Former Employee - High Turnover in Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

I worked at Danone

Pros

You can be promoted very quickly. We have seen secretaries promoted to entry level positions in marketing, supply chain, and sales in less than six months. But that is also a possible sign of finding a lack of qualified applicants from outside.

Cons

High turnover rate. The company has the lowest score for employee satisfaction feedback surveys annually. Managers and directors have no long term vision or experience when put into their positions. It is a mess and creates a bad environment for growth, so you end up looking for other opportunities.

    I worked at Danone

    Pros

    Experience in merchandising, direct and indirect sales. Training programs. Support from the management. Teamwork and loyality among the employees. Attractive social package.

    Cons

    Low salary. No possibility to grow in a short term period. Intensive travelings, which are not always connected with the main target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adding new responsibilities to the employees would allow an increase of their salaries and would bring them larger experience and ability to solve problems.
