A company in search of a direction
Group Product Manager (Former Employee), Brea, CAFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: southern california location/strong foodservice business
Cons: few promotion opportunities/layers of management
A typical day was managing 20 -30 projects, updating activities and timelines, 3+ meetings and managing unrealistic expectations There were too many projects for available resources to handle. I learned that managing unrealistic expectations is futile and that more Chiefs don't help get the work done. My co-workers were very capable and experienced – more... much the same thing. The hardest part of the job was knowing that you accomplished more than was humanly possible, but it didn't make a dent in the workload. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with competent, dedicated people. – less

Logistics (Former Employee), Ontario, Ca.April 8, 2013
Pros: management is so disconnected they dont know or care whats going on.
Cons: management is so disconnected they dont know or care whats going on.
Terrible place to work. The management does not care about It's staff. Most of the employees there are miserable. No communication and lots of threats. The HR department is non existent just hot lines to call with no real help. Do yourself a favor skip this place trust me you will be sorry if you don't.
