    I have been working at Schwan's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Schwan's has drawn a lot of really smart people - this keeps me on my toes. This is a family company, despite the passing of Alfred and Marvin. Many of the principles of the founders still resonate today. I have been given many opportunities and look forward to more.

    Cons

    Only downside is that it is a privately held company that adheres to public company practices. While I certainly care about quarterly and yearly results, sometimes, the right decision is right. We need to be able to take advantage of doing the right thing because we can, not because the ROI is less than 2 years,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to reinvigorate the family atmosphere at the depots. They are the backbone to the process and we need to ensure they have the same sense of engagement as those in the office.

    I worked at Schwan's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people that work at Schwan's.

    Cons

    Claim to want to keep the best people, yet seem to go outside for most hires that they make.
    Large amount of middle age middle manager's that have no desire to advance their career thus blocking any younger talent from climbing the ladder.
    Stuck in a 1970's-1980's mindset on the business.
    One of the only businesses capable of employing recent college grads so they can name a salary and you are kind of stuck if you want to stay in the area.
