    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time

    Pros

    Good pay , lots of room for growth

    Cons

    Maintenance management has your back , But the job is very stressful and production will always be in your way and production will never have your back or help you out . It's a very stressful environment, It's not fair if you work hard while others are not helping standing around with hands in there pockets.

    Advice to Management

    You need to stop having meetings and start putting your better maintenance employees first and tell production to move out of the way .

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

    Pros

    The pay is good and there are still some people left from the old Kraft Foods

    Cons

    The merger completely killed the culture of a great CPG company

    Advice to Management

    Don't say your employees are "family" when they are treated like minions. Stop running the place like an investment bank, it's not, nor is it meant to be.

    Pros

    Constant change leads to open positions. Company Car. Decent benefits. Promoting employees that believe in the ZBB model and preach it. Other than that, nothing.

    Cons

    Common theme here... ZBB is great for the investors but poor for employee morale. You're treated as a number and not a person. Analysts and upper management will push systems and models on to you that make absolutely no sense at store level. They will deflect any input on improving them because they've already invested millions of dollars before meaningful research. Very aggressive sales techniques and bonus structures that reflect poorly on the Kraft Heinz brands being shoved into stores when the amounts/cases aren't wanted or needed. Weekly threats of termination if results aren't there. Many Brazilians because of 3G are top executives and because of very broken English difficult to understand.

    Advice to Management

    Begin treating employees as human beings and they will maintain loyalty, keep treating them as robots and the brand will eventually crumble to pieces.

    Pros

    learning potential due to complexity of work environment is great

    Cons

    this company is more for the company than their employees. value of employee is not taken into with high regard.

    Advice to Management

    expectation of loyalty from employees should be matched by the company. employees should not feel disposable by action taken company wide

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

    Pros

    Rotational program was pretty good. There are lots to learn, and you will be exposed to all functions within Kraft Heinz.

    Cons

    The HR doesn't really communicate with you. Most are closed door processes and you will often be surprised to what you will get on the rotations. Many within the program tried to communicate with the HR so that they can receive clearer view about their destinations, but most efforts resulted to be futile.

    They make lots of promises, but it is here where I learned not to trust anything that's not written down on the contract. Again and again, they will go back and pretend they never made any promises.

    Favoritism plays a big part here. Once you get on the good side, you can do almost anything and not get fired. If you are not on the good side, well... good luck.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more communication between the HR and the trainees/employees as "surveys" are not enough to fully encapsulate what the employees want. There is a reason why there is such a high turnover rate.
