    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Incredibly knowledgeable workforce. Your coworkers will likely be incredibly intelligent, and passionate about what they do.
    -The projects that you can work on are varied and interesting.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance isn't great. You are often asked to work long hours, as well as over the weekends. This isn't ideal if you are salaried, because there is no opportunity for overtime. The day to day grind can leave you severely stressed with little outlook for relief anytime soon.

    Advice to Management

    Please promote a more positive work life balance. There's nothing worse than being in a position where you're dreading coming into the office the next day. The company culture needs to transition from "workhorse" to "work family".

    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are very knowledgable. Working on the Walmart account provides plenty of opportunity for upward movement both in Arkansas and in other locations in the US.

    Cons

    I've found it hard to find a really good mentor who is willing to take the time to train a new person. Everyone is so busy, and rightfully so, that they just don't have the time.

    Advice to Management

    The support staff needs equal attention and guidance that the CBL's receive.

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

    Pros

    I was given opportunities to evolve and grow. I worked on several projects and learned different software systems keeping the job fresh and challenging.

    Cons

    One of the cons working at Kraft Foods was that your boss was often not in contact with you or work on the same site as you. This caused for making it more difficult to show your skills and get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Have weekly discussions with employees to see if they are working on the right things and heading towards an exceeds for the year.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Culture/Atmosphere fun and rewarding place to work on daily basis.

    Cons

    Flat management structure means cut-throat promotion opportunities. Managers above you will only want to make themselves look good, will lie, cheat, or steal your thunder just to get themselves ahead, leave you for dead.

    Advice to Management

    Servant leadership, and try and consider fewer layoffs just to cut the budgets. Loyalty and quality of workers' output should also have a value count in the company.

    Pros

    Open work space, Autonomous and employee friendly environment. The company has strong history and very diverse work culture. Goals are clearly defined and everyone works as a team.

    Cons

    Being a big company, it has lot of people in the same level for lot of years. Difficult to grow up the chain because of stagnancy at one point

    Advice to Management

    If people are consistently performing above average ( 2-3 reviews), please identify them and work with them to ensure you have the talent pool interested in working at Kraft long term.
