Working at Bay Valley Foods in Pittsburgh, PA: 3 Employee Reviews

Director of Engineering

"Run Away. Empty Promises!"

What do you like about working at Bay Valley Foods?

"The challenges that exist and accomplishing those to try and make it a better place to work. At times, you really have to go to the carpet to justify what you need to make it all better, but it's a good challenge."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be careful what you're promised before coming on board with this company. I've been waiting for some time to get to the next level in my career. There are much better opportunities out there than this company. Stay away from the Pittsburgh factory. There's almost no leadership and there's a cancerous culture that undermines others that are not in the right group or groups."

What don't you like about working at Bay Valley Foods?

"The lack of leadership and direction that's given. There is no and there hasn't been a plant manager at my facility in several years. The unethical behavior that continuously goes on with little to no accountability for those who violate, especially from an environmental perspective. Too much of a culture of if you're not in the clique, then they have it in for you."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Make more sound and resonable decisions. The decisions that are made and lack of making the tough decisions are scary for the life of the facility and the business. Instill some leadership at the Pittsburgh facility. It's like a ship without a captain and the people, salaried and hourly, are out of control due to this."

Manager

"Started off promising, but went down hill from there"

What do you like about working at Bay Valley Foods?

"The people who worked for me were conscientious and wanted to succeed and see the company succeed."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be careful what you're told. Know what your expectations are and then expect them to change. Know what tools and resources exist to help you succeed in your position. I had little to none. Within 5 months of me being hired, facility upper management/corporate management let go of my only two salaried direct reports and expected me to continue to have the same success....ridiculous."

What don't you like about working at Bay Valley Foods?

"The good oleboy networking that goes on and the hidden agendas that exist. The lack of leadership at the facility and the lack of accountability that existed."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Communication needs to go both ways. There's a big disconnect between corporate and the facilities as for the direction that needs to be taken. Be more responsible environmentally and with safety. Personnel are going through the motions."
