I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great people - real sense of support from co-workers; used to have lots of opportunities for learning/education - not sure if that will continue.

Cons

18 months ago there was a major "surprise" layoff which caused a dip in morale that we never really recovered from. Then, morale hit #2 with stress for months and months during the transition to new ownership. Co-workers jumped ship weekly until 600 more people were eliminated. People who remain will continue to live under the stress of uncertainty due to the new culture where you may never really feel "safe". Lots of talk from management around seeking "high performers" yet, they just eliminated several very high performers.

Advice to Management

Need to spend the next year re-building morale. It has been low for 2 years and could use some real boosting. Don't assume that just great paychecks will be enough. You need to celebrate your people publicly and often. Also, please avoid cliche platitudes about moving on to a new era and how exciting it is for the "new Heinz". Be real and recognize that your current employees have lost some dear friends. I encourage you to do some real team building exercises to create trust with the new team.
