    Pros

    Brands, benefits, but the heavy workload, micromanagement, and office politics void out the pros.

    Cons

    Micromanage at its worst from VPs on down. Company is completely disorganized, but leadership excuses it with “we have to move fast”. Direction coming from all over and you are expected to follow in line regardless of where the direction is coming from. If you question anything you are asked to do, you are retaliated against. Office politics are the worst I have ever seen. Everyone is trying to get promoted so the brown...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Danone North America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing. pay is low, management micromanages, there's a diversity push for the staff to accept liberal and progressive thoughts.Some people don't like this.

    Cons

    Micromanagement at its worst. They reprimand you for your bathroom breaks even if you have diarrhea. They give you hell over coffee, the stuff you take from the pantry, and the people seem to only want to work from 9-5 and check out mentally on Fridays.
