    Pros

    Marketing is truly the hub of Dannon. As a marketing manager, you are responsible for your entire brand's business. There is a lot of autonomy at Dannon - this is quite different from larger CPG companies.

    The international exposure in the office is a major plus. You will get to work with colleagues from all over the globe. There are also many opportunities to work at a global office.

    Cons

    Can be a fast paced company - particularly with innovation cycle. This can lead to some long weeks from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Resist the urge to recycle brands from europe

    I have been working at Dannon full-time

    Pros

    Free yogurt, salaries are OK and good commute if living in Westchester

    Cons

    Very short term focused, constant change of directions
    Zero analytical thinking- decisions mostly based on gut or what the HQ in France wants
    No funds for training beyond basic company overview
    Poor senior leaders with very little management experience (especially in Sales and Marketing)
    Upward mobility stops at Manager level (few Director spots are ever open)
    Resource constraints in R&D - innovation is stifled by too many random ideas submitted without proper analysis and lack of focus

    Advice to Management

    Hire Americans in top executive positions who have have experience in building strong leaders and retaining top talent. Get rid of execs (expats) who are looking for 3 year short term results and moving to next job.
