    Pros

    Kraft Heinz is still going through it's transition, but if you are looking for a company where you can dig in and learn a lot, this is the right place for you! I work in the meat industry where the business is ever changing and most materials have a very short shelf life. From a Manufacturing perspective, you will learn a lot about lean manufacturing and analytical problem solving.

    Cons

    You must be a self starter and contain excellent communication skills. As many of the employees are non-veteran, you will need to take the initiative to reach out to find subject matter experts and not be shy about asking questions and solving problems.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more mentoring of employees. Also, more emphasis on work life balance.

    Pros

    Decent money. Nothing else good about it.

    Cons

    High turn around, low morale, no supervision, management is lost, no direction. Ever since Heinz took over this place has gone downhill. They cut, cut, cut to the bone, then wonder why there aren't enough people to run the place efficiently. Supervisors know little to nothing about the goings on out on the floor. They are constantly shuffled from shift to shift and are never engaged with their people. Lackadaisical attitude towards everything. "I don't know how to do that, the next shift will get it, etc" No ownership. If an operator makes a mistake or screws up they are disciplined with a swift and heavy hand. If you are anything above a floor operator you have a huge target on your back. You never know if your job will be eliminated from day to the next. One positive I guess is that when they eliminate jobs (which they do alot) the job goes away, not the employee. They just say you are doing this job now. Like it or leave basically. If you are not a machine operator and are close to retirement you might as well pack your bags because your going to be done soon. They cut out all OT but now can't sustain production because of lack of people. Temporary service provides (mostly) good employees but they make a fraction of what a full timer makes doing the same job.

    Advice to Management

    None. They won't listen anyway. They are merely puppets that are controlled by corporate back east somewhere.

    You are able to get promoted quickly with big titles due to high turnover , downtown location in Chicago, Illinois

    Properly staff teams and take time to develop your employees. Also make sure to respect employees.
