This was a company where you had to watch your back.

Pros

Incentives for managers were good at one time. Freedom to work from home as needed.

Cons

Poor management. In the 2 years I was a DSM, they went through six managers in the Division Manager position right above me. Constant change in directives. Unethical behavior silently condoned.

Advice to Management

When managers are caught in unethical behavior, they need to be immediately terminated. It is very demotivating to watch managers be retained as long as they hit their numbers, no matter what they do to hit them.

    Pros

    You get tons of experience working in and leading cross-functional teams. You get experience launching a large number of products each year.

    Cons

    No real brand building as in traditional brand management roles. No real consumer insights used in launching new products. Very hierarchal, with basic decisions being made my Global VP. Oftentimes, no exposure to senior management if you are a Brand Manager or below. Lots of turnover in marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Need to push decision making down to those that are working on the brands day-to-day. Utilize more consumer research and stick to it when proceeding with decisions.
