    I have been working at Heinz full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people and brands. An opportunity to work with people who passionately believe in the quality and integrity of their products.

    Cons

    Expectations are set high - and you may find that the bar has been raised while you were playing the game.
    Even though Heinz may be in the top 5% of food companies, expect rewards package to be middle of the road, or slightly less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out to your front line people and see what is going on what they are doing and what challenges they face. Quit managing from your desk.
