      Pros

      Great company to work. If you are looking for flexibility and an easy going work culture, Hershey is the place.

      Cons

      Presents as a global company but is mostly US centric. Everything from product launches to production and supply is largely dependent on how things ebb and flow in the US business ( commercial and manufacturing) Makes it difficult to be in control of your local business results especially where product availability is concerned with so much US dependency.

      Pros

      It was a fantastic work opportunity, with great support from management and colleagues, would highly recommend working here. I gained lots of valuable experienced and learned a lot.

      Cons

      Overall the experience was very positive with few if any cons. The online work environment made it challenging to connect with colleagues in a social setting but it was temporary, and not a huge deal.
