I have been working at Danone

Pros

Fast Paced, tons of projects to get involved with, great brand name

Cons

HR is very uneffective and is has very little impact on employees general well being and is mostly concerned with passing a good image to corporate HQ , not backed up by actual initiatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For HQ´s HR staff: dig deeper into the affiliates HR practices - don´t be fooled by reports and good personal marketing done by HR directors.

    Pros

    Dynamic company where if you dare to dream and have the passion to make it happen, you can succeed. All depends on your ability to sell, push and influence others on your ideas.

    Cons

    The company is also very demanding on short term results despite its long term strategy. However, the company does not seem to understand that "working hard" or doing a lot does not necessary mean performance. A lot being done but very little significant performance or break through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fewer and fewer top management exhibit the company values these days which is what makes employee proud of the company. The company need also to be open and honest with people by not accepting mediocre performance if the company wants top performing results. Be empathic but not apologetic with low and non performers. If not everyone is frustrated in the course.
