    Pros

    I can't think of one good thing this company does . They do not treat there employees equal.
    I am surprised they are still in business!

    Cons

    Don't get hurt or have cancer. They will get rid of you. If you aren't involved with certain clicks. Horrible conditions, nobody cares, only there for a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Be Humble or leadership classes.

    I worked at Danone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There weren't any pros to working here. The only reason I gave them 1 star is because no stars is not an option.

    Cons

    Culture was awful, leadership followed "do as I say, not as I do" model
    HR was completely useless in employee issues
    French employees were constantly talking about how "stupid" Americans were to not buy $2 branded bottle water from France and instead drank American water
    No career advancement
    I was told nothing but lies when I was recruited
    If you speak against or report bad behavior of a member of the CODI be prepared to have your credibility called into question while you watch that person get promoted
    I actually had a VP get drunk and tell me which of the girls in the office he liked looking at and which he didn't in graphic detail
    Constant layoffs and transitioning due to bad business decisions by management
    Management never held accountable for any actions

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and bring in all new leadership team that will hold each other and the employees accountable

    I worked at Danone full-time

    Pros

    Free yogurt that you get in the office..thats about it!

    Cons

    Unaligned and dysfunctional setup. They can restructure the organization in a day and from one department shift you to another(despite your career path) or simply ask you to leave! With no clear reasoning. Too much politics and management makes fake plans till their temporary tenure and the lower management takes the brunt of their mistakes. No job security or even department security..they could shift you from supply chain to research! No clear career paths and everyone is working in circles and trying to make the other look bad, instead of focusing on the present problems in hand. No strong leaders and airheads running the show...!

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and share your worries with the lower management
    Work as a team, and not a dictator set up on which you alienate the hardworker and put your mistakes on a poor scapegoat. Own up to your mistakes and solve them. stop the blame game!You will lose and are losing good employees who will never even think of ever returning back
