    I have been working at Danone North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible time off, very good work-life balance, opportunities for growth if willing to relocate, competitive pay

    Cons

    Lack of understanding between internal teams, sometimes this gets you super demotivated. Each team has its own interests and it's more of an internal battle versus go sell to your customers

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Generous PTO, pay decent, good benefits. The culture used to be good but then Whitewave came along, now people are dropping left and right.

    Cons

    Morale, politics, new org chart is too top heavy. It's pretty embarrassing when accounts even notice the heavy turnover. They still use Lotus Notes!

    "Great PTO & Terrible Culture"

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Danone North America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    PTO is based on years in the industry - not years with the company. Tends to recruit talent to do the job

    Cons

    Culture is vindictive, lacks transparency, and the "must win" objectives shift and are often contradictory from one quarter to the next. 401K options have annually performed below industry average. High turnover. Short sighted - sales side is bonused quarterly and short term decisions are frequently made at the expense of long term sustainability. Uncertainty regarding layoffs with White Wave acquisition currently resulting in lower productivity and morale among employees across the country.

    I have been working at Danone North America

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Unreal PTO, Great Product

    Cons

    Breeds a very negative culture that has gotten worse over the last few years. The powers at be continuously put emotionally intelligent lacking people as managers(many are in with the "in crowd"). Very short sighted when it comes to what a successful employee is. Being rude and aggressive is tolerated where a team player type is looked at as a weak link and not a leader. This also breeds extreme competitiveness and back stabbing as well for those that care about getting promoted. Do not expect to hear a congratulations or celebratory of wins. Expect to be asked what more can you do? Constant emails/phone calls after work hours and on weekends is the norm.

    I worked at Danone North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent salary, fast paced Yogurt Category

    Cons

    Watch out if you're over 50 at this company. You get to old and make too much money, you're replaced by a Millennial. Very little respect from the retailer trade. Foreign leadership have little clue of American business

    I worked at Danone North America full-time

    Pros

    -Great benefits and good salary

    Cons

    -Some managers are only looking out for themselves, very poor coaching and not a sense of a team - Poor communication at all levels; not recognition for any work done or in what direction to go - People that work hard and aren't highly "political" are often ignored or let go - Upper management does a poor job giving direction; there is never a clear idea on what the goal is - They preach CODE but very few people follow it - Very few people can be trusted or feel like a teammate
