I have been working at Heinz full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work from home
Somewhat flexible
some departments are good

Cons

Not flexible enough, it exists but is sort of frowned upon to leave before4
Do not treat employees to enough like luxury boxes or tickets
froze pay increases last 2 of 3 years.
morale sucks after layoffs
commute

Advice to ManagementAdvice

need to improve morale and stop freezing merit increases, that essentially ruins some will to work hard.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Heinz full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Heinz had a great program in called "First Call". It is where Heinz wasts retailers to call Heinz first (Before anyone else). The program has been successful and has helped Heinz climb the Kantar rankings. The problem is that Heinz went away from this and everything is now in a nosedive.

    Cons

    One word describes the current issuse at Heinz: CULTURE. It is an abysmal place to work right now and not a single person is happy. People are treated very poorly and most work unGodly hours. There is no work life balance. No rewards. No happiness. It is grim to say the least. The hard part is that it is getting worse and leadership does not care. I am probably on the way out as soon as I can find work in this bad economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really go back to your core principles.

    I have been working at Heinz full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Heinz has a solid foundation of A1 brands and a history of success. Things like Ore-Ida, Ketchup, 57, etc will always ben in the kitchens of Americans.

    Cons

    1) The culture is a shock for anyone new to the company. It is fairly heartless, cold, and drab. You seem to be nothing more than a number to Heinz and there is little to no care for employees. Work life balance does not exist. The environment in the office is very poor

    2) Very little room for upward growth on the sales side past CDM

    3* No diversity

    4) Terribly mismanaged problems

    5) Spending money on trade vs. long term brand building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees first - all the rest will follow
