Quality Assurance Technician II (Former Employee) –  Thornton, ILFebruary 11, 2019
Working in the lab,was great. The team was like family. Being able to provide good quality foods was the focus of our role. Inspecting each and every ingredient and finish product to ensure the customer was reaching the best was the highlight of everyone's day. Management was involved with each department, commutation was a goal and each department achieve that.

Isn't what it once was
National Accounts Manager (Former Employee) –  Brea, CAJanuary 12, 2019
Ventura has gone from a customer focus to expecting customers to bend to Ventura's limitations. The company does not seem to have the vision it once did and top leadership doesn't have a clue.
Pros
Great people work at Ventura....that's all that keeps it competitive.
Cons
Way out of balance. Sales works long hours, accomplishing litte.

Standard Factory Job
Quality Assurance Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) –  Waukesha, WIJuly 31, 2018
The Coworkers really make the job worth it.
Day to day life includes the production and packaging of thousands of pounds of condiments which is checked over by Quality personal.
Typically the job is laid back and not too demanding however the management is the biggest down fall. Failures fall squarely on the production management team which often has issues addressing daily problems that arise. This can add stress to employees and create difficult work environment and culture.

Big Changes within short period of time
Senior Internal Auditor (Former Employee) –  Brea, CAJune 14, 2018
Ventura is a great place to work. Always have the teamwork spirit with employee with tenure longer than 5 years, but not so with the new ones. Lots of changes in every level and high turnover in high and middle management. At the end of the day, it's all about numbers not the people anymore.

Lots of big changes in such short period of time (5 years).
Pros
Development/Education
Cons
Teamwork culture is slowly going away

It is a good place to learn to work as a team and to leave to work in a production type environment. I would reccomend it as a job for someone who wants to be part of a team

Loved working for Ventura, great, great company to work for. The only reason resigned from Ventura was the commute. 49 miles one way.

I learned so much throughout my years at this employer.

too far from home.
