    Pros

    Great products and great people to work with. Very diverse throughout the entire organization. Pay is above average.

    Cons

    Very minimal opportunities for advancement in the US. Poor people development strategies for anyone outside of sales. Very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Get people more involved in decision making and do not limit those decisions to just the people in New Zealand.

    Pros

    + Large - so easy to move around.
    + Positive leadership from the CEO.
    + Growth + Development opportunities.

    Cons

    + There is a huge amount of focus on the Fonterra values but I do not think the employees necessarily "practice what management preaches"
    + Can at times be focused on immediate results rather than long terms gains - potential driving factors of large swings in revenue ...
    + Constant restructuring is damaging the culture of Fonterra, too much change management is happening all the time.
    + Personally I think some of the Fonterra Management Team have conflicting views on the organisational culture of Fonterra.
    + SILOS!
    + You're experience at Fonterra depends ENTIRELY on the team you are in.
