    Pros

    Really talented procurement department with some great managers who work to provide a fun atmosphere. Lots of room to grow your skills per the 3G model. Heinz is really into financial reporting, so if you like finance, or want to grow in that area, that is a plus. Good maternity leave benefits (6 weeks fully paid.) Heinz Academy offers lots of classes in various areas. Really cross functional role with lots of interaction with other departments. Procurement has lots of executive exposure.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not encouraged here. If you want it, you have to make it yourself by being really good at managing your time. There is also very little to no training for new hires. They just throw you into the fire. There can be unrealistic expectations for cost savings goals. Lots of "close of business" deadlines to constantly manage. Some managers are better than others at advocating against unrealistic asks on the Buyers. There is also a pretty small department without a ton of room to growth or be promoted beyond a buyer position. There were middle manager roles but those were done away with during the acquisition. Finally health care benefits here are CRAP. If you have a family of four it is like a $7k deductible for the year. It is practically like have no insurance because you have to pay everything out of pocket.

    2014 was an exciting year for the Heinz Micronutrient Campaign (HMC), which has been working for nearly 15 years towards the eradication of iron deficiency anemia and malnutrition around the world by supporting the development and distribution of vitamin and mineral powders to children in developing regions. Last year, the H.J. Heinz Company Foundation partnered with hunger relief agency Stop Hunger Now (SHN) by donating micronutrient powders for inclusion in the millions of meal packages that their organization distributes around the world each year.
