    Pros

    Dynamic company with professionals who are young but with a solid experience. Great company if you want to developp you career in FMCG as it is a top player in the industry. Moreover I am working in a global department and the environment is very international

    Cons

    Internships sometimes are too short (6 months) and it is not easy to get familiar with all the tools and information about the industry. They should probably have the interns for more time and invest a little bit more of time with them.

    Advice to Management

    Overall they are good management with experience
