    I worked at Danone full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Values initiative and achievements at a personal level, good recognition via bonus and senior management respect, politics relatively easy to navigate, general good organizational culture

    Cons

    Promotions are slow, HR behaviour appalling. Barcelona office is largely a team of old school catalan dinossaurs (hardly anyone speaks english well, apart from new people, mostly ex-pats). once these dinos retire the company might have a chance to be more competitive, open, innovative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the jurassic team in Spain (specially HR) and value new talent, promote quick.

    I worked at Danone full-time

    Pros

    Great working conditions, professionalism, good payment.

    Cons

    However, due to specification of the product line of the company working mode is always in an extreme rush, incredibly short deadlines, high stress level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more cooperation between offices internationally. Provide more support to departments with big projects, budget planning needs improvements as well.
