    I have been working at Bunge North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many opportunities inside the Plant to grow as a professional Excellent Safety Culture Personnel are very kind and helpful High level of pro activity from senior operators

    Cons

    HR takes very long time for hiring process Overwhelming work responsibilities due to lack of supervisors It’s located in a very small Mennonite Town at 1h 30min from the main city. Nothing to do in town Lack of support on employee’s transfers to another Bunge Plant

    Advice to Management

    Reinforce supervisor’s support

    I worked at Bunge North America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice, down to earth people. CEO and other very top (corporate) management care about employees and their families. Office staff policies that have been implemented have been improved over past few years. Generous PTO policy and great for recruitment. Decent (average) benefits. Offers 401k match.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, somewhere along the lines the message from the top does not trickle down. The District Managers/those that tread along the lines of corporate and field travel don't seem to care much for understanding and explanations, only numbers and profit at the expense of employees. Employees, especially those on the manufacturing lines, get spread thin. Vast amount of OT to where it might be dangerous. Career...

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little extra to have some type of vacation relief and boosting up hourly pay. Trust in your employees enough for a little flexibility. Try to understand the processes more to understand the difficulty in getting things done instead of always wanted to please the customer.

    I have been working at Bunge North America

    Pros

    Decent workload, management doesn’t follow through with expectations so assigned work tends to ‘taper’ off and no consequences.

    Cons

    Very poorly ran company. Very wreckless with money and when it’s actually needed there’s none available. Facilities are EXTREMELY dirty and that hurts morale. Safety standards are very poor despite managers telling us how important it is.

    Advice to Management

    See if there’s another company that will buy bunge and erase any memories of this poorly ran company
