    Pros

    driven performance led culture. huge level of scope for progression both cross functionally and within function locally and internationally. high emphasis on leadership

    Cons

    By virtue of being a large organisation, decision making can often involve unnecessary meetings and stakeholder consultation, which in turn slows down decision making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to drive performance ethically. maintain the spirit and belief behind the brands; it is a major driver of people motivation and pride

    Pros

    reputation, scale, development all give cadbury an edge in talent recruitment. global role moves possible but getting harder due to emerging markets.

    Cons

    corporate identity preservation means decision making and reaction to change are slow and difficult to sustain. recent takeover by kraft creates uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure you identify key talent and experience during stabalisation to deliver results. Our futures depend on this as we are no longer the big fish.

    Pros

    nice people to work with. Work and life balance has been respected. People usually will stay there for many years without moving around.

    Cons

    do not encourage to take risks. People who is willing to take risks will find very difficult in the environment. Lack of motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leaders in this organization should move people around instead of letting them stay in one position too long. Don't do too much restructuring

    Management should focus on selecting a single management model and then sticking with it. There are tow many poorly communicated models from the corporate group that are not implemented by the local businesses.
