    Pros

    Danone has a really good environment and they foster a very caring approach to their people. Compared to other FMCG employers, I would say they are a very organised company.
    Free massages too!

    Cons

    It seemed like there might not have been the option or ability for fast career progression as a lot of the mid-20's employees get poached because they haven't been promoted fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great for employees to have a very clear plan and expectation of career progression within the company that was more certain. For example, a meet your bonus for two consecutive years and receive a pay rise/ more senior position.

    I have been working at Danone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people on our team, but poor leader

    Cons

    Did not come together as one company. White Wave acting like they are their own company and not working Dannon. Everyone is looking for a job because everyone is afraid they are going to change the structure again

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and see that there is much turmoil in the field and no communication
