  1. "Good place to work, benefits for a company of this size are not very good."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Many opportunities exist in Kraft both US and Internationally. If you are young and looking for a place to grow and prosper, Kraft is a good place - but to advance and heighten your salary you must be willing to move around. Very large company so depending on where your located and what division you are in will make a big difference in the culture. Kraft is made up of many smaller companies and each still have maintained their previous cultures.

    Cons

    Not as friendly to older employees - caters to 20-30 crowd. Benefits and raises are not what one may expect from a company this large. Has lost a lot of the family feel in the past few years. New review mapping procedures relate more to minimal business experienced employees (IE: those starting in their career) verses a review mapping which has growth for both inexperienced and seasoned employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - They attract a lot of good talent; you can make some good friends if that is important to you.
    - There are a lot of social activities; networking is encouraged.
    - Kraft products sell themselves.
    - High pay

    Cons

    - Very few promotional opportunities; people/jobs have been downgraded for years and it will get worse.
    - Poor manager talent; managers can be good at managing projects, but very poor with people development.
    - Not looking for action-oriented people. Too much "discuss-decide-delay".
    - Some departments are way over staffed, some way under staffed.
    - Promotions are based on perceptions, and not usually on output.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders should start acting like owners; decisions don't seem to focus on what is best for Kraft the company. Too much empire building within departments.
