Operations (Former Employee), Modesto – July 1, 2013
BD Growers overall has poor management. From Corporate Sacramento to newest facility in Turlock. Management operates in "silos' and uses old school managerial techniques to bully employees. Operating moto is: "The only two departments that matter are operation and sales. Sales because they sell the product and operations because they make the product...the – more... rest of you are jock straps...here for support!!!!" – less
receiving (Former Employee), Sacramento, CA – October 13, 2012
Pros: co workers/pay
Cons: mandatory overtime/management
The pay and the co workers were the best part of this job. Work hours we're long with mandatory overtime being told at the last minute. Not really a good place for balance of family life and work life.
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee), Modesto – July 4, 2012
Pros: very few
Cons: many... bad culture and values
BDG does have some opportunity for advancement, but management is full of condescending, arrogant, old people. Not all of them, but certaintly most of them. Blue Diamond offers a good benefits package and decent pay, but you're subject to working seven days a week during the busy season. I'm glad I worked there for as long as I did. Training wasn't – more... great but i still learned a lot. If it wasn't for terrible managing in some departments this may actually be a good place to work. – less
