    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.

    Pros

    The company is financially very solid.

    Cons

    Little respect for employees: you are just a figure. They know people is queueing to work in Ferrero so current employees get very little consideration. Passion and effort are given for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be treated at least with the same attention Ferrero has to customers.

    Pros

    lot of career choices ; free chocolate ; multi-cultural environment ; possibility to travel

    Cons

    Managers get all the praise & bonuses while employees aren't recognized. Low-balling on salary review ; salary for luxembourg standards low ; no clear career paths ; loud work environment ; managers chosen not but management skills but more by social skills ; caste system

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to have managers pass a management training ; check upon employees once in a while an do listen do them ; try sometimes to meet employees now and then without passing trough the manager as usually they try to make themselves look good. You're on the right path with mobility in the working hours etc but need to adjust working place to the 21 century fast as the world is moving fast to the detriment of work-life...
