      I have been working at Ferrero full-time

      Pros

      The brands are brilliant to work with

      Cons

      International bureaucracy - most decisions are made from global or regional head office Culture of the place has really gone down. People aren't motivated and senior managers are vocal about how terrible the place has become. Flexible arrangements - like working from home are frowned upon. Not a progressive work culture.

      Advice to Management

      Engagement survey dip stick wouldn't look good for Ferrero at the moment.

      Pros

      The company is financially very solid.

      Cons

      Little respect for employees: you are just a figure. They know people is queueing to work in Ferrero so current employees get very little consideration. Passion and effort are given for granted.

      Advice to Management

      Employees should be treated at least with the same attention Ferrero has to customers.
