    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People, brands, social responsibility, environmentally friendly (9 ZWL plants), global expansion/growth, opportunities for education and advancement, corporate culture, diversity

    Cons

    I gained 10 lbs in my first year! Dang, there's chocolate everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Philanthropic work is very personally rewarding to employees and keep trying to engage employees with "team spirit." I respect and admire the leadership of this company and that's why I want to retire here. Best company I've ever worked for and I've been working for 30 years in my career ... spent my last 4 years at Hershey and I'm never leaving :-)

    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Base compensation is best among its peers
    -Work/life balance is great

    Cons

    -Locations for job opportunities are disappointing
    -Bonus structure is weak compared to others
    -Management not willing to invest in training / employee development
    -Lack of real process change management leads to processes in constant states of flux
    -Communicated organizational mission and senior leadership decision making is not aligned
    -No accountability / ownership means failure can occur with no lessons learned
    -C-Tier talent level with almost no high performers

    Advice to Management

    -Accountability is nonexistent.
    -All systems are not in place to drive change, and those systems that are in place are not adhered to.
    -Recruit better talent or invest much more in adding capability to the existing workforce.
