    Disorganised management allows you to learn things from the scratch because you are on your own

    I worked at Ferrero (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good part-time benifits including mileage, paid vacation, 401k plan. I loved the flexibility of making out your own schedule and stores to visit. I had great supervisors and was rewarded with bonuses and annual pay raises for all my hard work.

    Cons

    Company decided to lay off 80% of their sales force including some of their best reps and supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    I had a great relationship with all my supervisors and they were very happy to have me as part of their team.

    I worked at Ferrero full-time

    Pros

    They used to provide great benefits, but now they are just okay. Good Work/Life Balance.. Amazing products. Managers are usually understanding to family problems.

    Cons

    No career growth and opportunities. No development opportunities. Staff functions are not supported by management. They rather let you sink then get involved in the daily problems which can only be straightened out by management. The IT Department is a mess and upper management does not challenge them to improve.
    Salaries are below the market rate.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to support your current employees not only the ones you favor. Clean house at the management level, including HR. Listen to your staff and consider their opinions . Help them straighten out the problems so they can do a better job. Involve yourself in the daily fires so you have a clue about the challenges your employees are facing.

    I have been working at Ferrero full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has recently offered flex-time, giving the option to work from 8-4, 9-5, or 10-6. Great brands.

    Cons

    The company pays 25-30% below market value, they have promised employees raises and have not kept their word, they have promised temps full time jobs and not kept their word, management is completely disconnected from what employees do on a day-to-day basis, there are conflicting goals within the company, and limited resources, and employees are held accountable for it all.
