    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lactalis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A great group of guys out on the production floor, hard workers.

    Cons

    The communication skills of the upper management from what was going on in the offices to the production floor was almost non existent. Many times one shift would need to work longer while the other didn't need to come in, and no notice was given to either shift. The work schedule was never set the same, so having a life outside of work was hard to do. Coming in to work only to find out that the shift that day wont start...

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications. Set up an email system or some forms of communication for those who do not work the day that a shift leader may share any information that may effect the time or schedule of a shift.

    - working atmosphere - respected FMCG company - number of holidays/year

    Cons

    - bad salary and bonus - no career opportunities - no clear task definition. Hence projects are messy - supposed to be international but works like a French SME - French speaking company - management in their ivory tower and do not respect employees nor customers leading to huge turnover (15% in 2017) - ways to improve disregarded by management

    Advice to Management

    Still of lot of improvement
