    philosophy of the management is that anything can be outsourced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide opportunities for new talent to grow

    I have been working at Mondelez International part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love to be in a faced paced environment and love to be moving around. I also love the flexibility of the job considering I have children. However they are all in school and it is very easy to manage. The best place to work for ever! You have to be a trust worthy person and be honest about all you do. It is what you should do. Mondelez puts trust in you so you have to give back as well.

    Cons

    Learning all the SKU numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A very flexible workplace and I am able to work all days needed fro this company. I would love more hours!

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for promotions, but must be willing to relocate often. Great benefits including bonuses, company car, additional incentives, and full health benefits and 401k.

    Cons

    Worked long hours creating a difficult work-life balance. Driven by shareholders and what is best for the company, not what is best for the employees. Upper management didn't realize the extent of the unhappiness or issues facing a majority of employees in the sales field.

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

    Pros

    Great brands, great history (Nabisco) and most categories are sustainable long term in the eyes of the consumer. Strong pay and benefits package but comes at a cost.

    Cons

    Organization continues to promise expectations above consumer purchase patterns driving a significant increase in costs. Within the same breath they implement cost cutting strategies without any adjustment to the objective. Senior leadership is lost chasing trough rabbit holes just to justify their commitments to the street. With all that being said they have significant moral issues throughout the organization all while leadership continues to add head count at the top while reducing lower tiers of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs a shake up, not just adding a CGO and other higher level roles. Marketing and product development needs true innovation that does not cannibalize base sales. Calling a line extension incremental over and over will not get it done. In addition the sales organization continues to be rewarded with incentives that drives poor behavior, and then you write them up for doing what you asked them to do (drive sales beyond consumer trends).

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

    Pros

    Awesome office in Deerfield, very well set up for employee comfort including massage chairs and stand up desks available. Also have expresso coffee machines--free coffee always. We had on-site help desk for any IT issues, and ergonomic seating, good lighting. Close free parking, great cafeteria, I was a contractor, but thought management treated everyone with respect. We had many parties, celebrations, and lunch-time educational sessions always included a free lunch. Mondelez is a very generous company (offshoot of Kraft Foods)

    Cons

    People are so busy that they did not leave the building very often. Also the open seating is good but sometimes it gets so noisy that it is difficult to hear if you are in a meeting. Not too many cons!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was hard to be a contractor and know I would be leaving because I made great friends. I think you lose some great hard-working potential employees by using so many contract positions. I wanted to stay so badly and they did pay me well.

    Pros

    Competitive pay for area. That is about it for this company, that is in serious need for a complete management overhaul.

    Cons

    Expect you to live and bleed for this company. So called "leadership team" is out for number one and that's themselves. Zero development, no training and lots of discipline that is rude and very unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step into the twenty-first century and read a book about leadership. Stop micromanaging your supervisors and allow them to do what they were hired to do and that is improve the processes that you have screwed up beyond recognition.

    Not the best pay, if your pt then the hours are random and there's a possibility for a lot to traveling, being a retail job you may have to deal with unreasonable people.

    Pros

    Comprehensive medical/dental program. Bonus potential is available for quarter and annual basis as well as miscellaneous incentives from time to time.

    Cons

    Culture has been consistently eroding over the past two years as Mondelez International was spun off from Kraft Foods. Company does not demonstrate the high levels of integrity they profess on paper. Employees are stuck dealing with corp decisions that should be dealt with at a much higher level than the field. Budgets have taken over and have ruined the great in store service once known for. RVP's and up have become more dictorial than every before. Company does not put resources into their people. Bonuses are a thing of the past as that savings now goes to the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for the best person to fill the job and not focus so much on the diversity factor. Diversity will always take over as the decision factor at Mondelez International for new hires/promotions.
