6% profit sharing, unless disciplined (although they make it a point to point out they may not give it again next year). Merit bonuses ranging from 1% to 3% annually. Good work hours, very slow paced. Advancement is possible if you are willing to play the cut throat political games.
BG PRODUCTS INC. has lost the people, the leadership and the entrepreneurial aspects that made it great.
Operating two facilities with one staff, in debt, sales have slowed way down. Cut throat dishonest politics and yes men are being rewarded. Leadership is unprofessional, childish, inexperienced, angry and militant. Quality people are leaving, or getting fired. Executives will not take responsibility for the mess the company is in, they blame the employees and everyone else. The last five years have been a revolving door of Executive Management. Cost of living increases have stopped, no bonus program, executives drive gaudy company trucks while they slash merit increases... tasteless and bad for morale. Do more with less, work harder, etc.
BG has stopped investing in its people and has lost those leaders that will attract and keep good talent.
Advice to Management.
Current leadership is terrible! Wake up!
Insure managers are in place that have sufficient experience to understand the processes required and to make decisions based on the data available.
