Impossible Foods Inc. is a company that develops plant-based substitutes for meat products. Founded in 2011, and headquartered in Redwood City, California, the company's stated aim is to give people the taste and nutritional benefits of meat without the negative health and environmental impacts associated with livestock products.The company researches animal products at the molecular level, then selects proteins and nutrients from plants to recreate the experience and nutrition of meat products.
The company's signature product, the Impossible Burger, was launched in July 2016, after years of research and development. The company also makes a plant-based sausage product that started being tested on pizzas sold by Little Caesars restaurants in May 2019.
A upset former employee said this in a review about the work environment "Good luck if you work for Impossible Foods and prepare for back stabbing by managers and coworkers. By the way Redwood city employees look down on Oakland employees, so you will feel the racial disparities."
Former Employee - Anonymous says"If you have your own ideas, no one wants to hear it. Matter a fact, keep your mouth shut and do just what's expected of you and you'll be fine. Be afraid to speak up, because there are repercussions. Don't care more about the company than they care about you."

They should however; bring in higher level sales and marketing employees that are more familiar with how the industry works rather than simply bringing in employees that meet basic qualifications."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"In the last months we've been asked to do the impossible. Work life balance, what's that? Soooo much overtime is expected from people at the plant, and not working as hard as others (12+ hour days) makes you stick out. Management has crazy expectations, and does not listen to the employees."
