    The current manager usually achieved goals by threatening the employees, he doesn't know how to motivate his team. Poor marketing plans, courses prohibited. No growth plan. Bad process support.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Danone Water full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There weren't any pros to working here. The only reason I gave them 1 star is because no stars is not an option.

    Cons

    Culture was awful, leadership followed "do as I say, not as I do" model HR was completely useless in employee issues French employees were constantly talking about how "stupid" Americans were to not buy $2 branded bottle water from France and instead drank American water No career advancement I was told nothing but lies when I was recruited If you speak against or report bad behavior of a member of the CODI be prepared to have your credibility called into question while you watch that person get promoted I actually had a VP get drunk and tell me which of the girls in the office he liked looking at and which he didn't in graphic detail Constant layoffs and transitioning due to bad business decisions by management Management never held accountable for any actions

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and bring in all new leadership team that will hold each other and the employees accountable

    Pros

    Great staff, a sense of entrepreneurship, setting your own hours and schedule, and working from home.

    Cons

    Management can be delayed on giving feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to be reviewed more often and thoroughly. Also, the opportunities for full-time employment are taking longer than expected to pan out
