    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.
