    I worked at Cadbury Adams USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were very good, they offered tuition reimbursement and room to grow in the company. Friendly people and working conditions. I enjoyed my career there and would have remained until I retired had they not been bought by Kraft Foods.

    Cons

    Since being acquired by Kraft Foods the job opportunities are no longer available. A lot of company restructuring was occurring and a lot of the Cadbury employees were downsized.

    Advice to Management

    When a company buys a very well run company it is much smarter to keep the employees that ran that company well.
    Cadbury was extremely profitable and sales grew every year.

    I have been working at Cadbury Adams USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the products we make, so it's easy to believe in what we sell. Cadbury is the top chocolate manufacturer in the world.

    Cons

    Company is constantly cutting cost back. They have trimmed all the fat Azande continue to cut costs. It's hard to do your job well when you feel like you have one tied behind your back.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your core values. In theory they are great but leadership doesn't model them.
