    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Danone North America full-time

    Pros

    -Good pay, especially for lax education/experience requirements -Good benefits, generous maternity leave

    Cons

    -Adversarial department managers looking to throw anybody and everybody under the bus. Nearly constant pushing of work into other departments. -Nearly complete lack of respect for the lab in terms of quality control. Managers/Supervisors consistently override the company/lab's quality parameters with "concessions" or force the lab to perform additional testing with little regard for lab workload or understanding of...

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring/promoting people simply because they're the only ones to stick with the company for an arbitrary length of time. Hire scientists to staff the lab, and then listen to them. Empower them to perform their job instead of leaving them in anxiety or outright fear at the reception they'll receive from management for finding problems or contamination.

    Pros

    Free Yogurt thats it !

    Cons

    Was great prior to integration, WW destroyed culture. Top heavy management specifically HR with little vision and zero hands on skill. In summary this is what will happen 1. Loss of Talent - Post integration strong talent left or will continue due to unrealistic expectation from senior upper management specially in HR & Marketing 2. Existing management will promote useless remaining talent to justify their...

    Pros

    Be invisible and life is good. Make as many mistakes as you can just be part of a click and don't worry.

    Cons

    West Jordan plant is filled with managers who are using GASLIGHTING and MANIPULATION to destroy every potential that walks trough the door. They all complain about French leadership but local UNQUALIFIED and NARCISISTIC Managers afraid of " Other" and " Different " are cornering everyone who is not part of the click. A lots of them upgraded from an operator to a Manager 5 years ago without any knowledge or training...
