    I worked at Danone as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dynamisme, la prise d'initiative est encouragée, les locaux sont agréables (site de Rungis, Danone Eaux France), organisation flexible, moyens permettant de traiter des projets intéressants. Conditions salariales très appréciables.

    Cons

    Esprit corporatif très prégnant : on peut se voir "reprocher" de ne pas avoir été à telle soirée ou tel événement. Solidarité limitée entre les salariés "historiques" et ceux intégrés dans des parcours de carrière

    Advice to Management

    Cultiver cette culture d'entreprise en prenant soin d'embarquer tout le monde, et continuer avec cet esprit "start up" (marketing, supply chain notamment).
