    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

    High salaries, big bonuses if company does well, great location, fast promotions of you're willing to work 12-14 hour days.

    Cons

    This place is an absolute sweat shop with no sense of prioritization and no respect for the employees. They draw you in with big money and "meritocracy" but mislead you on how terrible the culture really is. The honeymoon period lasts about 3 months if you're lucky enough to work on some cool products, but quickly wears off when you realize you're doing the workload of a 5-person role with half the resources. Please read the reviews before taking a job here and don't get caught up in the big salaries - trust me, it's not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to train and develop new employees. If you're goal is highest profitability, you need motivated and happy employees to get you there.
