Pros

Great exposure to top level CPG firm, especially right out of college. Gives you a good foundation of excel and how to analysis data. Also, helps you develop client facing skills and how to maintain expectations. Lucked out with a really good leader and the opportunity to work in our international group, meaning colleagures across the world.

Cons

Not much room for creativity and innovation, just execute. Compensate on tenure over talent. Very little exposure to top level management. Lately, I hear they are putting restrictions on travel which hinders relationships with clients.

Advice to Management

Value the MBA

    Pros

    Great teamwork, good benefits, lovely people to work with
    Good training provided

    Cons

    after 18 years of loyal service and giving my all i was made redundant and my job outsourced to India.
    Used to be a great company but all they care about is cutting costs and quality

    hope it comes back to bite you

    Advice to Management

    stop the outsourcing the quality is going down hill, it is costing more outting right the errors being made.

    I know a lot of unhappy people still working there and waiting for your next cost cutting outsurce
