Kerry is a great place to learn about the food industry.
Growth and advancement is also part of their work culture.
Benefits are great but the pay could be more.

Fast paced and rewarding company to work for.
Production Manager (Current Employee) –  Evansville, INOctober 25, 2018
Challenging work environment in the food coatings division. Working at the local plant is more like a "Family" atmosphere, as management and hourly folks work together, and rarely have disagreements in the work area. Teamwork is an everyday occurrence amongst all the ranks. There are a lot of challenges, as the regulations with food quality is changing for the more stringent yearly, and overcoming some of these challenges can be taxing. The camaraderie always seems to work out.
Pros
Exciting team orientated working conditions
Cons
Can be stuck at a machine until relief operator spells you for breaks, depending which department you work in, there can be many 7 day work weeks.

Not a fun atmosphere... most employees were miserable to be there but the wages are high
Lead operator/Teamleader (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INOctober 15, 2018
I did not have a pleasant experience with Kerry Ingredients... Not only was i harrased by the union stewards because i was promoted into a leadership position shortly after hire... But the company is not wanting to honor my injury which was documented during my employ... still calling daily to get mandatory surgeries for my injury
Pros
Lots of money to be made
Cons
No life outside work, expected to work minimum of 60hrs up to 84hrs in a work week

Different kind of culture
Regulatory Affairs Specialist (Former Employee) –  Beloit, WI 53511October 14, 2018
Kerry has pretty good benefits for the demographics. Management doesn't do much, does not give much direction. Management tends to play favorites.
There is a big turn-over in employees and management.

Kerry is a great place to work
Sales Planner (Current Employee) –  Beloit, WIOctober 12, 2018
Kerry truly is a great place to work, however, you must be a self-starter and able to work independently with minimum direction. Definitely some great opportunity to advance within the company.
