    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Danone North America full-time

    Pros

    -Good pay, especially for lax education/experience requirements -Good benefits, generous maternity leave

    Cons

    -Adversarial department managers looking to throw anybody and everybody under the bus. Nearly constant pushing of work into other departments. -Nearly complete lack of respect for the lab in terms of quality control. Managers/Supervisors consistently override the company/lab's quality parameters with "concessions" or force the lab to perform additional testing with little regard for lab workload or understanding of standard laboratory procedures. -Lack of communication or, in some observed cases, basic civility between departments that results in denigration of employees, with no accountability to speak of for said degradation.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    6 months paid maternity leave, 3 months paternity. $300 gym re-imbursement program (works for yoga, spin, rock climbing, etc. as well.) Health insurance is the best I've experienced. They are always doing continuous improvement programs with their plants and with their employees. If you want the training and more experience, you will get it. There's plenty of room for career growth if you are open to moving to different plants.

    Cons

    Union gets paid more than salary. They stretch out your skills to avoid paying for another position, and they are reluctant to give you fair pay. They are still better paying than the average company though. Hard hours but you get Friday's off.
