    Pros

    Full time employment + benefit pkg. company car ( you actually pay for part of it) bonus based on meeting or exceeding monthly sales objectives.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of amount of work you should accomplish in a 40hr schedule. Tons of physical labor. You are forbidden to Free-time with threat of being terminated but it's impossible to be a good service/sales rep in the time they expect the work to be done. No control over your merchandisers schedule but you are held accountable if they don't complete things to company standards etc....terrible company to work for.... Truly

    Advice to Management

    Be honest & speak up to your supervisors

    Pros

    Excellent PTO (if you can use it), great 401k match, good cross border learning

    Cons

    Where do I begin..under Cadbury the workforce was small but well compensated and the growth and innovation fostered a profitable company with a friendly work environment. Kraft came along and slowed the company down immensely. At first, they added a whole bunch of make-work jobs, mostly in the backoffice when they downgraded to an older version of SAP. Flash forward to today and nearly everyone I started with has either been cut or has found better jobs elsewhere.

    During my time in Research I've seen project after project killed due to cost and only the ones which promoted cost cutting with cheaper (usually Chinese) ingredients move forward. Meanwhile, the smaller (usually private) competitors climb further and further ahead since they try to answer the customers needs/wants and actually roll out fun new products.

    Meanwhile the Zero Based Budgeting and the cost cutting mentality has created a culture of fear where no one dares to speak up for fear of losing their jobs in the next round of firing. Some people even blatantly back stab and sabotage their coworkers in order to curry favor and protect themselves. No workplace is perfect but between the lack of emphasis on growth and the relentless costcutting I don't see the company lasting more than a few years before being bought out by someone more competent.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the current Executive team and find leaders who knows how to manage costs but still retain good talent and fund innovation and actually create growth. You can't just cut your way to growth.

    Pros

    As months go by the pros are getting less and less. Company car, tuition reimbursement, fair amount of paid time off

    Cons

    Crappy benefits
    No work life balance
    They always want more and your never good enough
    Moving up the ladder is only if your female or have a Hispanic last name
    Upper management lives by reports
    Manager texts all night long, holidays, PTO
    I deploy schedules all the help
    Lack of help
    GPS tracks your every move

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting merchandising hours or the job won't get done correctly

    Need to realize that Nabisco is not the name brand as it used to be

    Need to come out with something new. Belvita is the last new thing we had. Too many flavors of oreos

    Pros

    Was a really good company before the split in 2012. I had more respect for leadership prior to the breakup. Downhill after the split.

    Cons

    Where do I begin.....
    Most of the good Finance people are gone.
    IT managers and above boast about who they can cut to save their own hide
    IT in East Hanover will continue to help ruin the company. They should close it down. The only thing they are good at is pretending that they know how to lead.
    People do not get cut because of performance; it is all based on "who you know".
    The company paid a fortune for Accenture to implement zero based budgeting which was actually already being done. Accenture consultants were terrible but they helped cut Mondelez jobs to cover their cost.
    Most are confused at how Irene Rosenfeld got a huge pay increase in 2014 when everyone else got jack for bonus and the company did not reach targets. In fact, no one understands why she still has her job. This goes to show how messed up the company is. They try to get 2 jobs out of a lot of people with no reward in the end. If your job is cut or you quit, you are the lucky one since you get to move on and work for a progressive growing company with better products. The company will get sold or merged soon. Get out while you can!

    Pros

    It is a paid internship which is nice. And you are compensated for gas which is also a perk but other than that, not much else.

    Cons

    Was ill advised when expecting the position and was basically worked like a pack mule for months. I had to work alone and basically was doing extensive labor that was not disclosed to me before hand. Management did not care about anyone lower staff and quota was made to be absolutely unreasonable. No one I met working there was happy or happy with the company or their pay.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your merchandisers and sales reps require a reasonable amount of work rather than the excessive that you require.

    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 Management

    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.
