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

    Pros

    MBOs provide clarity of targets and expectations; potential for big bonus and quick promotions

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours; constant fear of layoffs (I saw 3 in the first year after the merger between Kraft and Heinz); the business purposefully creates goals in some teams that conflict with others (i.e., between Supply Chain and the Commercial Business Units), with the intention that healthy conflict will drive the best business decision when in reality it only creates frustration and delays

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and put people in leadership roles who have experience

    The paycheck is pretty good.

    Everything else. Management is atrocious.

    I love working in Kraft Heinz, it has a meritocratic environment where you get the chance to work with very talented people.
