    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
