Very poor culture.
Senior Sales Manager- Walmart (Former Employee), Bentonville, ARJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Corporate office, benefits
Cons: culture, work-life balance
There is very limited interaction between functional groups and management limits personal opportunity to contribute ideas that might have a positive impact on the business.There is definitely a silo mentality and communication has a defined hiearchy of who you are allowed to talk to. While the company has some very strong brands, they invest behind only a small number of them with innovation and marketing, yet expect to drive increased sales volumes and share based off of historical investment.The organization runs very lean and senior management takes great pride in comparing their low labor costs to other companies as a comparison to overall sales.

While the corporate office is awesome and cutting edge, I found the work environment restrictive and extremely stressful. I would not recommend working for this organization.

Not Bad
Case Packer (Former Employee), Centralia, ILMarch 31, 2015
The company as a whole seems to operate fairly well. The experience was rather fun, to be honest. I enjoyed what I did, and it was fairly straight forward. Sure I went home smelling like cake, but that is the worst thing I can say about it.

Lack of due diligence or employee recognition & promotion
Manager (Current Employee), Parsippany, NJMarch 28, 2015
Company has grown significantly. Many in senior management roles have gotten fired or let go, as there is blame for projects not going correctly, rather than recognition of systemic problems such as lack of resources or lack of due diligence. The company is generally slow to promote; common theme of employees not getting rewarded for delivering results.

Wonderful group
Corporate Benefits Manager & Analyst - Contract (Former Employee), Parsippany, NJJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: people & product
Cons: contract position
Loved working here. The people and the product and the culture are amazing. I would have stayed had a position in my expertise been available.

The mission of this company is to reinvigorate brands. So those wonderful food products you grew up - Duncan Hines, Aunt Jemima, etc are being repackaged and repurposed for today.

Fair work environment with overtime
Material Handler (Former Employee), Fayetteville, ARJanuary 1, 2015
Controlled work temperature with fair management. Learned how to allocate material in an efficient manner. Hardest part of the job is keeping tempo for over 12 hours a shift. Easiest part of the job is following regulation.

Fast Pace and Fun
Line Member (Former Employee), Imlay City, MIAugust 8, 2014
The job was very fast paced. When you are on the line if you have people that know what they are doing you will catch on very fast. The most enjoyable part is being able to relate to the workers and they are very friendly, Its pretty easy to find a car pool to join also

Package & Production Technician (Former Employee), Jackson, TNJune 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits, paid breaks, awesome co-workers
Cons: long shifts, poor management
A typical day at work Pinnacle Foods, is a day full of hard work. I learned how to operate machines and work along with others. My co-workers and I was a part of a high performance team. When a machine broke down we came together to get the machine back up and running in a timely matter. The hardest part of my job at Pinnacle was when people did not come in and perform up to their best abilities, that would make the job harder on the other co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was, working hard getting the job done correctly. When job is done and done right everybody are happy!
