    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn and grow your career if you are willing to work hard - and if you are resilient. Great People - supportive and willing to help you navigate.

    Cons

    Alot of change, so you have to be willing to keep a great attitude and operate within a fair amount of ambiguity.

    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The salary is competitive if you speak up and demand to be paid equal to your peers. Kraft is infamous for its "Meritocracy" culture which essentially means promoted to a higher position but paid less than what that position is typically paid. There are still great people here which is what has kept me here. Great brands as well.

    Cons

    The SLT talks a big game regarding change and employee wellness but ultimately falls short. The expectations from a bonus perspective are unrealistic. 50% bonus targets, but what management doesn't tell you is that is multiplied by how the total company does, so i have made 100% of my personal bonus, which will be multiplied by a 30% and ultimate will get a regular sized bonus. The workload expected does not warrant average bonuses. Employees are shamed if they leave before 6pm. Health and Wellness isn't actually a concern despite the weekly emails from HR reminding us to de-stress. What would help employees de-stress is a culture that discourages managers to cancel employees Dr appts, workout classes, put on 7am regular meetings.

    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Great people (up to a certain level) -Solid retirement benefits -good bonus (if the company hits targets) -ability to try out different roles

    Cons

    - Awful leadership - a lot of bad people managers - Possibly the most incompetent HR staff in the industry - constant turnover - company chooses to prioritize getting new employees rather than retention of current talent - lack of proper training/development - bare bones workspace - lack of diversity (ESPECIALLY in leadership), and it shows - clear favoritism (especially towards Brazilians or 3G partners) -politics/toxic environment - lack of resources - monitors, keyboards, some people don’t even have seats. It’s insane around here. Like others have mentioned, it’s difficult to get anything around here until someone leaves, but that happens often enough that some people don’t see it as an issue
