    I have been working at Danone North America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very helpful and friendly people. Everyone is willing to help you out if you ask for their input. Very loose work environment, meaning that they give you time on your own to work on projects (which I loved). Awesome management and leadership team. Great potential for growth since it is a world wide company. Amazing benefits and everyone has a stellar work life balance. This company does a lot for the community as well. We had three volunteer opportunities while I was there and they constantly look for ways to give back.

    Cons

    If you aren't someone that can stay on top of deadlines and be self motivated to get things done without someone checking up on you, this may be a challenging work environment.

    Unlimited paid time off. Very flexible work/personal life balance. Lots of opportunities for growth within and outside of the departments. Great benefits

    Pros

    If you are in with the french team and keep their favor, you may do well.

    Cons

    It is sad to see what Danone has become. Others have mentioned the Whitewave integration, but on the Evian side, things got just as bad. The bottom line is, the company has no clear direction and leadership completely undervalues the US market. There is an illusion that because Evian is successful in Europe and elsewhere abroad, it's a given that it should be in the US...not true. They continue to bring new senior level people in from France to work on the US business. They simply don't understand the market, have unrealistic expectations and only favor other french. It's a shameful culture and such a wasted opportunity on what could have been a strong US business.

    Pros

    401k match, free products in the office

    Cons

    Every deadline is due the same day it’s given, results are never sufficient, the more condescending you are the higher up you’ll go. A place where arguing and fighting is encouraged to see what you are made up. Politics are the key to success here. You need to be willing to work 60 hours and chum it up with the directors if you want any promotion.
