    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You'll own as much spend/responsibility as an entire team at any other CPG - just understand why this is. You won't get much appreciation or respect, you'll work long hours that only earn you more hours, etc. If you go in with a specific understanding of what you need to get out of the experience from an education and skill development standpoint, you can accomplish years of personal progression in a very short time. Just know it will probably hurt like hell.

    Cons

    Fairly blatant misogyny and bullying runs rampant - it's old school, cutthroat and a totally different world. If you see through the BS and intimidation, you'll be fine. Let them play checkers - just play chess yourself.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great people from entry level to middle management. - Challenging because there is almost zero guidance from upper management - Opportunity to advance faster than a normal company but this can also lead to under qualified in critical positions

    Cons

    - Never a consistent direction. The company changes its whole approach 2-3 times a year and expects employees to redo work to fit the new need. - Lack of long term view. Always focused on just the year at hand and never the next year to 5 years. - Upper Management pretends to know everything and sets strategies without talking to middle or more junior positions. Majority of upper management is new to the company so clearly they lack any sort of historical information. - You are expected to work constantly. PTO at KHC stands of Part Time Off or that's how it feels. - Severely understaffed with extremely inexperienced workers. It is not uncommon for a buyer 1 year out of college to manage $200 million in spend annually. - All managers are working managers but given the lack of staffing there is very little time to train, coach and develop their team.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits. Opportunities for advancement as the organization tries to fill mid-level openings from within in an effort to slow turnover and promote meritocracy. Lean staffing creates the opportunity to learn a lot, to accomplish anything you must work beyond your job description, it may also mean working below your intellectual capacity simply because there is no one else.

    Cons

    Growth targets are unrealistic in the cost cutting environment of Kraft Heinz. Too much time is spent answering why the targets aren't being achieved versus determining what is needed to achieve them. Little real progress is made, creating a pressure cooker environment and high turnover as talented people become discouraged, or are pushed out the door if their views do not align with the that of their manager/executives.

    Good pay and decent health insurance

    Management is terrible all the way up to corporate, they don't care about the people just the bottom dollar even if it means making up false claims about employees so they can fire you even though the video shows you done nothing wrong
