    Pros

    Innovative, collaborative, opportunities for growth. Fast-paced, exciting - never bored! Ultimately, the people make it work. Employees are passionate about our products, and our brands - they are dedicated and hardworking.

    Cons

    Need to be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment that is constantly changing and evolving to meet the needs of the business. Not necessarily a "con" but rather a call-out as that type of environment isn't for everyone.

    Pros

    Great culture, friendly, passionate co-workers, hi-growth company, fantastic product. I worked in the Vermont office, and I loved it there.

    Cons

    Too many balls in the air, new leadership causes organizational confusion and stress, chaotic pace resulting in lack of understanding of strategy. The HQ is shifting to Massachusetts, which is a con for me but might be a pro for others. Pay is definitely light compared to other companies of a similar size.

    Advice to Management

    Cascade the strategic vision more frequently throughout the organization. With so much going on at once and with people driving hard to deliver results, it can feel like you are drowning...

    Pros

    Good/ smart people, low cost benefits, free coffee monthly, beautiful headquarters building in Burlington MA, commitment to innovation

    Cons

    Work/ life balance is non existent, top down innovation development versus listening to customer needs, many strategic miss-steps in last 12 months, too many senior leaders versus employees doing the day-to-day work. ,

    Advice to Management

    The senior leadership team needs to spend more time with strategic customers and spend time with the KGM employees versus all day internal meetings. The C-Suite is top heavy. Too much legacy thinking. Serious lack of integrated marketing planning.

    Pros

    Great benefits, beautiful offices, innovative company, lots of training opportunities.

    Cons

    Top-heavy org structure with many senior level new hires and not enough managers. Lack of clear decision-making rights and planning processes. Culture is deteriorating - it used to be a collaborative, respectful work environment. Company is losing its heart for CSR.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your consumers and employees and build plans with their input.

    Pros

    The people who day in and day out work hard to keep creating the ultimate beverage experience in every life we touch (the do-ers not the managers/leaders).

    Cons

    Leadership is sadly lacking in the past three years. Unfortunately this company once truly cared about its people and doing great things in the world, now it is just another CPG company going after the almighty dollar. Not because the people who worked here wanted that but because the people who came in did.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the roots of what Green Mountain Coffee was and you might start turning a profit again.
