    I have been working at Ferrero

    Pros

    Remuneration is good for the work performed. Company shutdowns are run in July and at christmas, which are ideal times for holidays.

    Cons

    Management displays a lack of clarity and visible inter-management tensions. Internal promotion seems to be based on social factors rather than ability/qualifications. Floor employees are kept in the dark on future changes/issues until the minimum notice is left.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to increase their qualifications and upskill regularly. They should seek advice from successful management teams in nearby companies such as Apple. This would boost their poor reputation among HR professionals particularly.

    I have been working at Ferrero full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Earn money before but I learned a lot of things not to do. Very challenging and satisfying experience in agriculture (hazelnut) and sosteinibility.

    Cons

    Manage communication where the upper management believes communication is superficial material per definition.

    Advice to Management

    In every cellular of business is hidden very strategic communication material. Be close to your communication experts, share your business strategy and information with them. They makes very comfortable your road for run and they will save your business from risks.

    I have been working at Ferrero

    Pros

    - cheap canteen - remote working 4x month - convenient conciergerie (dry cleaners, post) - passion for quality

    Cons

    - Far from being an international or diverse company!!! 70% of the population are Italian men +40 years old. - Meetings are held in Italian, official communications are sent out in Italian. no one cares that you don’t understand anything. Learn Italian or die. - Extremely hierarchical. You end up working to please their egos. So much arrogance, prepotente & political issues. - Lack of transparency on salaries,... no career path. - People love to stay long hours in the office just to show they are there. - Incompetent HR. You have to send them 5 mails before they reply. Unfriendly. - Aberration to change. With the excuse of holding onto tradition, they end up losing opportunities and falling behind in innovations.

    Advice to Management

    The “old-Italian-school” will have to eventually (rather soon) retire. Think of the people that will remain. You need to truly embrace diversity and it has to be reflected in the daily life, not just your PR.
