    Needed help before 3G, but 3G made it worse

    Pros

    a lot of great people to work with, camaraderie many great brands and products nice office

    Cons

    nepotism among the Brazilians and 3G finance people merger purchase made the company over leveraged zero based budgeting meant fighting for necessities - for example a hundred dollar training for a new hire to replace the headcount that was cut constant headcount cuts difficult expectations and workload resulted in a revolving door of talent they got rid of annual merit reviews and turned it into a clandestine process most benefits eroded over the years I worked there management by objectives (MBO) was a big carrot and bigger stick - huge bonuses that could be wiped out by poor sales or EBITA meant you could go the whole year performing well to receive nothing; MBO structure created infighting and promoted number manipulation, a large factor likely which lead to the SEC investigation lack of innovation and reinvestment due to cost cutting focus, other CPGs were busy growing their brand and consumer base in better/fresher options, Kraft Heinz was busy mixing ketchup with mayonnaise. Other large CPG food companies's stock has grown steadily over past five years. General lack of strategic focus, too many initiatives that changed too frequently in order to distract from poor results

    Struggling Business,Unappreciated and No Work Life Balance

    Pros

    Great people AON Center is a beautiful location Fun events in office occasionally Great bonus opportunity (if business ever hits required KPI’s which is rare)

    Cons

    -Business is selling off brands to pay of debt, constant layoffs and business reports -No work life balance, people will try to message you via teams at insane hours of the night. PTO is a joke as the company culture expects you to be present -compay turnover is unreal, there will never be a time where you will do your job and your job alone -Merit is a joke and highly under the radar. Expect a 3% merit after a couple of years to make up for cost of living. This is only given out to a slim amount of employees - Undervalued from Leadership - Reported racial discrimination to HR and nothing was done. That employee left the company due to that -Men were widely known to make more than women employees -HR is a joke at khc and did nothing to solve any of the above issues
