    I have been working at Danone full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Genuine interest in its people
    - Commitment to healthier consumer solutions
    - Tend to see the slightly longer term horizon
    - Can do culture for a largish company (ie fail or succeed fast)
    - Some genuinely visionary senior management
    - Employees get discounts on brands!

    Cons

    - Still very franco-centric
    - Silly seniority rules based on turn over of area of responsibility - makes it hard to get good people for new ventures or start up phase businesses
    - HR Banding system too limiting
    - Too Euro-centric still
    - Does not have real plan for next generation of healthy but enjoyable products
    - Does not really know what to do with its Nutricia business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more vertically in its product development (from getting well to staying well) - inject some genuine cross cultural leadership at the more senior levels. More agile HR policies.
