Quality Technician (Current Employee) –  Sturtevant, WISeptember 6, 2017
being on second shift is a little different than 1st or 3rd here at this plant. We are required to do most of the weekend wash check (So if you plan on getting wet Fridays or Saturdays are the best).

Pay and benefits are great. But breaks are unpaid required to work extra half hour to compensate.

Lots of Overtime!!! and it is required!!! Mostly when someone from another shift has off or there is a mandatory Saturday(which have been happening a lot).

Rules have been put into place because "QA is too distracting"
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Too much overtime

So many opportunities for growth, career change, and impact
Thought Leader (Current Employee) –  United StatesAugust 25, 2017
Kerry has been a great place to work in so many respects. The people here are some of the most brilliant minds in the industry and I grow every day from my interactions with them. The opportunities to not only grow your career but also change path, industry, product and location (globally) are endless.

While the work can be pretty intense, the benefits, perks, & employee engagement programs Kerry offers are great. They definitely expect a lot but give back 100 times over.

I find myself very fortunate to be part of such an incredible company.
Pros
Benefits, perks, investment in creativity and innovation, the people!
Cons
It's easy to over extend yourself with all of the exciting opportunities. Ultimately, if you stay focused and manage your time - balance is completely attainable.

Thanks for the review. While we too think our people are very smart and nice, Kerry was a start up over 40 years ago and our company funds are over 7 billion dollars. It appears you may have commented on us by mistake, but take a look around and let us know if there's a place for you at one of our global locations https://kerry.com/careers.

Food Scentist (Former Employee) –  indonesiaMay 26, 2017
They love to invest on people! sending the employess for training abroad and ensure that they got an appropriate skills on the decided position.
though they always slow related in job promotions, and job assignments and salary incriments. sometimes when you not political enough, your achivements are overlooked and discriminated.
also having a degree from western university is important (or you will be overlooked)
Pros
great investment on chosen people, (though this wont be an assurance that you will stay within the company).
Cons
a lot of works to do, low appreciations by benefits&salary&promotions, Too high politic internally, The environment is not good spiritually and mentally for long term

Production (Former Employee) –  Union City, CAMarch 4, 2017
Lack of communication between management creates a difficult work environment. Inexperienced managers that do not understand their roles but demand excellence from their employees. More and more responsibilities are placed on the same individuals because it is very difficult to retain new talent due to the lack of organization and leadership in some departments.

Commercial Finance Intern (Former Employee) –  Beloit, WIFebruary 24, 2017
Worked on projects, people are very friendly and approachable. I sometimes felt like the communication lacked a little bit. The HR was not very responsive. Had to send out at least 3 emails and 2 phone calls over the period of 3 weeks to get a reply back. I would not generalize it, but this was the situation I faced.
Pros
Good working atmosphere
Cons
Communication
