    I worked at The Hershey Company part-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    Fix those cons!

    I worked at The Hershey Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, room for growth, nice benefits and perks.

    Cons

    I had a very negative experience during the brief time that I worked at Hershey. During the interview process, which was very lengthy, I thought it would be a good fit. However, shortly after started, I realized that the majority of my co-workers were religious/political conservatives who had no tolerance for anyone different from themselves. Many of my co-workers had been recruited from the local Christian college and their values reflected a small-town mentality of religious intolerance and bigoted beliefs. I had one co-worker make negative comments about both hispanics and muslims. I was disgusted to work there, and preferred not to socialize with my team on business trips because I did not agree with their way of thinking on anything. They quickly realized I wasn't one of "them" and looked for a way to get me out of there. They succeeded and found a silly reason to let me go - however, I'm so grateful in the end because I was not happy being part of that environment and would like others to know this ahead of time, what the company culture is like - if you aren't like that, stay far far away.
