    Pros

    Satisfied with Pay.
    Good Product lines.

    Cons

    Terrible treatment of people and there workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need for more consistent leadership. 10 years ago the company had sales of $5.3 billion.
    Today, same sales with less people. Work load to heavy, reason why people are leaving and will continue to leave.

    I worked at The Hershey Company

    Pros

    *Flat organization - a lot of access to upper management
    *Management really cares about professional growth, and their employees
    *Gym in all buildings is really nice
    *Pretty big focus on health within the company

    Cons

    *Very silo'd in that it is tough to move between job functions
    *Basically have to start as a sales rep and move up --> tough to gain entrance in other positions
    *Some work very hard: poor work/life balance
    *Hershey can be a boring area if you are young
    *Takes forever for decisions to be implemented

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on getting the most data about a problem--it causes indecisiveness. Take 20% of the effort and get 80% of the result.
