    I worked at WhiteWave full-time (More than 10 years)

    The company as a whole was very attentive to work life balance.

    The Manager I worked for was not the best.

    I have been working at WhiteWave (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, community involvement, strong values, and historical pattern of strong growth and bonus payout. Also, strong promotion of diversity.

    Cons

    Difficult for newcomers to work their way up. Strong propensity for legacy employees that have been there from the start. Certain business segments are more organized and run better than others. Every department/business segment is not equal.

    Advice to Management

    Greater focus needs to be made on integration work as the company grows through acquisition. Many of the new businesses feel left on an island. More focus needs to be made on the cultural integration of the company as a whole.

    Focused on the environment and reducing their foot print in the environment.

    Becoming a publicly traded company, changed the way they view employees and their worth

    Advice to Management

    Need better management at the lower levels to evaluate employees to ensure they are truly adding value to the company.

    I have been working at WhiteWave full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary, company values and location.

    Cons

    SC team management mean spirited, petty and always jockeying for position. Moral plummeted with acquisition news.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long look at your Director level members on the SC team. That's the reason moral is so poor.
