    I worked at Heinz full-time

    Pros

    Now, there are very few. There were some very talented people, who were excellent to work with. However due to 3G's ownership most have left - either through resignation or redundancy.

    Cons

    To start off I must declare I have recently left Heinz (voluntarily). I was never planning to write a review on here, but after hearing of more redundancies today I feel obliged to warn my fellow FMCG colleagues in Melbourne before they consider applying for a job at Heinz (although I would say its common industry knowledge anyhow).

    My watch outs:

    1. The initial round of cost cutting post the 3G buyout was probably justifiable, but the second round is mind-boggling. To the point where I can't fathom how anyone can do their jobs there... Unless they are prepared to work 18 hours a day... However that suits the 3G philosophy. To give you an idea Heinz used to fill 2 and a half floors in Freshwater Place - now it could easily fit into 3/4 of one floor.

    2. The new Senior Management have no Australian experience - the new MD no FMCG experience (investment banker). Not a major issue in itself but then why would you make redundant all your experienced senior staff? It's headless chicken stuff.... There is a MAJOR knowledge gap now.

    3. There is no culture in the place. None....

    4. My team was brought into a room two months ago to be told there was to be no more restructuring after the Senior Exec team were cut. However that has proven to be a massive lie. End result = zero trust in senior management.

    5. The Grad recruitment drive.... Apparently 25 are starting early next year, however I have no idea who will mentor/train them. Rumour is that's why there's a recruitment freeze - the grads will fill the void. My advice to graduates thinking about joining... You need a stable environment to develop into your careers - not to be thrown into the deep end with no one to turn to.

    There are some other minor ones such as having zero benefits - even the staff shop disappeared never to return. End of the day people at Heinz are a cost on the balance sheet - not an asset, and that's the main reason I left....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are plenty of other alternatives to working at Heinz in Melbourne... You'll need someone to help shift those boxes...
