  2. "Well Compensated"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Still has core Hershey/family feel and values Strong Compensation

    Cons

    Can be difficult to come from the outside. Long term employees are listened to more and "taken care of" versus external hires. Although, external hires are well compensated, you can end up feeling like you hit walls where people don't want to change and can be the first "hit" when things like restructuring happens.

    Advice to Management

    In a bit of flux right now. Needs to improve in terms of a strong long term and sustainable strategy

    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great performing company with a strong history of giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Certain senior leadership is incompetent and people are judged based on political maneuvering rather than ability, results, and strong management skills. Some of the most competent people have been restructured out of the company leading to an aggressive environment with no job security. This then leads to a lack of teamwork and people step on others in an attempt to protect their own jobs. Senior leadership rewards...

    Advice to Management

    Work in eliminating the incompetency in the senior leadership ranks and work on fixing the corporate culture.

    Pros

    The people are very collaborative and not cut-throat competitive as I have heard of other CPGs. The opportunity for rotation and promotion is abundant.

    Cons

    If you are single you may struggle to find a life outside of work as the city and company environment caters to families.
