    Pros

    Exceptional best brand practices and training

    Cons

    HR is horribly insensitive and antiquated, family mobility's a must so it's hard on two career families and kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your HR officers and develop more family friendly career paths.

    Pros

    Great company to start your marketing career and gain multi-brand experience
    Given a great deal of autonomy and leadership opportunities early-on
    Solid marketing training for new MBAs
    Extremely well-respected marketing organization with powerhouse brands
    Many international opportunities into U.S.
    Smart, hard-working, professional peers
    Business casual dress code
    Employee-paid shuttle van from Manhattan to NJ location

    Cons

    Close to no opportunity at Director level or higher
    Career development can be too political
    Imports Manager+ talent from outside U.S. for U.S. roles (cheaper)
    Consolidation has led to extremely heavy workloads
    Bureaucracy can hinder speed
    Not very innovative
    Not enough cross-pollinization between Foods & Personal Care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities at the Director level and above
    Train Managers to manage (some are extremely smart marketers but terrible managers)
    Break down barriers and elitism between Foods & Personal Care
