    Pros

    Comprehensive medical/dental program. Bonus potential is available for quarter and annual basis as well as miscellaneous incentives from time to time.

    Cons

    Culture has been consistently eroding over the past two years as Mondelez International was spun off from Kraft Foods. Company does not demonstrate the high levels of integrity they profess on paper. Employees are stuck dealing with corp decisions that should be dealt with at a much higher level than the field. Budgets have taken over and have ruined the great in store service once known for. RVP's and up have become more dictorial than every before. Company does not put resources into their people. Bonuses are a thing of the past as that savings now goes to the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for the best person to fill the job and not focus so much on the diversity factor. Diversity will always take over as the decision factor at Mondelez International for new hires/promotions.

    Pros

    Do what you wish when you wish to do it

    Cons

    Zero chance for movement upward! Unless your an intern then you need to know nothing, learn nothing, add zero value, and boom your moving on up to the east side

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your H.R. and core priorities inline! You say inspire trust lol act like an owner lol lies lies lies

    Pros

    M-F work week with the weekends and Holidays off. Company car with gas card for personal use. Flexibility to adjust your start time. Work independently on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Pay, benefits are low quality, dealing with abusive store personnel, unattainable sales goals, no room for error mentality, constant change, poor leadership, almost no training or employee development, EXTREMELY STRESSFUL, physically demanding work, all changes or cuts come at the sales rep's expense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As of late, this has been a disorganized place to work. The opportunities for advancement have declined, the future does not look hopeful. Please put some focus back into your employees.

    I have been working at Mondelez International part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I work another full time job so the flexibility here is great, also the pay was decent for a part time gig.

    Cons

    The mileage program can stink if they give you only one store. My first manager was good but the new one they brought in was terrible, wasn't willing to work with you and only communicated when he needed you for something. Any concerns I had were never addressed. Also some sales reps were real bad and ready to throw you under the bus, but most were really good if you just did what they asked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect and be willing to work with them. If you have any issues with them you should work it out.

    Pros

    Descent pay and benefits. Hours flexible. Loved working independently. Pays mileage.

    Cons

    First manager great. Second one, terrible. I ended up quitting because of it. Made complaint, but I do not think Mondelez cares about the actual worker. Too many chiefs and not enough workers. Managers take rewards for merchandisers hard work. Manager was rude, racist and condescending. Keeping fingers crossed this manager goes back to merchandiser and takes employee appreciation classes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe you employees. Managers just want the bonus and paycheck. Merchandisers work hard and get little praise.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Union keeps you paid well and protected. Not many places will pay you so good for general unskilled labor. coworkers were great people

    Cons

    everything else. first year layoffs like crazy. they hire too many just to lay them off. They lay people off yet have tons of people working OT, constant shift changes, you get loaned out to other depts with no training and they expect you to know the job. Management cares about one thing: getting product out the door. even if it isnt up to standard, cracked, burnt, etc. they claim to care about safety and shove it down your throat meanwhile running at an unsafe speed and rushing everything and everyone. horrible HR dept! nobody knows their job. it's not what you know, it's who you know! If you dont work OT constantly, management couldnt care less about you. Favoritism based on race. white people come last based on fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue on how to treat people, and make sure your HR dept knows what they are doing.

    Health benefits immediately when hired on at full time. 3 weeks paid vacation. Good if you need to gain experience. Great co-workers that are willing to lend a hand.

    Cons

    All about shareholders. Do not get enough help in order to do the job that we are hired to do. Cut backs on everything. Sell Sell Sell in 42 hours or less. No training, horrible equipment that we need daily to do our job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Mondelez International as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Good "name" when I told people who I work(ed) for. I may flame the group below but there are also a number of solid folks who work there who made the Kraft name what it is. Thankfully, I dealt with those people daily.

    Cons

    Seemingly, if you're not pretty or don't fit any sort of mold that they need you to be in...forget it. You will soon need a 'peer' if you want to advance (refer to the 1st sentence).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was with Procurement when they moved to EH from Illinois. In short nevermind the "Vision 2016", DPO terms, BS barbecues or gatherings where only certain folks are invited. Concentrate on the fundamentals of Purchasing NOT Procurement and you WILL achieve those visions. As a firm example there are highly educated people in the group who don't even now how to obtain a spend report within their commodity base which is simply embarassing. It's a Strategic Sourcing group with a $35B spend....Some of the team doesn't even know what a D&B report is! It's also the 1st group where their vendor base controls THEM and not the other way around. Tons of duplicity in the vendor base where numerous vendors do the exact same thing leading to wasted revenue. All of this is Purchasing 101...

    Oh, and return a simple e-mail requesting (painfully simple) assistance within the group? Right...doesn't matter because they all leave for Apple anyway....

    Honestly, I could go on....

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule
    Workplace Freedom
    401 K
    Gain Experience
    Looks good on resume

    Cons

    Managers only care about putting money in their pocket
    Bonuses(they tax most of it)
    Company car( you pay for it each check and they are terrible)
    Upper management knows who it wants to move up.
    Objectives are ridiculous
    Overtime( managers will write you up if you go over your hours)
    Company forces out too much product to make numbers
    Kept in the dark on the direction of the company
    Managers don't practice the values they preach

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the same sacrifices you are asking others to make. Actually listen to what workers in the field have to say. Stop loading up stores to get a true reading on numbers. Stop it with the favorites.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance. Compensation is 'meh'.

    Cons

    No opportunities. Dead-end career. Bitter employees. Out-dated technology. Everything is outsourced with zero ownership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your team! It's frustrating at the little amount of communication of overall business activities/objectives/techniques or knowledge sharing. Everything is very much "On your own" and never communicated to if you're doing something wrong or improperly.
