    I have been working at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    GPN is a super fast paced business full of opportunity to learn and grow. It's constantly changing due to the acquisition of new business and no two days are ever the same. The career opportunities, international exposure and opportunities to travel are endless. Working with lots of like minded individuals is encouraging and allows teams to achieve goals and results efficiently and effectively.

    Cons

    Benefits package a little behind competitors

    I worked at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Products are great. No doubt there. I still use some of them. Some great people who are still there and who work hard but are stuck.

    Cons

    Don't believe the latest reviews you're seeing. Glanbia is NOTORIOUS for asking employees to leave positive reviews for them and their products, even when no one has tried them. I believe that some of these 4 and 5 stars are just that...Trying to raise their rating. Bottom line, people are quitting in large numbers, and there are people who have been there more than 5 years. That's a bad sign. Culture is terrible and they act like they care but they do not.

    I worked at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time

    Pros

    Good brands unfortunately poorly managed

    Cons

    No clear strategy and appalling company culture which comes directly from the senior execs . Short term outlook leading to brand value being eroded

    I worked at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time

    Pros

    Very fast paced environment so there was always something going on and something to do. Manager was extremely supportive of me and my career goals. I would've stayed at GPN but felt my career growth was limited so I left.

    Cons

    Work/life balance was sometimes a struggle

    I worked at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great teamwork! Everyone really works hard together to achieve the goal of putting high quality products out in the market - Flexible work-life balance - Very clear definition of goals and professional development - Challenging work, but supportive team and bosses to help you achieve your goals - Fun atmosphere! Many office and company events, opportunities to volunteer, office gym, etc. - Global company that is always growing and acquiring more brands, so the opportunities for advancement are always there and developing.

    Cons

    - Cons are really dependent on which department you work for. I really have nothing but positive things to say about this company. If you hope to come in and coast with minimal effort, this isn't the place to do it. The company requires talented go-getters to have the initiative and drive to succeed.

    Pros

    People here can be great--- it's what you make of it

    Cons

    Management is incentivized by performance, not values, so the values fall by the wayside, even though there is an attempt to incentivize values at the Operator level. Not bad overall, just needs a realignment with a leader that has an awareness of the ground level concerns at the center of it all. The cons bring the overall rating down from a 4-star to 3.5, but I didn't have that option, and the inability to correct quickly enough make it a solid 3. There is tons of potential, just might take the next go-around to kick it up a notch.
