Pros

Brilliant colleagues, opportunities to grow abound, and driven culture. It's a great place to learn the CPG world. Fantastic benefits.

Cons

Politics sometimes interfere with efficiency, hard to grow quickly in R&D, lagging behind other CPGs in terms of innovation and technology.

Advice to Management

Include your direct reports in the conversation. They'll appreciate being kept in the loop from a top down approach.

    Pros

    - The pay for HR interns is outstanding ($2,500+ bi-weekly and a $5,000 relocation package). - Very strong brand to put on your resume - High potentials are moved around a lot (lots of relocation checks and ability to get great experiences

    Cons

    - Very difficult to survive without a strong network (not bad in and of itself but who you know is sometimes more important than what you can do) - Hours are sometimes extremely long

    Pros

    Big company, many opportunities to network, certain departments are very great to work in terms of growth.

    Cons

    horrible management, poor use/waste of funding, redundant & unnecessary testing performed repeatedly in this dept, repetitive unexpected terminations.no room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Entire R&D dept is a complete mess. Actually provide effective & proper training for new & current employees so that you can progress as a division. No beneficial research being performed that can actually benefit the company or consumers. No team player/professional etiquette among employees and none of them work as team to get the job done and this is why you are behind on almost all of your projects. Manage time better.
