I have been working at Danone full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great people, great benefits. Free yoghurt & water at work. You get to own your projects and minimum interference is there from your seniors (providing you are doing a good job). Senior management is amazing, they take care of employees, held a lot of events. Conferences all over the world.

Cons

The cash package is not be in line with other companies of similar size. Hard to progress further (in IT atleast) as people tend to stick to their positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Can't say much really, they are awesome! Better than the CEOs of other companies who are solely interested in making bucks for themselves. Say Hi5 to the executives of Danone who are genuinly interested in the people who work for them.

    I have been working at Danone full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Its very good company to start a carrier with international business management approaches. Lots of free trainings. Free yoghurt everyday:) All managers have corporate cars. Modern office. Team buildings etc..

    Cons

    Very slow promotion. Mostly impossible to become a director (departments head) as usually they receive new ones from France (80%) or other countries. PDR (personal development review) is a mean of punishment and position change or even company's leave instead of real development! Corporate culture CODEF (commitment-open-doer-empower-fun) is simulation for top-management directors and very cynical attitude. Very strange salary policy, ex. my predecessor received 2 times higher salary and worked 2 time less efficiency. So if you are really doer you will receive less than undoer:))) I had around 4 persons upper management and 1 direct subordinates and dozen of cross-functionals and in the same time was responsible for everything even for a partners part of job)))

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn CODEF (commitment-open-doer-empower-fun) instead of only fun into real openness and commitment (and other letters) from directors and management. More sincerity in attitude and higher payment for real doers.
