    I worked at Danone full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a good company to start your career in. you will be exposed to lots of learning experience and a diverse work place. there is a good proximity between top management and middle managers. it is a very friendly place

    Cons

    salaries are low compared to any other multinational in Egypt. There are lots of office politics and allies. you will often find favorites in every department and usually those favorites will be exposed to more opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you should put of focus on personal growth and equality. it is really sad to find such a great companies with such bad office politics.

    Pros

    Senior Management in Danone global are very open minded and helpful

    Cons

    They seem to miss the complexity of the emerging market and a lot of energy is spent to make them understand how a task needs to be accomplished in the MENA region and for them to approve it

    I have been working at Danone

    Pros

    Good values, working atmosphere, not excessively hierarchical, more activity oriented than process oriented which allows to take new directions relatively fast. Lots of room to succeed if you have leadership and want to get things done

    Cons

    The ability to be fast is hindered by insufficient focus on performance at a micro level; all focus on performance is on macro level and rather with short term perspectives
    Limited coaching, it can be swim or drown.
