I worked at The Hershey Company part-time for more than a year

Pros

They gave you the opportunity to work hard and set reasonable goals to be accomplished, they (for the most part) respected people and treated them as individuals, they were a very successful company and nice to have on a resume, they had a fast-paced atmosphere.

Cons

Difficult to advance along with potential. Micromanaged at times -- less autonomy than I would have preferred. Pay is dictated more by experience than results.

    I worked at The Hershey Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and company car. Enjoyed working with most of my accounts. All the candy you could ever want.

    Cons

    Continual changing of direction and culture. Major issues from entire team with DM with very little response from upper management. Very high turnover in the district and low morale didn't prompt change; however, numbers finally grabbed the attention of the office and that prompted change. Too little, too late. Many quality representatives had already either left the company or were fired for various bogus reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on developing a positive corporate culture because the one that exists just stinks. The field sales team is an integral part of the organization and morale just keeps getting lower and lower. Something must be done to turn this around.
