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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Kraft is catering to shareholders more than employees

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Vacation up to 5 weeks after 20 years. Pay is ok, 401k only

    Cons

    Safety is a Zero error expectation so one little mistake and if someone doesn't like= no Job. health insurance is poor with a 5000 dollar deduct for family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach employees and work with them stop hiring so much temp help it doesn't look good.
