    I worked at Oscar Mayer Limited full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was very impressed with Oscar Mayer's training program as well as continued training after starting the job. Their office place communication methods were always very thorough.

    Cons

    The company has more of a vertical structure which can make for more red tape when trying to contact certain people.


  2. "Kraft Heinz is closing this plant. The Madison, WI plant is closing April 2017"

    I worked at Oscar Mayer Limited full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None - Kraft Heinz is closing this plant. How do you expect someone to give a good review of this company when they are closing a 100 year old workplace, hurting the economic welfare of the community, not to mention all the workers losing their jobs.

    Cons

    The biggest con is that Kraft Heinz is closing this plant. Putting thousands of workers out of a job.

    Advice to Management

    What kind of advice do you give management who have no qualms of shutting down a facility that has been an integral part of a community for nearly a century? They don't care, its all bottom line. Fatten their pockets and take away from the little guy.

    Pros

    This job was really fun! Oscar Mayer provides great benefits, and this job come with lots of travel, which was a big plus for me.

    Cons

    Since it's an old company, some of the rules and regulations are antiquated. Oscar Mayer has had recent changes in ownership from Kraft to Heinz, so my experience might now be out of date.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible with Brand Ambassadors.

    Pros

    easy work environment......good benifits....social environment is workable.....leadership on the entry level is good.

    Cons

    policies and procedures cookie cutter not case by case basis.....advancement based on who you are friends with in the upper rank of management not on dependability, education, skills etc.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your policies and handle them on a case by case basis instead of using a blanket policy to cover all events that happens to the employee. Base advancement on not who is the favored employee but who is best suited for the fob I. E. the one who has the experience and the knowledge should be the one getting the promotion .
