I worked at Kraft Foods as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Kraft is a great company that treats their employees great with no micro-management. Employees have the opportunity to work in an environment with a high flexibility of work-life balance. There are core hours that you must be available (10am-3pm) but you can put in your hours any way you like. For example, you can work your 8 hour day from 7-3pm or 10-6pm if you'd like, but you cannot do 12-8pm. Understanding management, fun events & training, clean facilities and environment, constant training, a push to work for goals and strive to success (professional development focus).

Cons

All those things I said in the Pros? Most relate only to full KRAFT employees. Sadly, they CONTRACT most of the people who work for them to avoid paying any sort of benefits (Security, Facilities, Food service, engineers, marketing, lab techs, admins, IT help [got a problem, call the helpdesk...in India who have no clue wha you are asking about and takes a week to get your issue resolved], etc). It's really sad and in a company this big sometimes you are just a number... espcially with the recent split from Kraft-Mondelez where they forced many people to move to Chicagoland or leave the company. Tsk Tsk, Kraft. For a company that is exempt from taxes, you would think they would have a little more money to put towards real talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

What management? There is constant turnover in upper-level management.

    Pros

    Flexible, great career development, people who are passionate about their work, compelling company vision, great work environment, very diverse employeers.

    Cons

    There were very few cons to working at this company. The only area for improvement would be that there was a lot of internal competition for advancement rather than working as a team to accomplish goals.
