bonne entreprise
technicienne de laboratoire (Former Employee) –  Louviers (27)November 8, 2019
entreprise qui m'a permis d'ajouter sur mon cv une compétence que j'avais vu uniquement au lycée.

le travail d'équipe est plutôt présent.

j'y ai travaillé le week-end et je trouve que l'ambiance y est plus sympa et moins stressante, on continue à faire notre boulot normalement et de façon rigoureuse mais en étant moins stressée.
Pros
salaire
Cons
peu de reconnaissance du travail du laboratoire

It’s a one way street...
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 28, 2019
Sadly there are not many opportunities to advance within this company. There is a lot of internal politics which can make the working environment very frustrating and discouraging. Promotions are promised during the initial job interview and hiring process but rarely followed through.
Pros
Free chocolate
Cons
Office politics, no room for advancement

Chaotic work processes and procedures
HR Assistant (Former Employee) –  Zürich, ZHOctober 28, 2019
Structure of organisation (Corporate, Global Cocoa and 3 regions) make for a confusing work environment where, often, there is overlap of roles and responsibilities. Overall operating structure has not changed in 4 years, 3 CHRO's in 4 years, too much power rests with executive committee. If the structure would be streamlined and the management 'fear factor' removed, Barry Callebaut would improve its performance dramatically.

QA coordinator (Current Employee) –  Bethlehem, PAOctober 27, 2019
I gave Barry high 3. I loved working with my coworkers and made my day a lot better the job was very easy, but management were terrible you had leads that did not know what they were doin making the employees work and day harder than it was. They didn’t not know how to talk to people And treated all employees unfairly. Barry Callebaut would be an excellent job if they changed their management team

Poor Everything
Line Operator (Current Employee) –  Saint Albans, VTSeptember 28, 2019
Management sucks, they treat you like a joke. The equipment runs like garbage and management doesn't want to bother to come and help the line operators fix it 99% of the time. The only enjoyable part of the job is talking with some of the other people that work there when you're not running around like a chicken with your head cut off trying to keep all the terrible equipment running to produce good product. Not all shifts are terrible, but they're still all pretty bad. The workplace culture is one of condencending nature and high stress levels.
Pros
Some of the people you get to work with. The pay is better than most other places in St. Albans
Cons
Management sucks, The hours and lengths of the shifts suck, A lot of the people there suck, The equipment sucks.

Working at Barry Callebaut
Candy Packer (Former Employee) –  Dunmore, PASeptember 19, 2019
Working with this business was a different experience I've worked factory jobs before, and to me we didn't move around enough so it was boring to me. I started out at 12 hours, then they switched to 8 hour shifts.

Work hard. Get less.
Process Engineer (Current Employee) –  Region EMEASeptember 10, 2019
Nice product.Nice colleagues, in general. A good working environment, with lots of opportunities to learn on the job. If you want to work hard , with dedication and passion without expecting much as return, this is the workplace you will like.The work load goes up as the company grows, but the review of number of resource and review of salary vs. workload is not done. Typical experience after some time in the company: higher workload, longer work hours with the same pay. Discussing salary review even with a new job description and a wider scope of responsibility is nearly taboo.The Barry Callebaut Values is shown on our desktops and on the walls, but I think not many of the managers care about it.Bad management behavior gets tolerated, and shoved under the carpet.

Anonimo (Former Employee) –  Escobedo, N. L.August 10, 2019
Empresa es buena, buenas prestaciones, 6 % ahorro, 75 % prima, aguinaldo, utilizades, sgmm. No cuenta con comedores ni transporte.

Pero existe mucha conveniencia profesional, es dificil cambiar de puesto, promociones a menos que tengas muy buena relación con los jefes.

En el caso de aumentos, RH, te hace muchas citas para solo posponer lo que estás solicitando.

En lo vi en la planta existieron problemas con jefes y por sus "conocidos" nunca les hicieron nada, se hacen de la vista gorda, aun que causaron paros durante 15 días.

Lo anterior se presenta en todos los departamentos, ejemplo, prohibido entrar a la planta si tienes maquillaje/ uñas o aretes, pero el equipo de calidad (gerente) no lo hace y asi ingresa a la planta con todo.

En resumen la empresa es muy buena a nivel global. Pero a nivel local, falta cultura y empatía, por lo antes mencionado.
Pros
Prestaciones y salida a las 4.30, los viernes a las 2 pm (home office)
Cons
"Conocidos o conveniencia" para tu desarrollo interno.

Work/Life Balance
AP Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 28, 2019
The work/life balance was not great due to being understaffed for the workload. In certain departments they are more concerned with the bottom line not the well-being of the employees.

Organized, Respect, Patience, & Understanding
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Dunmore, PAJuly 24, 2019
They are very understanding & patient. They have a safety meeting every month. The work is at a quick pace but very organized. They treat their employees fair. No lying, no favoritism, no abuse of any kind, & respect. They listen when u have something to say & do something about it. They make u want to work there by the way they treat the employees.
Pros
Great pay, great benefits, respect & understanding
Cons
None that I can think of right off hand.

Not recommended if you want a life
Line Operator (Current Employee) –  Saint Albans, VTJuly 18, 2019
Long hours, very hot at times, poorly managed, favoritism, little family time, odd hour shifts, no weekends, lack of staffing, no incentive, little to no training, limited help on production floor, equipment failing daily, very stressful, never recommend anyone to work here, people seem to hate their jobs, for food manufacturing I expected it to be cleaner, regret ever having applied here

Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 13, 2019
while working for Barry, you really begin to realize how much upper management is trying to improve overall. as of recent, there has been very high turnover which is most concerning
