People are the best part of working at Kraft, management is still "old fashioned"

Pros

Working with great people and amazing brands and intergrated Supply Chain management system (SAP).

Cons

Management is still very 80's with managers that are not progressive. With the new president I continue to hope this changes, will have to wait and see.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to value your employee's for the working abilities, not the upward management that makes some people "stars" when they achievments do not validate the promotion. Also value employees that may not have the "academic education" as there are some who can still do the job better, faster, smarter then the university grad who has "theory" and no practical.

    Pros

    Excellent work environment, flexible time, co-workers are friendly and many products sold at employee price(VERY CHEAP)

    Cons

    Worst pay ever
    Short of hand such that every different machines break down every other day such that its impossible to keep track of work assignments and do follow up work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management people probably knows that salary is one of most important factor of work satisfaction, but too busy keeping the company more profitable resulting workers not being satisfied.
    Not saying they are bad people, in fact management people are very very nice. But lower management cant do much when there are corporate management above them, when they have to make one above them satisfied

    Pros

    I learned new job skills.

    Cons

    Company outsourcing too many jobs to India or Philippines. Promotions seem to be on favortism and not work skills and knowledge. The company was great at the beginning but slowly starting shifting and not for the better. At least not for Amercians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with real jobs skills. Company became too leanient with policy and procedures so employees became unprofessional.
