    I have been working at WhiteWave full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work schedule is great as well as the pay for the area it's in and only 5 mins. away from my home

    Cons

    Co-workers always fighting among one another wouldn't be so bad if they'd mind their own business and just do what your paid to do.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor the trouble makers and take action with them so everything would run smoothly without the issues happening among employees.

    I have been working at WhiteWave full-time

    Pros

    They pay very well (legacy whitewave)

    Cons

    Whitewave was recently acquired by Dannon. The growth momentum at Whitewave was immediately disrupted. The new company called DanoneWave seems to be directionless as the culture disintegrates.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to do a much better job at providing guidance and information. The tone is currently being set at the bottom causing disorganization and chaos.

    Good ole boy system exists for promotions. Certain people have way too much power that they shouldn't have.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the talent you have and give them the chance. You thinking someone can't do it doesn't make it true.

    Pros

    Strong industry-leading brands.
    Highly sustainable and ethical business practices.
    Very open transparent work culture.
    Highly impactful and empowering roles.
    Entrepreneurial and nimble in making decisions.
    Improved internal promotion opportunities in recent years.
    Makes a conscious effort to give back to the community.

    Cons

    At times too strong a focus on launching new products in the market.
    Rapid growth through acquisition in recent years means long hours for employees to integrate brands/companies.
    Merger with Dannon in 2017 - losing the entrepreneurial small company feel.

    Advice to Management

    The success of WhiteWave is strongly tired to its small company Colorado feel. Keep the culture alive post Merger to ensure continued success of the company's core brands.
