    I have been working at Hain Celestial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hain is an organization that values creativity and innovation, and its employees have an opportunity to make a lasting impact. The office environment nurtures ingenuity with open work spaces and collaborative meeting opportunities. Culture feels entrepreneurial in that employees are responsible for understanding and contributing to all aspects of growing the company’s brands. Employees are provided with the tools and structure to succeed, but are expected to collaborate cross functions and not let excuses / hurdles get in the way of contributing to the organization’s success. Hard-working, effective and innovative employees are rewarded with upward mobility.

    Cons

    If candidates are looking for ultra-structured and siloed job functions, Hain may not be the right fit. As mentioned, employees must appreciate and be able to thrive in a flexible, forward thinking, fast paced setting.

    Advice to Management

    I'm proud that management has kept its entrepreneurial spirit amongst tremendous market growth and success. CEO takes interest in product development and can often be spotted tasting new innovation ideas around the office.
