    Pros

    Many of the people I worked with were very kind and willing to help me out in any way they could. The pay was fair, if not more than fair, for an internship. They wanted their employees to have at least a basic understanding of the different processes that in some way affect their own line of work.

    Cons

    Many colleagues who have been there for years complained about the limited room for growth. They said they were promised/hinted at promotions that never came. Many of the merchandisers have to work another job just to be able to support their family.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make false promises. Pay attention to the employees "below" you and try to work with them to make their lives easier.

    Pros

    Mondelez is a very comfortable place to work. The IS department has done an incredible job making work/life balance easy for employees. As long as you have an internet connection, you can work from anywhere in the world. Many white collar colleagues work from home every Friday, and some only step foot in the office 1-2x a month. Some even "work" from their vacations to skirt the limits on PTO days. That's not to say it's easy work; many colleagues are expected to do the same work that was managed by two or three different roles prior to the Kraft split. Night and weekend work is almost a given during most projects. Pay is extremely high because the corporate locations are usually an hour or more from major urban centers which hurts recruiting. Benefits are good but have been reduced substantially in recent years (pensions are no longer available to new employees; healthcare plans have gone to high deductible models; the 401k matching has been reduced.) So, you get a decent work/life balance thanks to the mobility options, nice benefits, and a high-paying job, but in general one should expect there to be much in the way of growth opportunity beyond that. It's a good place to be comfortable, which is great for the right kind of person.

    Cons

    The company is almost constantly embarking on an organizational restructuring in some form or fashion. That means that annually colleagues are laid off and those who remain must pick up the slack. With the recent focus on cost control, there are very few job openings in many of the white collar departments, and often the openings that do come up are filled from outside the company. There are very few advancement opportunities into management and many people find themselves in specialist positions without clear career progression. This tends to drag down morale and most people seem content to do their assigned jobs and get out of the office as quickly as possible most days. It is hard to say there is really a culture at Mondelez; something is just missing.

    Advice to Management

    The "top down" mandates (particularly in regards to organizational design) seem to run counter to the "open and inclusive" value for Mondelez. Rather than deciding the career futures of employees in metaphorical smoke-filled rooms, HR and senior management should make an actual effort to know the wants and needs of the people they lead.

    Pros

    Company Car, Tablet, Cell phone. Off most of the Major holidays.

    Cons

    No room for advancement in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Should be far to other employees if they want to move up in the company

    Pros

    As a merchandiser you are about 99% independent, besides working with someone every now and then. As long as you work hard you will be asked to continue to work with them.

    Cons

    The company just got down sized so there isn't much movement within the company. They try to keep you at a part-time position and it is very hard to get a full-time position (why I left). Management depends on your location, depending on who is your manager scheduling may or may not be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open minded to ideas of your employees to increase proficiency, and if you want employees to be loyal and stay with the company, it would be nice if you could show more movement.

    Pros

    Not stuck in an office all day, no one hanging over shoulder watching everything you do, get to meet and interact with a lot of different people, company car, bonuses for your hard work, and great products to sell.

    Cons

    Treated poorly at times by both store personnel and company management, small bonuses and not much for incentives, no opportunity to move up within the company, they hire and promote unqualified applicants, a lot of work and little help, and very poor management from the CEO on down.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who have performed poorly and are unqualified, treat your employees better and with respect, stop threatening your employees of being fired every chance you get, and start promoting employees who actually work hard and do there jobs well.

    Pros

    It is a paid internship which is nice. And you are compensated for gas which is also a perk but other than that, not much else.

    Cons

    Was ill advised when expecting the position and was basically worked like a pack mule for months. I had to work alone and basically was doing extensive labor that was not disclosed to me before hand. Management did not care about anyone lower staff and quota was made to be absolutely unreasonable. No one I met working there was happy or happy with the company or their pay.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your merchandisers and sales reps require a reasonable amount of work rather than the excessive that you require.
