    Pros

    Good Colleagues Got to work from home during pandemic

    Cons

    GPN used to be a great place to work, fortunately alot of good management left and we are stuck with leadership that doesn't listen to its employees concerns. They take company surveys and then do not follow up with anything but more surveys until they see the result they want. You do get to work from home but the work piles up and there is no boundaries, people calling at 7pm about work related issues. No career development or advancement

    Former Employee - Marketing in Downers Grove, IL

    I worked at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time

    Pros

    Some good people, some good leaders, and some good brands. Office is nice and has gym.

    Cons

    Some really bad leaders too. Really depends on your specific area so try to do your homework and know what you're getting into. Not always a lot of options to grow. Can get pretty stagnant.

  7. "Poorly run and no sense of focus. Very corporate and limited growth."

    I worked at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only thing is salary but it’s easy to see they can pay due to high turnover.

    Cons

    Meritocracy, super corporate, old boy network and limited creative thought. They are not growing organically and only by acquisition.
