    Pros

    hard to find any

    Cons

    zero quality leadership, sales is to blame for everything, technology is cheapest in market with issues galore, not enough resources to meet expectations, can't provide satisfactory product supplyto meet demand, minimal career advancement unless a minority or Management Development Associate. Engage in unethical and illegal quarter close activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field and actually act on it. This isn't 1993 anymore. We can't ship(load) customers just because we have a number to hit. Bonus system is a joke.

    Pros

    Pay is average, 40 hour work week, company car provided. If you are young and naive this is the place for you

    Cons

    Where do I start. Hit numbers at all costs! The customer comes last with mondelez. Sales reps are threatened with their jobs if they don't load up customers with unnecessary inventory to hit numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must accept that sales are ultimately determined by consumption. Accept the fact that consumption plateaus from time to time. That being said equip the sales force with the tools necessary to cultivate good customer relationships. Stop the cost cutting and let the sales force sell!

    I worked at Mondelez International as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Your always free. The managers will have you sit around 99% of the day just in taking oxygen.

    Cons

    No experience related to real life. I wasted a whole summer. I would not recommend this to ANY STUDENT! it's a time killer. Also, they don't share honest information with you as to where you stand getting hired. Just lies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat college students with respect

    Pros

    Big name in the Industry
    Good salary

    Cons

    Worst leadership I have ever seen. The only criteria for your assessment is wither the top mangers like you or not. You will be pushed to deliver 200 %, be available 24/7 and then you manger will just tell you that you are not giving enough then he will credit for your work. You will learn the you are not what you do, you are what you advertise. Your are expected to be a spy for your manger and your manger will have zero confident in you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust and empower your employees.
    For top management see for your self and get down to the shop floor, don't just hear.

    Pros

    Great employees on the floor, benefits are good
    Great products

    Cons

    Hours are horrible, they expect you to be here 24/7
    They dont care about your family life.
    They are extremely anti union even though the bakery is all
    union. They are trying to break the unions out of bakerys and shipping most production to mexico without telling people in the usa where their food comes from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1- listen to employees
    2- earn the respect of employees

    I worked at Mondelez International

    Pros

    Well established Brands, a history of success stemming from Nabisco and Kraft heritage, hard working colleagues, decent but declining benefits.

    Cons

    Unattainable and unrealistic sales quotas, false promises, detached management, ever-expanding and inequitable workloads, horrible work/life balance. Upper management has no concept of the overwhelming workload required of those who are called on to produce. Company plays favorites, and the latest house-cleaning eliminated countless hard working and highly competent white males. Be prepared to sweat out a major restructure every 1 - 2 years. Decent outlook if you are female, minority, or a personal friend of key decision makers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beware of what happens when you cut too deep. Key customers and important initiatives are falling trough the cracks. Listen to your employees, and think twice before you eliminate those positions which produce the greatest profits and revenue.

    I have been working at Mondelez International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    As each year goes by the pros of working for Mondelez gets lower and lower. Currently sales reps and higher get a company car. Each quarter there are different incentives that are available including a rewards cards to hit the go to number. If your a full timer there is tuition reimbursement available. Benefits are a health care spending account and we also get dental and vision

    Cons

    There are many cons regarding working here:

    Medical insurance gets worst and worst each year and the rates keep going up

    Gps phones tracking your every move

    The district manager and the rms are more concern about the budget than the job getting done correctly

    If your a full time merchandiser your considered full time at 32 hours and management will cut your hours. As a part timer you can go a week without any hours

    To many reports being pulled and there is no trust in employees

    Company car gets smaller and smaller in size to the point where most feel unsafe

    Lack of quality help, with high turnover

    Can't get supplies that help do the job correctly

    Out of stocks and allocations make it impossible to hit objectives

    Lack of career advancement. If the RDR or the VP don't consider you a buddy there is really no room for career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and smell the coffee. You are destroying a good place to work. There is no career advancement unless your a female or have a Hispanic last name. The benefit package is a joke.

    Come out and work with reps and merchandisers without the local management to see what is really going on in the sales force.

    Pros

    Potential for good pay is decent in the correct situation.

    Cons

    Interested in diversity almost to the point of reverse racism/sexism.

    People are given positions they don't deserve nor are qualified for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use a merit based system to promote. Be an actual EOE. White males should have a chance also.
