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

    Pros

    At the most senior levels, the company has a strong commitment to purpose and the global environment. Largest B Corp in the world. But that vision doesn’t seem to trickle down very far into the company’s day to day Operations.

    Cons

    Despite having 2,400 resources in the global IS/IT organization, the company’s systems are easily 20 to 30 years behind anything that’s close to best practices and or industry norms. Not the place for doing anything interesting with technology. Regional teams forced to use software developed specifically for the French / Paris. White list / Black list for all software categories. White list vendors are no where close to industry leaders or best of breed providers.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Danone North America full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Mission, vision and the fact that they are walking the talk Lots of opportunities in different jobs, or even internationally CEO's strength and engagement Fantastic benefits (Flexible time off, Maternity leave - 6 month!, 401k...) I will add that during COVID the management was outstanding in hearing our needs, letting us stay wherever we were for the length we chose, and if we needed to go back to the office, it was opened to anyone that wished. that flexibility was very helpful!

    Cons

    Tend to be a bit disorganized at time and need a few heads to do one job Little bit too much politics that makes you work 3 time as hard to deliver the same thing.

    Pros

    Good salary, free yogurt, generous PTO

    Too many cliques in every team. We had a manager that completely dismantled our successful team and then left the company. We found out later he never managed a team in his career.. Shocker!
