    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.
