    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The product can be good although they give stale product to employees. I can’t think of anything else that’s good.

    Cons

    Canadian Leadership team’s main focus is looking out for themselves. If you work here long enough, your parting gift is a hand shake and a knife in the back. Terrible If you don’t have at least two directors on your side at all times, you are cooked. Very very very political. Nothing else really happens besides setting the pecking order.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t pretend to develop people. Don’t pretend to manage through favouritism. Don’t forget that your ‘rank and yank’ policies impact families. Treat you employees better or quit.

    I worked at The Hershey Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A few perks like flex work environment, free chocolate and free parking. Location is good for travel. Good competition if you take on more roles.

    Cons

    It's one thing to talk the talk but management definitely can't walk the walk. All promises and positivity, then let long time employees and good people go who challenge the status quo. US has no idea what's going on.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting the good ones go and giving people more than one job with no comp.
