I worked at Cadbury full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

A really good employer, I won't say there was never a bad day but I enjoyed my work in the QA dept. I learned a lot, the training I gained made me a very saleable commodity when the factory closed and I had to look elsewhere, the redundancy pay was fair and my pension good.

Cons

The factory (Somerdale) being closed and production moved to Poland. I do not believe it was necessary nor, in the long run, do I think Cadbury / Kraft will profit by it. Somerdale was surrounded by a green field site, a new factory could have been built there, all employees could have been made redundant and, those who wanted, been re-employed on new Ts & Cs, ensuring a trained and competent staff.

Advice to Management

Listen to the workforce, their ideas for product improvement, enhanced productivity, views on product development, are worth hearing and would be far cheaper than a test market.
