Great company, of course it all depends on your local management

Part Time Sales Service Representative (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I have been working at Mondelez International part-time for more than 3 years

ProsAlmost everyone I have worked with is great and cares about the company.

ConsThey pay you according to how slow you work and then expect you to work faster and faster.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou drastically need to find a better way to pay your employees. The old or slower employees make more than the younger faster employees.

Dissapointed

Sales Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mondelez International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsHealth benefits immediately when hired on at full time. 3 weeks paid vacation. Good if you need to gain experience. Great co-workers that are willing to lend a hand.

ConsAll about shareholders. Do not get enough help in order to do the job that we are hired to do. Cut backs on everything. Sell Sell Sell in 42 hours or less. No training, horrible equipment that we need daily to do our job.

Advice to Senior ManagementHear what your employees are telling you

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Popularity contest.....

Analyst (Former Employee)
East Hanover, NJ

I worked at Mondelez International as a contractor for more than a year

ProsGood "name" when I told people who I work(ed) for. I may flame the group below but there are also a number of solid folks who work there who made the Kraft name what it is. Thankfully, I dealt with those people daily.

ConsSeemingly, if you're not pretty or don't fit any sort of mold that they need you to be in...forget it. You will soon need a 'peer' if you want to advance (refer to the 1st sentence).

Advice to Senior ManagementI was with Procurement when they moved to EH from Illinois. In short nevermind the "Vision 2016", DPO terms, BS barbecues or gatherings where only certain folks are invited. Concentrate on the fundamentals of Purchasing NOT Procurement and you WILL achieve those visions. As a firm example there are highly educated people in the group who don't even now how to obtain a spend report within their commodity base which is simply embarassing. It's a Strategic Sourcing group with a $35B spend....Some of the team doesn't even know what a D&B report is! It's also the 1st group where their vendor base controls THEM and not the other way around. Tons of duplicity in the vendor base where numerous vendors do the exact same thing leading to wasted revenue. All of this is Purchasing 101...

Oh, and return a simple e-mail requesting (painfully simple) assistance within the group? Right...doesn't matter because they all leave for Apple anyway....

Honestly, I could go on....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great part time job for the average college student

Sales Service Representative (Former Employee)
Lansing, MI

I worked at Mondelez International part-time for less than a year

ProsWorked around my schedule nicely. Pay was pretty decent. Management was very helpful and was always there for you 24/7.

ConsHours are horrible. That is during the weekend at least. Go to work at 7pm and come back around 5am.

Wide experience with Human Resources systems like SAP & Success Factors Tool

HRIS Specialist (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mondelez International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFriendly environment full of joy & transparency, we act like owners for each matter. we discuss any issues from within the department, & we all decide together, then we deliver.

ConsAs it has been more than 3 years for me at Mondelez, launched all the HR systems & amended them upon the needs of the organization across Egypt, Algeria & Lebanon, I need to explore new challenges, new projects, new learnings.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Sales

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mondelez International full-time for more than 5 years

ProsEarly hours and weekends off

ConsNever enough help nor time to get things done properly, no appreciation and endless pressure.

Advice to Senior ManagementLittle compensation for the pound of flesh extracted. Upper management is doing great, they get paid in stock options and they bonus, but those doing the heavy lifting are having more placed on their backs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Camp Hill, PA

I have been working at Mondelez International full-time for more than 10 years
