Pros

Kraft foods offers good salary levels and great benefits, a supportive work environment, and some great opportunity for advancement. They give you a company car with all expenses paid, and the opportunity to win trips and other things for acheiving sales goals. Good bonus plan and reachable sales goals. Good equipment and data to help with sales presentations. Great people to work with and a good, positive work environment. Kraft is a solid company and the food business is somewhat recession proof.

Cons

Not as many opportunities unless you are able to relocate. Salaries do not get really high although you can make a good living working for kraft.

Advice to Management

Provide state of the art sales marterials to the sales staff, provide latest information gathering systems to sales staff. Continue to develop healthy foods across all categories to remain competetive.

    Pros

    Kraft employees are typically unafraid to give without necessarily receiving. There is a spirit of helpfulness found in most corporate offices & plants; a willingness to lend time, talent & muscle to do the right thing, get the job done, & do it well, with satisfaction ... sure, there are employees who camp out, angle for the next rung of another ladder, & spend a great deal of effort looking for clever ways to avoid work; but the significant majority work smart, work harder, work beyond their pay-grade, and work well with folks at all levels of the food chain.

    Cons

    The flavor of the month syndrome, & what often appears to be change for the sake of change. Seems it's not unique to Kraft since it's the same song I hear from colleagues in other businesses ... We do seem to sift through the migrant executive detritus & scoop up the occasional senior V.P. with loads of credentials but little substance. Perhaps the real downside to working for Kraft ... there just aren't enough highly compensated positions for all of us who deserve to be highly compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Choose outperform over outsource. And to the board ... stay the course with Irene, apparently she was, indeed, the right choice the first time ... and don't ever consider dual (dueling) executives again. Where were the board members with enough guts to shoot that suggestion down? We're still correcting the course from that disaster.
