    I have been working at Cadbury

    Pros

    Company is more tolerant and soft towards employees with a cultural fabrc knitted into it. people ar not harsh in their day to day behaviour and managers are not bully type. People in general are respected as humans.

    Cons

    mangement is scary fo decisons and repsonsibility is pushed downa wards from the top. Lower work force is not aligned with mangement and the sam is not acceped as s aproblem resulting in every one downg the job 2-03 levels below and hence vaccum in liong term strategy. Decsions are adhoc and unplanned. Most importantly every one does the job of other person and takes pride rather than doing their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete revamping the system from the scratch and puuting system before the person in all repects. Stop personifying the success and failure. In good system , no one can perform badly and in same way in a bad system, no one can perform in a better way. Puuting very clear accountability and resposnisbility bot at the top and bottom as they are the back boen. Should have a control on work force at the bottom in terms of discipline and resposnisbility which absolutely non- exstent as of now and noone like to bell the cat and take the bull by horns. If it coninues, already on teh down path.

    Pros

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

    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

    I have been working at Cadbury

    Pros

    reputation, scale, development all give cadbury an edge in talent recruitment. global role moves possible but getting harder due to emerging markets.

    Cons

    corporate identity preservation means decision making and reaction to change are slow and difficult to sustain. recent takeover by kraft creates uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure you identify key talent and experience during stabalisation to deliver results. Our futures depend on this as we are no longer the big fish.

    The leaders in this organization should move people around instead of letting them stay in one position too long. Don't do too much restructuring
