Does Olam offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

CPG actually doing measurable sustainability activities, knowing you're working for a company that strives towards ethical sourcing, engaged employees who enjoy food--can't go wrong with that, hybrid office culture (flexibility for FT employees), opportunities for travel, witnessed a healthy balance of employees utilizing their vacation time

Cons

Intern pay rate was flat despite advanced degree program and wasn't enough to offset living costs in Fresno (surprisingly expensive), sick days and holiday (July 4th) were unpaid for interns, hybrid office culture (con/bummer for intern when you're required to be in office--stunted networking opportunities), not a lot of pay transparency or visible pathway from intern to full-time employee

Advice to Management

Some structured internship projects, intentional community building, and maybe a summer mentor would benefit and provide interesting growth opportunities for the intern but also benefit the business unit with increased access to institutional knowledge and opportunities for new ideas to be presented.
