    I have been working at Cadbury

    Pros

    driven performance led culture. huge level of scope for progression both cross functionally and within function locally and internationally. high emphasis on leadership

    Cons

    By virtue of being a large organisation, decision making can often involve unnecessary meetings and stakeholder consultation, which in turn slows down decision making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to drive performance ethically. maintain the spirit and belief behind the brands; it is a major driver of people motivation and pride

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

    I worked at Cadbury full-time (more than an 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.
