    Pros

    Some iconic brands, but in today’s world that is not enough!

    Cons

    Highly unorganized company with fire drills daily! People managers strongly believe in micromanagement, and DO NOT push back or they will retaliate against you, treat you unfairly holding you up to different standards than everyone else and turn everything you say and do against you. Leaders also tend to hire mainly young people with very little experience since young people do not tend to voice opinions outside of what directors, VPs, etc. say to do. Age discrimination, retaliation, harassment, and favoritism all present at Danone. With all the amazing companies out there, don’t waste your time here.

    I worked at Danone North America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing. pay is low, management micromanages, there's a diversity push for the staff to accept liberal and progressive thoughts.Some people don't like this.

    Cons

    Micromanagement at its worst. They reprimand you for your bathroom breaks even if you have diarrhea. They give you hell over coffee, the stuff you take from the pantry, and the people seem to only want to work from 9-5 and check out mentally on Fridays.
