Current Employee - Summer Marketing Intern  in  White Plains, NY
Current Employee - Summer Marketing Intern in White Plains, NY

Pros

The culture and people are great. Almost everyone is willing to help you and will explain what needs to be done. You learn so much since it's a smaller CPG where you see, hear, and do more. Plus lots of free yogurt, frozen yogurt, and Evian water to eat and drink every day.

Cons

Sometimes it's fast paced. Much of the direction comes from HQ in Paris.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pretty good overall. Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    -Great benefits and good salary

    Cons

    -Some managers are only looking out for themselves, very poor coaching and not a sense of a team
    - Poor communication at all levels; not recognition for any work done or in what direction to go
    - People that work hard and aren't highly "political" are often ignored or let go
    - Upper management does a poor job giving direction; there is never a clear idea on what the goal is
    - They preach CODE but very few people follow it
    - Very few people can be trusted or feel like a teammate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the people that work hard and have potential for growth. There are too many people in higher management levels that not only take credit for what others do, but they also give no sense of direction to an entire team. The lack of communication and direction is truly weighing down the company. So many people with potential have left the company or were let go.

    Cons

    -Sink or swim mentality
    -Very little coaching
    -Significant pressure to perform
    -Very little regard for work life balance
    -A lot of turnover due to above - junior people are in and out quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review pace of work of junior people to reduce turnover. Most people think of Dannon as a place to learn for a year or two and get out.
