Employee Comments

    Current Employee in Northfield, Illinois

    Coming straight from school it's hard to really grasp what a "good" benefits package looks like. I am very satisfied with PTO (20 days, 5 rollover for first 5 years) and appreciate flexible working hours - which generally lead to working more than 40 hours/week but on my own terms.

    The best benefit at Kraft Foods is the work from home flexibility. In Sales, you have the opportunity to work from home a few days a week, and at the new Chicago downtown office on Michigan Avenue. There is no set time you must be in or out of the office, and managers are extremely accommodating about traffic. With that being said, you are expected to meet/exceed expectations and get all work done.

    Medical benefits is fine. Vacation PTO 20 days with 5 day carry over year to year.

    They no longer have Pension and continue to cut everything else. Employees need to contribute much more than in the past. Very limited 401K investment options. The benefits are average at best as the company continues to cut costs.

    Every year employee share of health benefit go up, network of providers is small and medical providers complain about how slow they are to pay and not provide. One of my kids needed to see a specialist and non were in network, $6k out of network deductible and $3k in-network we ended up with a HUGE bill The increase overall reduces annual merit salary increases.

    You receive Paid Time Off that you have to use for sickness, medical appointments, etc. If you or a family member gets sick it cuts into your vacation time. Wouldn't be an issue but even experienced people start with only 12-15 days.

    You now have to provide your own cell phone despite the fact that at HQ you won't even get a phone at your desk. They used to give employees $100 every few years to help pay for the cost of a phone but now they'll only pay part of your monthly phone bill. Wouldn't care about this but since you don't get phone at your desk it feels like they aren't providing key equipment needed to do your job.

    Wish there was a more wholistic view of benefits provided that didn't just go to the bottom line and considered the impact to the employee and how it
