    Pros

    Great staff, a sense of entrepreneurship, setting your own hours and schedule, and working from home.

    Cons

    Management can be delayed on giving feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to be reviewed more often and thoroughly. Also, the opportunities for full-time employment are taking longer than expected to pan out

    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.
