    I worked at Wrigley full-time

    Pros

    Wrigley offered a great work life balance, awesome culture, motivated team. Compensation in the industry was high. Company invested in its employees with training, etc.

    Cons

    Several re-orgs started to change the culture. Fewer resources meant increased workload for those remaining.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring high potential workers and adding incremental headcount - they will deliver and be worth the investment so as not to lose the hard working current associates.

    I worked at Wrigley full-time

    Pros

    Some other functions are actually well managed and competent

    Cons

    I will only comment on the supply chain team has been decimated by years of extremely poor leadership, a lack of accountability and an environment where office bullying is encouraged. Most of the senior leadership responsible for shaping the culture have been pushed out, but it will be some time (if ever) before a team this badly demoralized can feel good again about where they work. Nearly all of the strong talent that made this organization great left years ago and much of what remains is just backstabbing and excuses for why they can't make their objectives.

    Advice to Management

    It's really too late for advice.
