    Great industry with long term stability. Generally vibrant and intelligent workforce. Perceived poor management.

    Don't go there!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Moscow (Russia)

    ProsI can hardly figure out any pros.

    ConsTop management is rough and arrogant, the salary is average (unless you are a French passport holder...), with lots of office politics. Firefighting from morning to evening with no long-term action plans. Hard to learn anything from them on-the-job, also there is no formal training because “it has a cost”. Safety rules have no priority (unless the cost of their non-implementation is higher than the cost of their implementation). A French family business with the size of a global conglomerate, not yet enough to call themselves a “multinational” company, at least until they will build a Corporate culture and making money will no longer be their first and only priority.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more international and less French, you can only become better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It will take time to establish corporate culture for Lactalis and become mature organization.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
