    Huge room to get lots of responsibility, be challenged, learn and explore, advance. Amazing company vision and values that make you strive and try your best to contribute. Great energy and spirit, delicious products.

    Company politics , super long hours and workload. While we have a beautiful set of values, they may get corrupted due to some managers' egoistic interests.

    Pros

    Free yogurt and water, good benefits. Nice Team building activities.

    Career growth is linked to being a good politician rather than a skilled professional. No long term strategy. Terrible work-life balance. Worst HR leader ever.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities to local professionals who know the market.

    I worked at Dannon full-time

    Pros

    Organization pays well, has good benefits. CODE is a great training program

    Cons

    No work life balance, Management top heavy, lack of communication down chain of command, CODE is taught but not followed. Lack of job définition

    Advice to Management

    Higher more staff or release under performers so top performers are not the only ones carrying the load. Skilled staff is lost to competitors because they are carrying the load because there is too much red tape for managers to go through to exit someone from the business. Compensation is greater that the value to skill ratio.
