    Pros

    Good benefits package, most people are team players, the employees are helpful with each other

    Cons

    Management and HR are not family friendly even when notified months in advance. Focus is only on company needs and not individual emergency situations. Don't plan on having a baby and taking a day off or communicating with your wife at work in lieu of taking off for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Become more family friendly. If you say you're going to work with a lead electrical technician then so so. Don't make him come in for work when his wife is in labor when you knew months in advance. Make adjustments for planned situations.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time

    Pros

    This review is for former Kraft before it merged with Heinz. It was one of the best companies I've ever worked for. Had a great diverse and inclusive culture!

    Cons

    It's not the same company any more. I have heard a lot of things have changed and are different now.

    Advice to Management

    To bring back the culture and feeling of the old Kraft. It was really amazing and a lot of people miss it. More work life balance
