    I have been working at Heinz full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is not as bad as some of the reviews here would have you believe. It's not a great place to work, but neither is it a terrible place to work. Let's face it, we'd grown fat and complacent under Bill Johnson's leadership. 3G have shaken things up and in a lot of ways made things better. I admire some of the things they do, such as challenge costs constantly, rather than the boom and bust budget cycles we had previously. I've also met Bernardo twice in 12 months after working previously for 20 years without meeting Johnson, or any of his direct reports. I like the fact that the company is younger and more vibrant than it was. So, not all bad...

    Cons

    But.... there is more bad than good in this company. The "Boys From Brazil" seem to run their own form of apartheid in Heinz. If you're not under 35, Brazilian and worked previously for ALL there's little to no chance you'll be getting a senior role in Heinz. I am not sure how qualified someone is to be a Zone President when they've barely started shaving. However, it's the total lack of respect for individuals that makes this a poor place to work. You are only a number to 3G. Your skills, ability to perform your job, track record or loyalty are not valued. Experience has been replaced by cheap, naive graduates.

    Without doubt though, the worst thing 3G has brought to Heinz is the infamous "Battle Cry". Fist pumping and chanting "Let's Go Grow? Heinz!" has made us a laughing stock among our competitors. It's not even proper English. What on earth is it even supposed to mean? Henry Heinz will be rolling in his grave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's all become a bit "Animal Farm" really. We constantly hear how much better things now are under the new management, yet we all work longer, harder and in worse conditions for the same money.
