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

    Pros

    Work-life balance, at least in this department. My Manager enhanced this style. They don't call you on weekends.
    Great brand for your resume (leader of dairy products).

    Cons

    So much bureaucracy to make even a small change.
    Lack of technology difficults your day to day job (specially with meetings).
    Maybe it's not a con for some people, but a relaxing (messy) atmosphere difficults your work if it depends on committed dates.
    Due to postponements, projects feel like a never-ending journey
    Lack of world-class methodologies as Six Sigma and Lean to face and reduce waste problems (They focus more on short-term vision than long-term).

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing too much in the day to day operations try to dedicate some time to focus on long term actions that will lead to a reduction of waste.
    Invest in technology. Digital era is coming and you better start to combine operations + tech in order to maintain competitive.
