Pros

Small office so you have green light for decision making.
Working here is never "boring" as there is always something to do! With the organization being lean, you often wear several different hats and you don't focus yourself on just one mundane task.

Cons

Lacks processes and systems which can be frustrating at times.
Additionally, there seems to be minimal opportunities for movement within the organization.

    I worked at Nutricia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    First class products
    Good Heritage
    Good service offerings
    Good marketing
    Respected conferences
    Excellent nursing service
    Well respected company in the marketplace
    Danone vouchers for employees
    Efficient expenses system
    Good benefits - buy holidays, insurance, healthcare, child care vouchers etc

    Cons

    Management ruining a previously great company - strategy and business model flawed in a competitive marketplace.
    Inexperienced management
    Treated like children - very adult-child communication
    Unhappy and discontented employees
    Constantly changing the goalposts on strategy and focus from quarter to quarter.
    Poor car policy
    Pay scale all over the place across different roles
    On boarding a nightmare - lengthy, fractured process
    Bullying culture
    Very hierarchical structure - unable to have frank discussions with senior management without being reprimanded by lower level management
    Dreadful travel/accommodation booking process
    Losing many many experienced, respected, loyal employees through poor leadership and management but no concerns over this until a lot of business is lost
    Promote employees into positions that are clearly not ready for or respected for
    Knee-jerk reactions - reactive rather than proactive
    Unwilling to listen to feedback - received negatively
    Infighting between departments
    Very different cultures across different departments within the company - supposed to be OneDanone? No such thing in Nutricia.
    Pointless and endless teleconferences justifying other people's existence
    Don't follow their own codes or mission statement - just pay lip service to it
    A company where everyone is focused so much on their own performance review that they have lost sight of the bigger picture

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees!
    Sort out the management issues
    Get back to a business model that actually works for the competitive environment to keep it sustainable
    Stop the bullying clique culture
    Run the company as OneDanone rather than fractured divisions
    Remember ultimately it's about the patients and the products
    Enforce your own behaviours - live it, breathe it, believe it

    I have been working at Nutricia as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment and friendly colleagues. I absolutely enjoy being an intern there.

    Cons

    The company policies are quite conservative

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if managers encourage innovative ideas to tackle issues from interns
