    - Generous salaries and financials compared to the market.

    Cons

    - Parochial feel in Australia

    Advice to Management

    - Better communications to staff.
    - Fewer restructures.
    - More flexibility in moving staff across geographies.

    Pros

    reputation, scale, development all give cadbury an edge in talent recruitment. global role moves possible but getting harder due to emerging markets.

    Cons

    corporate identity preservation means decision making and reaction to change are slow and difficult to sustain. recent takeover by kraft creates uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you identify key talent and experience during stabalisation to deliver results. Our futures depend on this as we are no longer the big fish.

    I worked at Cadbury full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Market Leader in Chocolates - Targets & Growths never an issue...
    Very strong in systems and processes.
    Highly data oriented - even outlet level sales can be tracked anytime.
    The team members and various functions are usually quite friendly, supportive and helpful.
    In my times, the bosses were EXCELLENT. Everyone was a gentleman / lady, the company culture was very nice. (Of-late, am hearing a rumor that this has gone for a toss.)
    Distributors are majorly stable, though some corrections have been happening of-late.

    Cons

    Lags behind in small toffee / candy / bubblegum. But the company has high hopes for those.
    Same with Bournvita, Oreo and Tang.
    Acute stock issues in high selling products. So everyone will push one to achieve targets with slow moving lines.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the tag of being Employee Friendly. Your products will sell anyhow, provided there is enough production. And don't oppress the peaceful distributors, they are an asset to the company.
