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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Good immediate management

    Cons

    First off this review is almost irrelevant as the speciality sales division of GPN is going to be obsolete very soon. They already let go about 30% of the outside sales team and if the people working in that division think they are safe they are being foolish. - When I left Glanbia and my new employer called for verification that I was in sales Glanbia...

    Advice to Management

    Seriously take a look at the people running the speciality division and ask yourself what success have they had lately. They are running that division into the ground and are wasting tons of money while hiring their friends and loved one from coke for jobs that could be filled internally first.

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

    Pros

    I have been here at Glanbia Performance Nutrition for about 2 years. Great opportunities for people that have the entrepreneurial mindset. This isn’t your typical 9-5 job you get back what you put out, have seen people get promoted within a year two, people with drive and passion really make this place fun! Working with different regions of GPN you really feel you’re part of something big. Everyone is always willing...

    Cons

    Would love to have more opportunities to work cross functionally or have a rotation program.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace the open door policy. Engage more with within other departments.

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

    Pros

    Glanbia is the industry leader with new products coming out on what feels like a daily basis!

    Cons

    In a changing market a company changing it's focus makes sense however, putting one team to the curb to be forgotten does not help.

    Advice to Management

    The company has a clear goal in mind however the different teams continue to step on each other and over lap. Instead of pushing people out use the talent from within to create new positions to help achieve the one goal.

    I have been working at Glanbia Performance Nutrition full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The balance between work & life is perfect. Glanbia understands that hard workers need to shut down and recharge to be productive. They offer great opporutnit8ies to interact with other colleagues and are very generous with days off or hours off prior to a major holiday . More companies should take notes from their culture pertaining to time off. They try and put a more European mentality to time off and leisure.

    Cons

    Everything here is a work in progress. Things change constantly , month to month , day to day , quarter to quarter. Glanbia is fairly new and with the amount of acquisitions they have made in the Sports Nutrition Space they are still trying to find their identity and what works to maximize their dollar and maximize the best they can get from each of their employees. Because of...

    Advice to Management

    Listen more , speak less. Find out what is really going on in your departments. VP, Presidents, CEO, CFO, Directors , talk to your employees and ask the questions . You are only going to be told what the manager wants to tell you , its the employees that can really tell you what is and is not going on . * Employees should be in charge of their own faith and their own career patch , the opinion of management to allow...

    Pros

    +#1 brands & company globally in the sports nutrition category; it's fun to play for the winning team. +Deep partnerships with the top customers in the space, a vertically integrated business on raw materials and manufacturing, and quality systems based on a philosophy of no compromise means relatively more stability and growth in what historically has been a volatile, faddish industry that has been plagued by less...

    Cons

    -Rapid and dramatic change is ever-present in the company & in the industry. The pace of change cannot be understated and it is only exacerbated by growth. It is not for the faint of heart and requires an ability to roll with the punches in response to frequent changes on various levels of the working environment: company, organizational structure, consumer trends, customer shifts, new products, culture, tools, processes,...

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

    Pros

    Glanbia is a great company for individuals looking to get experience in the Sports Nutrition Industry. Departments like Quality, R&D, Sales and Marketing keep the company thriving.

    Cons

    Over the past 5 years upper management have been cut throat in departments such as Supply chain and Procurement. As someone pointed out, they want to operate like they are a world class organization. But they allowed all of the good staff get away. Particularly in Supply chain and Procurement. They should really investigate the integrity of the leadership that has been in key positions in the last 5 years. They don't...

    Advice to Management

    Find out who the bad ones are and seek help replacing them. You let a lot of good people go because you didn't really look at how the managers treat people that report to them.

    I would highly recommend the company to friends (and have done so already) for the following reasons: Co-workers- very supportive management who you growth initiatives to improve you skill set and just the right amount of direction to guide you. Teammates are very approachable and have a team first mentality. Mission and Values- With a mission of "Inspire people everywhere to achieve their performance goals",...

    Cons

    My only non 5 star rating of the 5 categories below is Compensation & Benefits. The individual pay, PTO/Vacation time, laptop, iPhone, medical benefits, 401K/company matches, annual bonus, product discounts are all FANTASTIC. The only improvements in the benefits plan would be around evaluation of company cars as benefit option and offering stock options. Great company to be a part of overall!

    Advice to Management

    Keep progressing on enhancing the company culture. The establishment of Leadership Forums and continued use of employee surveys are keys to success.

    Pros

    The work is easy. 4 weeks total pto from your first day. Climate controled facility. Management does care what the employees do. Product is cheap for employees to purchase.

    Cons

    Everything thing that is a pro is also a con at Glanbia Performance Nutrition. Employees do what ever they want because there is no supervision. You are capped at the vacation they give you from day 1. They do not pay out for vacation not used and if you are no longer employed there they take whatever vacation time not earned from your last check. Work is so easy people are lazy....

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with whats going on with the employees. Treat eveyone fair. Do not believe what the first person say. Hold your supervisors accountable for what they do or dont do.

    Pros

    The brands, BSN, Optimum Nutrition, Isopure and ABB, are incredible brands and it is great to represent brands that I believe in.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, this company has higher ups who do not value the opinions of those who are working with customers and retailers day in and day out. The executives come from outside the industry and implement their ideas with haste instead of taking the time to listen to those who have worked in the industry for years and then blame us when their ideas don't work.

    Glanbia Performance Nutrition is an amazing place to work. This company cares about their employees and shows it in many ways.
