The working conditions for this company is not good for a woman cause you carry heavy stuff and also you will go inside the refrigerator to take out stock so in winter it was worse.

This is a fast paced stressful competitive environment. Great vibrant people working there. Committed and loyal people. Job advancement is done poorly and unfairly at times. Incentives when presented are also done unfairly at times. It is however a great company to work for.

Not ideal for an out spoken person. Won’t recommend it if you want to grow with the business. Senior managers from France don’t recognize or respect South African talent.

no meetings
it is of very important to manage time correctly

relaxed environment none is putting employees under pressure but the job itself.

hardest part of the job is when one is under pressure because it is an 8 hours process job.

Danone has a very structured approach which brings about calmness and direction. Key deliverables are easily met with support from employees at all levels in the business. Recognition is given for hard work and career mapping guidance is valued. I enjoyed the Committed, Empowered, Doer and Open Values.

It is one of the best companies to work for.
The staff is frieny and it feels like you are at home.

Work does not feel like work and a day without a smile on your face, is a waste.
