    I worked at Cadbury full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work culture - felt individuals were valued, encouraged to grow and have a good work life balance.
    Those working in the CSR department were very passionate about working with local communities rather than it being simply a marketing tool.

    Cons

    Chaotic reorganisation. Got taken over. But all in all, no serious cons. Would be good to have greater capacity for advancement within the company, many colleagues left.

    Former Employee - Industrial Designer in Birmingham, England (UK)

    I worked at Cadbury full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High level of graduate responsibility. Was feeling very responsible from the start and straight away was made to feel like a professional. Co-workers are supportive and friendly and encouraging, the people are probably the companies best asset.

    Cons

    At the time a large pool of middle management meant decisions were often made slowly, and much of the work lacks the creativity I had envisaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support your work force by giving them a great place to work.

    Pros

    Big company, training good if it suited others, pension was good.

    Former Employee - Quality Systems Administrator in Keynsham, England (UK)

    I worked at Cadbury full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A really good employer, I won't say there was never a bad day but I enjoyed my work in the QA dept. I learned a lot, the training I gained made me a very saleable commodity when the factory closed and I had to look elsewhere, the redundancy pay was fair and my pension good.

    Cons

    The factory (Somerdale) being closed and production moved to Poland. I do not believe it was necessary nor, in the long run, do I think Cadbury / Kraft will profit by it. Somerdale was surrounded by a green field site, a new factory could have been built there, all employees could have been made redundant and, those who wanted, been re-employed on new Ts & Cs, ensuring a trained and competent staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the workforce, their ideas for product improvement, enhanced productivity, views on product development, are worth hearing and would be far cheaper than a test market.
