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

    Pros

    Good benefits. You get a vehicle. Good 401k match and signing bonus.

    Cons

    Even though you get a vehicle, you still have to pay monthly a fee.
    They promise that if you do well that you will be promoted. This is not true by any means because if you aren't willing to move, you will be stuck in this position. They advertise the job as a sales job where you are just a glorified merchandiser. Communication between management and you is terrible. You are an expendable asset. If you looking to be a merchandiser this is the job for you. If your looking to grow as a salesman, look somewhere else.
    They promise the world to you and give you an unincorporated town or village.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over promise. Stay connected with everyone not just your favorites.

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

    Pros

    Decent salary/copensation, can learn good business disciplines, any job will keep one busy, great at squeezing capital out of the operations

    Cons

    not trustworthy, sub par management skills, quite a toxic environment promoted even by high levels in the organization, dangling carrots tactics in all performance programs and mushroom treatment is prevalent

    Advice to Management

    engage in character ethics, abandon the personality ethics: no sense at promoting values that can't support, keep an eye on the "food" you make

    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A few of long time hard working employees still left. Besides that, none!

    Cons

    Lack of organizational knowledge. Lack of common sense. No communication between management and production; cost cutting is the main focus of the management, even if it means robbing off their own employees(the latest move was to reduce employees' allowance for safety wear by 50% - they still go by the slogan "Safety first!", which is totally ironic ). Training of the new hires/temporary employees is non-existent. Quantity is what matters the most, regardless of product quality- liquidating a bad product on a regular bases. Sanitation crew is cut so severely, mold started popping up in corners and it takes weeks to have someone actually clean it. Management is totally disconnected from production and show no interest in employees' skills which brings high turn over of production workers. A total chaos!

    Advice to Management

    Please, go away!

    Pros

    There are good people at plants, who want the best for the company.
    Spend money if you can show return.

    Cons

    Supervisors/Managers not treated with respect.
    No good structure /consistent policy
    No culture of teamwork, employee engagement.
    Too focused on numbers, not where the numbers come from.
    Employees not willing to change to keep up with the times.
    No long term planning. It's all about the quarter you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your supervisors with respect and maybe they'll get more out of hourlies.
    Put some time into training. Corporate does nothing to fix problems, then they're surprised when they come back.
    I never heard an HR manager question if we should provide leadership training, especially when there leadership issues.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are male, under 30, ambitious, unscrupulous and don't care you are doing/managing or directing something you do not understand and you are willing to give up your personal life, you will thrive here

    Cons

    If you are not male, over 30, scrupulous and care and you are not willing to give up 100% of your personal life, you will shrivel here

    Advice to Management

    What works at a medium sized company (counting sheets of paper used), does not work at a large company. Listening to your experienced workforce, instead of getting rid of them, might pay off on the long run.

    Pros

    Global company
    Location
    Mobility
    Maybe co-workers? Just maybe, since it really depends which team/department you'll be in

    Cons

    Minimum 12+ hours/6 days a week
    "Managers" (there's no leaders here) aren't ready for their roles
    You'll be thrown into chaos with an expectation that you can manage to go above/beyond, without any sort of training

    Advice to Management

    None to management. If you're considering to work here, be WARNED. This place will ruin you.
