    I have been working at Danone North America

    Pros

    There are some good, sharp people in Danone

    Cons

    Poor behavior is pretty prevalent, lack of good people managers, businesses lack strategic vision - largely tactical goals.

    I have been working at Danone North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free yogurt, free water and unreal PTO if you can take it.

    Cons

    Don't let the PTO fool you, Dannon is well known for being one of the worst work/life balance companies in CPG. Leadership is obsessed with the short term, which means you will be working long hours and weekends, and wasting a lot of energy on projects that get started but never finished. Plus we like to be a "lean" organization, which is code for being understaffed. This all breeds a very negative culture. Getting through each day feels like trying to make it through a minefield. Unless you are part of the "in crowd" your own Director will backstab you and try to take credit for your work to get ahead. You will come home exhausted and dread getting up and doing it all over again. HR will tell you that this place is "not for everyone" because of our speed and agility. They will say you need to be a "Doer" or "Empowered" to distract from the true organizational problems. But HR themselves knows how hard it is to replace all the people leaving because our reputation in market is so bad. They have to depend on a pipeline of unsuspecting interns to recruit talent instead. Finally, don't expect to advance your career here if you are a woman. The number of women leading the company is embarrassing. When leadership changes occur, like the changes that are about to be announced, you will not see a single woman even being considered.
