    Pros

    People believe that Heinz is a strong company - experience with this organization offers any employee credibility, rightly or wrongly.

    Cons

    Heinz will drain any employee like a sponge, expecting long hours, the work of 2 people, and little recognition for going above and beyond, because it is expected.

    Mar/April 2012: Heinz North America has delayed an already late delivery of their SAP installation by 2 more years and fired all of the staff who was working on this project. The vendors/consulting partners who have watched Heinz bungle this project for the past 2-3 years now think that they are insane. Every other CPG company has SAP...Heinz just can't make this happen.

    Mar/April 2012: The local salaried workforce was diminished by about 5%, many others still employed are in fear of losing their jobs.

    The company only offers a $5000 per family ($2500 per individual) high-deductible health plan that is very expensive to buy - this ends up costing every employee a fortune and discourages them from seeking the healthcare that he/she needs, as the employee has to pay for it on their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your entire executive staff and start over - these leaders OBVIOUSLY are self serving and are not acting in the best interest of the organization. Your healthcare benefits are the worst in Pittsburgh and your employees are spreading the word. Too much of the cash is spent on your top tier with little rewards for the worker bees who get things done.

    The Keystone project is a complete debacle. Shame on you.

    Bad project management of SAP implentation.
    Lack of new product innovation, and US growth

    Listen to employees; keep them happy by finding what they want to do and where they want to go. Don't decide for them.
