    Pros

    You get a company car and great benefits. Also you have a lot of freedom and do not have a boss criticing everything you do.

    Cons

    The company went through a merger and made it a lot more difficult to move up in the company. They have downgraded are benefits, taken away vacation, and made bonuses more challenging to obtain. This is a good company to gain experience out of college but do not expect to stay long-term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more hands on. Managing through emails and text messages creates low morale for the team.

    I have been working at Mondelez International part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You have the freedom of working in the field alone traveling from store to store unloading trucks and backstocking shelves. The pay isnt too bad either

    Cons

    You never know what days you will be working until late at night the night before sometimes, you dont always get paid for the work you've done the prior week because the system they have is flawed, communication between the merchandiser and the supervisors is nearly impossible at times, and the stores are usually upset with the ordering which gets taken out on the merchandiser unloading it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with merchandiser and stores on whats going on and fix the payroll system

    Great Brands with No Job Security and Below Average Management

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Associate Director in East Hanover, NJ
    Current Employee - Associate Director in East Hanover, NJ

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

    Pros

    1. Brands
    2. Co workers
    3. Above average benefits and competitive compensation
    4. Encourages multi culture hiring and very friendly to women
    5. Flexible work from home schedule

    Cons

    1. No job security. Ongoing restructuring, high number of layoffs, performance doesn't create security, recent re org eliminated mostly men aged in the low 50's. Very very political atmosphere.
    2. Limited Career Opportunities. Layoffs eliminate positions that could offer career advancement
    3. Mid and upper middle management often have little management training and often limited understanding of their function. Decisions take too far long. Inexperience leads to heavy red tape and the bureaucracy can be overwhelming.
    4. Senior management has created a false sense of camaraderie. Meetings and town halls show us faking enthusiasm. Fear of telling it like it is. Seeming arrogance by senior leaders. No one cares that our global strategy officer also has to manage his old north american president job. Ongoing changes leaves us feeling they have no direction and just making changes to appease investors.
    5. Work life balance: 50+ hour weeks are common. Elimination of administrative assistants adds many hours of tedious work. Common to not use 10 vacation days each year. Productivity is constantly being disrupted by communication of upcoming org changes
    6. Open office structure has further reduced productivity. Everyone in a cubicle separated by 6 inch wall. You can see and hear everything everyone on the floor is doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the values you publish and recognize your employees want to love this company. Stop the incessant accusations that our company's expenses are twice that of peer companies.

    Pros

    If your fresh out of college this is a great company to look at. The company prefers a young workforce with no experience. Excellent first Job benefits and training. Be prepared to work independently and share your success.

    Cons

    No college degree do not apply. Sadly company prefers college grads with no experience to sustain the future. The tactic is quite obvious. College grads are hungry for success and this company is open to that willingness to succeed as you'll do anything your asked to move forward. Managers are increasingly young. They only know company policy and do as there told. Lack experience to handle people correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance, teambuilding and family first are important to the company. But sadly it seems those things only apply to folks working in locations. Folks in the field are at mercy of region or district manager. Have a problem at 6pm? Call a manager and your scolded for bothering them on personal time. Make a request of your manager......good luck. There time is more important. If your asked to do something you must do it now....now exception. Manager calls texts,or emails when your off your expected to respond...period. No more local HR. Sadly the only person you can really talk to is your manager. The family feeling and closeness has been long gone.

    Pros

    Love that the company is huge on work life balance, women, and minorities. I work from home and I love it! The company is perfectly ok with this as long as everything gets done. Which it
    Does!

    Cons

    Board of Directors is WAY too concerned with what wal street says. Our budgets are a little ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have to spend money on our customers and employees. It's not all about the investors sometimes.

    Pros

    Not stuck to one place, good work ethic among co workers, free samples, paid transportation, lets you work independent, monthly/quarterly bonuses, challenging, meet lots of people, good benefits.

    Cons

    Success depends on uncontrollable factors, could have nasty customers who are always right, unrealistic support in the field, labor intensive stocking every day, anything wrong it always comes back to you, hard to move up.

    Pros

    The job is challenging yet low stress. You get recognized for your hard work and initiatives. There is always opportunity to undertake meaningful
    Project work that will get you recognition. Employees generally do not get stuck in a silo; it is possible to move between different functions.

    Cons

    There is a lot of bureaucracy and red tape, making it hard to get things done without pushing. Management structure is very rigid and is difficult to break through.
