    I have been working at Kraft Foods full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, met with a lot of different personality types through out the territory. Company car with great benefits.

    Cons

    They own you management constantly micro managed and expected you to drop what you were doing and become available even on the weekends. If you don't they will respond with demeaning comments. They look at employees that are not bringing in sales, such as merchandisers, as "overtime leeches," (directly from my district managers mouth). No work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more training or retire some of you have been at it too long and are just disgusting human beings.

    Post split, it's morphing into a company focused on costs savings, not marketing/innovation

    Pros

    Great classic CPG experience that is well respected in the industry. Your early years help set a strong foundation of analytical/problems solving skills and getting things done by influencing a team of cross functional members many years senior to you.

    Cons

    The usual politics that come with a big company where who you know & who likes you sometimes supersedes the quality of your work. This can be frustrating as you spend time on non-value added things vs truly driving the business forward.
    Additionally, I feel this company is light on brand strategy & pure marketing talent. They claim to be getting better here but I don't see action items that follow that claim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say....There's plenty of talk of increased investments in marketing, innovation & talent development to the analysts but I'm not seeing it in our strategic plans.
