they promote based on friendships instead of merit or time in. They say they are fair and treat everyone equal that is not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be leaders instead of just managers
