Approves of CEO

I worked at Kraft Foods as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

People are really friendly, willing to help as much as they can, you get exposure to a lot of different things going on within the compnay.

Cons

Some of the managers are really busy and not take enough time to talk to interns/coops assigned to them, usually takes a while to get results from labs, a gap between the contractors and full time employees

Advice to Management

Close the gap between contractors and full time employees, get the managers and higher ups involved in the new hires.

    I have been working at Kraft Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a diverse portfolio of products that are well-known around the world.

    Cons

    The company is always looking for short term gains instead of investing to build for long term growth. The budget is always being cut. Real succession planning is very limited, but they do go through the motions.

    Advice to Management

    Need to value existing employees and better acknowledge their hard work.

    I have been working at Kraft Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance - ability to work remotely as you see fit. Fitness center, company store. Company wide bonuses and cost of living increases each year for all employees (although amount is determined by overall performance).

    Cons

    Kraft is concerned about the bottom line and shareholders. In that way, they seek to cut costs everywhere, and will undervalue, underresource and create aggressive timelines for projects. They expect employees to pick up the work of multiple people. Kraft employees are being let go in favor of hiring consultants or offshore help which are cheaper to employ. Because of their drive for the bottom line, the employee burn out is at an all time high. People are tired and stressed, and feel locked into their position.

    Advice to Management

    Create realistic goals and timelines with the proper amount of funding and people to accomplish them. Stop under valuing our work!
