    I have been working at Danone North America full-time

    Pros

    -A lot of responsibility early on -Learn significant amount quickly -Collegial environment in marketing

    Cons

    -Sink or swim mentality -Very little coaching -Significant pressure to perform -Very little regard for work life balance -A lot of turnover due to above - junior people are in and out quickly

    Advice to Management

    Review pace of work of junior people to reduce turnover. Most people think of Dannon as a place to learn for a year or two and get out.
