Absolutely horrible management! Training is very insufficient. Culture in Customer Care is like a junior high lunchroom.

Kerry provides little to no training with 100% accountability to the trainee. Their leadership is full of inexperience

Lack of accountability. Fault is assigned from top down in a stepwise fashion. Management rearely owns mistakes, even mistakes repeated from one generation of employees to the next

Kerry self-promotes an "entrepreneurial spirit" - but what does that mean, really? I now know after many months of working in R&D lab in Beloit. Many reviews appear to be from angry production personnel or defensive management types, but if you are considering an R&D position at Kerry, know that you will likely get very little guidance, in general. "Sink or swim" immediately comes to mind. It appears to be directly related to management. Some leaders are better at LEADING than others. When interviewing, be sure to get input on manager's work style (from peers, NOT from the manager) and think long and hard before accepting what may seem like a great offer.
