Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Petersburgh, NYJanuary 3, 2018
If you are thinking about working for this company in production you may want to think again.The benefits are good if you can make it past 3 months, but not many do. They have a profit sharing program but it takes years to qualify. Also, they have a perfect attendance incentive, but if you're ever even one second late you lose it. Some of the people are nice, but most of them just ignore you and talk behind your back. You're either really busy or standing around doing nothing. If you like to get your hands dirty, work with PFOA's and sweat profusely then this might be the place for you. Not recommended for anyone unless you're really desperate for a job. It's as exciting as watching Teflon dry... Literally! I feel sorry for those who have to work here.

Miserable place
Animal Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Germantown, NYDecember 19, 2017
Very poor management skills and very clicky. If you dont fit in they make it miserable. The management often does nothing while the employees have a rediculous amount of work. The only reason people stay is the money and ok benefits.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Long hours, poor management

All I can do is laugh at this place.
Animal Care Technician (Former Employee) –  Germantown, NYMarch 15, 2017
So much favoritism, I've spent WAY too long at this place for just nothing!
The pay and benefits are awesome and that's how they get you to stay so long. I have never seen so much favoritism at one place before. So if you consider working here, be prepared, don't get on their bad side.

unequal rights for people
Shift Lead (Current Employee) –  Petersburgh, NYAugust 8, 2016
I have worked in a few different setting and this is by far the worst. They treat each shift differently and change the policy by shift. The worst at communication and unwilling to work with each employee. While there I have seen favoritism to employees like no place I have seen prior. As for the communication, I don't think the right hand knows what the left hand is doing especially when it comes to following the policy that is in the hand book.
Pros
Close to home for several people that work in the area
Cons
too many to list.

Productive and fun work place with a great culture
Belting (Current Employee) –  Petersburgh, NYJuly 10, 2016
Taconic is a blast to work at. Management is amazing and quite friendly. Management is also open to listening to new ideas.

Raises are offered, benefits are great and affordable and time off is generous.

The only downside to working at Taconic is the location.

fast pase pruduction
shipper, machine opperator and specialty (Former Employee) –  Petersburg, NYJuly 20, 2012
Basic tasks are consistent day to day but different orders help to make it more interesting. Mostly a friendly work place, hard to get along with some of the management. Several managers worried about other areas more than their own. Fixing to many things that were not broken. Managers wanted overtime to be done before regular shift hours. Need to pay close attention to details when maintaining orders and make sure its completed before packaging. Be careful to not clock in to early.
Pros
good benefits, quarterly bonus if production was up
Cons
production workers didn't have a paid lunch and need benefits to better fit workers
