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

Pros

Great group of concerned people to work with. Intentions to innovate have ideas & suggestions turning all into being more engaged with what we do.

Cons

Moral is down due to the managements ability to con the labor force into thinking they're in an all in to win environment, while using terms like fractional personal. Communications between labor & management has turned into an us -vs- them thing. The Company's employee policy is a smoke screen to the arbitrary rule of H.R. that submits to who ever the plants manager is at the time. There is a cyclone of change taking place that as cyclones often do; are creating loss.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When the things you are doing are not producing the results that are a plus, go back to what was creating the pluses instead of continuing to create more negatives.

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

    Pros

    Big company that puts a lot of emphasis on brand strategy, great benefits for little to nothing in terms of out of pocket expenses, nearly limitless opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Can seem to get lost in the hustle and bustle, have to be willing to work for a company in which you'll probably never meet the CEO, there are very set ways of doing things and those will not be changed (you'll have to adapt to their ways)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time getting to know your employees. It's always nice when a boss' boss knows your name and a few things about a lower-level employee.
