    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits - 10% annual performance bonus, lots of opportunity within the organization, 6 weeks paid paternity leave, flexible schedule, remote working, etc.

    Cons

    90% of the opportunities are in central PA. It’s a nice place to live, but isn’t for everyone, especially young, single professionals.

    I worked at The Hershey Company for more than a year

    Pros

    -Fast promotion opportunity if you're able to show your worth. -Transparent access to company executives -Great benefits -Company that is dedicated to building leaders

    Cons

    -The RSR position is hard to quantify how successful you are doing, and you may not feel compensated for your efforts compared to other team members that are not putting in the same effort. -If you're a perfect employee and continually get promoted you will have to move to a different location in the company every 2-4 years. Some people really enjoy this, but personally for me it didn't fit what I wanted long term.
