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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Close to home, relatively updated location, company store, cafeteria, health club, looks and sounds pretty.

    Cons

    Not as progressive as I would have thought a leading food company would be. Need to understand the phrase"state of the art" before using it to describe your facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about the future. We all have a salary to work for, and not just a bonus. Need to keep up with the times and pay employees competitively. Too many inexperienced employees, and incompetent managment.
