Human Resources (Former Employee)
Hershey, PA

ProsWell known company, competitive hiring process
Great stepping stone and resume builder
Good employee benefits and perks
Awesome professional development and training options
Variety of events throughout the year employees are able to participate in

ConsCorporate politics is rampant and cult-like
Expectations are very high..lack of appreciation/reward for those who actually DO exceed expectations
Favoritism/Drama/fakeness prevalent among corporate management
HR management seems to think they are exempt from their own rules
Some managers/directors are willing to do anything to get to the next level (corporate greed/power)

Advice to Senior ManagementMore progressive thinking
Less fear of diversity
Demonstrate more genuine respect for ALL of your employees
Focus more on ethics/team..not self promotion/$$
Allow those below you to show the talents they possess without feeling threatened and/or feeling the need to suppress them.
