    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.

    I worked at Cadbury full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    service oriented and training based job

    Cons

    low salary and more over same salary to both UG and PG graduated employees.
    no office for technical executives
    immediate decisions regarding office meeting without prior intimations to the executives.
    No difference between an Under Graduate degree employee and a Masters degree employee

    Advice to Management

    Consider our degrees and fix the salary accordingly.
    categorize the hierarchy in the field level as sometimes field officers influences Technical executives.
    after recruiting your employees for a concerned job, provide them 1 or 2 month of training and evaluate their efficiency so that they can prove their ability in field level. This is entirely absent in this area.
