    I have been working at Pinnacle Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Talented people and great brands. I really do enjoy working with the people around me.
    - Fast paced, always working on something new and different. Never bored.
    - The company is maintaining its winning mentality and entrepreneurial culture despite its growing size.
    - Lean organization, which creates an opportunity to grow and advance if you take ownership of your own career.

    Cons

    - “Scrappy”: Systems and processes still in its infancy, but company is finally investing in these capabilities
    - Lean organization can also be a challenge at times. Need to be organized, good at prioritizing and influencing to stay on top of your work.
