    Pros

    Great culture, great people, lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the business, a lot of job opportunities require relocation. The company does a good job of accommodating where they can though.

    Current Employee - Customer Sales Executive in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at The Hershey Company

    Pros

    There are a lot of promotional opportunities and a very wide variety of roles available. They seem to truely hire good, genuine people. The 401k match is competitive. Upper level directors and team leads are approachable and seem willing to make time.

    Cons

    There are huge discrepancies among salaries for the same job title. This is despite equal experience, job expectations and amount of business responsibility. Additionally they do not take into consideration cost of living or geography. Finally salary is set at time of hire, so your customer list could double but there will be no change in salary or bonus considered.

    Advice to Management

    Drastic changes to roles should be reviewed for salary change when they happen.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at The Hershey Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Selling chocolate is one of the most fun things to sell ever! The corporate culture of corporate social responsibility and sustainability is top shelf. The information available for use with customers is best in class.

    Cons

    Climate has changed in the last few years to one of overwork and fear of losing your job. Struggles in China have caused actions in the US that I believe are not positive and very short-sighted.
