This place is doomed by its own legacy.
Production (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAApril 23, 2015
Cons: Long days, hours, commitments, little respect or rewards
Horrible upper management. Good old boys mentality. Immature work environment. This place will never change and you will not be able to change it. They will give you impossible goals with impossible time frames, don't believe me...good luck.

Not a great place to work. Co-workers were rude. It was a very boring job. Some of the people I worked with didn't have the best attitude. Job was not reliable, went out of business.

Never mattered (Current Employee), PittsburghDecember 13, 2014
Pros: company store where the subpar soup and baby food is sold for cheap.
Cons: culture
Your work ethic and dedication will mean nothing to corporate. The overall goal of TreeHouse Foods is to maximize the stock price each quarter. No regard for the overall needs of individual production facilities or the employees therein. Be prepared to do the work of three people. As employees leave at the factory level, work is divided between those who remain, however that doesn't stop corporate from hiring more directors and executives or secretly promoting from within or bringing their "buddies" on board; extremely top heavy company. Poor corporate infrastructure to support individual business units, grey corporate policies that don't translate to the factory level, discrimination, and gross abuse of travel and related expenses by corporate are just a few of the negatives that will make you question why you continue to partake in the struggle at the factory level.

Cons: short breaks
Each day would start with a clear understanding of the days workload and what to expect. The workplace was fast paced, so it helped to be a motivated, self-starter. Generally speaking, if someone had a problem, others would pitch-in to help.

Good Environment
Food Technologist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh PAJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: communication between r&d, finance, and marketing.
Bay Valley was a great place to work, but my assignment was cut short due to the financial standing of the company. A typical day could include running a batch or two in the pilot plant and then heading back to the office to catch up on paperwork for other projects as well as formulation changes for others. During my time there I learned a lot about seeing projects from the preliminary stages in the lab through plant scale ups, as well as first production. Travel was necessary for much of the plant scale up, as there was limited capability in the home plant. While traveling, most of the day consisted of time in the plant monitoring production and overseeing testing of product as it came out of retorts.
