    Pros

    Great culture. Both coworkers and management were motivated, positive people. Organized goals to help you focus and achieve.

    Cons

    Restructure of the company eliminated the entire division, so you had to interview/potentially move to stay with the company. They did, however, give severance if you did not pursue another role within the company.

    Pros

    They care about you as a person more than an employee, your opinion is valued and feedback is something they take seriously as they are an ever evolving company that relies on its most important resource, it’s people. They do a great job of training you to ensure that you have all you need to be successful. And the entire company feels like a team, “we’re all in this together” type of attitude. If you are able to land a job at The Hershey Company, do not take it lightly, it’s an incredible life changing experience.

    Cons

    There are no cons, maybe larger avenues/more paths to take to broaden your career at The Hershey Company which could increase retention
