I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Heinz NA is not for me. I guess some people can handle the robotic grind but I cannot. Not many people here have many years so that should speak for itself.

Cons

Cons: culture, work life balance, no social life, senior management, Sales Board, human resources, no diversity, Heinz does not care about employees, no incentives, no pension, Pittsburgh HQ sucks, female glass ceiling, benefits

    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is very well recognized by many as a leader in quality foods. The supervisors work very well with others to ensure their safety and that the best product is sold.

    Cons

    There are times when employee hours are very scarce. The expectation of employees is that they will have 40 hours as full-time workers. However, the company frequently changes the employee schedule without sufficient notice

    Advice to Management

    Production assembly is not an easy task. Although it doesn't take a high IQ, it would be wonderful if management remembered that we are valued members who have vested interest in the success of this company.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great well known brands that span across multiple aisles in the grocery store

    Cons

    HQ is extremely political and run by cliques and a good ol boy network called sales board. Perceptions are made both good and bad very quickly and once senior management has that perception it's virtually impossible to change perceptions. Surprisingly for the size of Heinz and great brands there is a tremendous lack of coaching and development of their employees. It's a sink or swim mentality. Heinz wants you to already have the skill set they are looking for and have no room or patience to train someone new in role. Heinz has no compassion or empathy for their employees and use them for the sole purpose of the end result. Once they have squeezed everything they need or want from you they discard you like a piece of garbage. I was blatenly lied to by a member of sales board Worst decision of my career that I am still paying for today

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers how to lead, inspire, and motivate their employees. It's not always about the end result but sometimes the journey of helping someone grow in their role.
