    I worked at Ferrero full-time

    Pros

    great work place with great products great experience always busy and challenging flexible and great management good opportunity for many positions

    Cons

    It is fairly difficult to move up to any management position. The company headquarters is located in a different country which may cause issues with communication with directors. However, great work environment and great people.

    Advice to Management

    Have more programs for all positions in order for employees to grow with the company. Hire more frequently to have the manpower for each department to introduce a smoother operation. Instead of using a hiring agency, employee more HR staff.
