Pros

*Flat organization - a lot of access to upper management
*Management really cares about professional growth, and their employees
*Gym in all buildings is really nice
*Pretty big focus on health within the company

Cons

*Very silo'd in that it is tough to move between job functions
*Basically have to start as a sales rep and move up --> tough to gain entrance in other positions
*Some work very hard: poor work/life balance
*Hershey can be a boring area if you are young
*Takes forever for decisions to be implemented

Advice to Management

Stop focusing on getting the most data about a problem--it causes indecisiveness. Take 20% of the effort and get 80% of the result.

    only 21 hrs, low pay raises

    Give people more hrs and more money. When you can have a car at your trade show to give away you can give your part time employees better pay, and opportunity for advancement.
