    Pros

    Kraft was a great place to work, great culture, lots of career growth opportunity.

    Cons

    The culture will be completely different, and not for the better once the Heinz/3G acquisition closes.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late to turn back, but you shouldn't have agreed to the sale to Heinz/3G.

    Pros

    Good Management .. Good Culture .. Strong Brands Great Teams

    Cons

    Cahill is a disaster and the merger was all about him getting more money 19M payout

    Culture is changing with Cahill - bring back Tony .. he encouraged Trust, Working Together, Keeping it Simple and VALUES

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell out your people to 3G .. We are in this for the long term .. being cheap is not the answer .. balance is the answer .. you have great brands don;t ruin them

    Pros

    - fantastic corporate HQ in Northfield - open work spaces, lots of light, modern and interesting space
    - interesting work with smart people
    - flexible hours - you check your email at night but on the flip side you can flex your day hours when needed

    Cons

    - everything is a priority! so people tell you to prioritize yet you still need to do the big stuff and the little stuff
    - too many layers of management, too many cooks in the kitchen on marketing communication
    - Heinz and 3G ambiguity and uncertainty - with recent purchase of Kraft, TBD on how it plays out

    Advice to Management

    Heinz/3G - work quickly and save us the angst
