Great if you value job security and salary

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I barely had time for personal stuff. I lost my creative juices because of the mandatory 12 hour shifts (15 hours if you consider the reporting procedure and commute). Night shifts are worst. Body clock was ruined. I was sick a lot of times. I was earning a lot but that just went to medical expenses. You won't have the freedom to live the life you want.

Pros

Great Benefits, Compensation

Cons

Long work hours, 12hr shifts, slow learning opportunities

Good company but they reshuffle their employees which will be hard for workers that has already settled and have families already

They are a good company and is one of the top employers in the country. However, the downside of it is since they are a nationwide company, the do reshuffle employees oftentimes which is hard for us who has settled down and already have a family. It is something you can’t say no to because it is already part of the work culture of the company. But overall, SMFI is a great company and I wished I never left.

Good experience for first time job seekers

Good experience for first time job seekers. You'll learn a lot in different aspects since workload is very diverse so you'd have a chance to be exposed to various aspects.

No work-life-balance

You are required to work mon-sat, sometimes even on sundays. There’s no proper training for a specific position. Some managers will just invalidate your feelings and sometimes you’ll question your self worth.

Very Fast Paced

The best thing about SMFI is that it continuously adapts to the changes in the food industry. The company is very proactive in developing team players who aspire to rise in the corporate ladder.

I gained a lot of skills through the learnings and experiences at work.

Every day is a new day of experience both challenging and the ones that were on a daily routine. I enjoyed my work there and it helped me build my career. I always have that sense of accomplishment whenever I leave the office everyday.

Very stable and high job security. But need to retire old souls.

Good long term job security and benefits. Highly bureaucratic and political. Needs to retire lots of old souls that are staying due to benefits. Centralized approval process and does not entrust employees to make business decisions.

Slow growth yet good for long term

Working environment and workplace culture is great, and accommodating. Low salary for early careers, and may take you many years before you can advanced into the next position. It is a good company if you want to have a stable income with great benefits. Not advisable for those who want a fast growth on their career.

Pros

Free lunches, Free Shuttle, Great Benefits and Medical Coverage

Cons

Slow-paced and growth, Traditional and does not adapt to modern changes, Office politics is very common
