Machine Operator/ Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54495January 24, 2019
8 or 10 hour days would be much more productive I think. need to hire more employees to relieve stress on employees. can be very physical in fruit delivery when you dont have enough help!

No longer a great place to work
Finance (Current Employee) –  Lakeville, MAJanuary 19, 2019
This place has become very terrifying. Senior leadership doesn’t seem to have a clear path for turning the company around. Most people that still work here are looking for new jobs or trying to protect what they currently have. It’s unfortunate. It used to be a great place to work.

Total Turnover - Finance
Senior Financial Analyst / Corporate Finance (Current Employee) –  Lakeville, MANovember 30, 2018
The best way to describe Ocean Spray at the moment is a sinking ship. Leadership has been entirely overturned, multiple layoffs this year, and a depressed culture. The advancement at Ocean Spray does not exist, especially in finance. You basically have to wait for it to benefit your manager to promote or move you in the organization. The benefits are awesome, but good luck being able to take advantage of them. Leadership is so demanding (because quite frankly, they have something to prove) that rework is part of the daily routine, meetings, though infrequent, are useless, and the general atmosphere is exhausted and uncertain. Maybe once the ship is turned around this company will be better, but at the moment, don't look here unless you enjoy the struggle, redundant, and terribly unrewarding.
Pros
Wellness (Gym and classes offered during lunchtime, health coach available, cafeteria with healthy options, great outdoor space)
Cons
Advancement, job security, culture, atmosphere

Senior Programmer/Analyst (Current Employee) –  Lakeville, MANovember 20, 2018
Ocean Spray is a fine place to work. The work / life balance is excellent. From a compensation perspective the company is average at best. The company is privately owner and the perks available at some public companies, such as stock options, do not exist. Working at Ocean Spray is great so long as your primary interest is not maximizing income opportunity.

Poor Leadership and Political Environment
Technologist (Former Employee) –  MAOctober 30, 2018
Leadership - Not an unite leader team. Poor communication. Some managers have significant control over staff.

Innovation Barrier - short term vision that creates unnecessary road blocks and results in risk-averseness, slow action and micro managing.

The hardest part of the job - True innovators are not appreciated, politics rules over insight. Stress for endeavoring to bring new technologies to the company.
Pros
Good people, great workforce
Cons
Political Environment

Desktop Technician (Former Employee) –  Lakeville, MAAugust 24, 2018
Ocean Spray had a great environment. I was able to learn more systems like groupwise and assisted in migration of laptops to groupwise. The it group was a very friendly group and got the
chance to learn more about their hardware and software when we started using SAP.
