    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,...

    Advice to Management

    ~ Stay connected to the industry and keep us from becoming too insular. ~ Encourage more risk taking. ~ Recognize good work and "good failure" publicly and often. ~ Be seen and heard more with each other. We want to see that our leadership team is really a team. ~ If you align to a decision, don't undermine it after the decision-making meeting. ~ Clarify who makes what decisions. If you empower an employee...

    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.

    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.

    GPN is a great place to work. Employees are treated with respect, sky's the limit for a career in sports nutrition. GPN invest in their employees by hosting sports nutrition school and sales training. Excellent 401k match, benefits and time off. Management doesn't bother you as long as your doing what is asked of you. Highly talented individuals work here if your open minded you can learn something new every day. Fun...
