    I worked at Heinz full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ethics and Value
    Colleagues and products are great
    Very young culture, not a good fit for everyone though
    Good place to star your career

    Cons

    I am been worked in this company for last 5 years, I have seen the best of this company and now the worst side.No Work life Balance or Monetary Benefit, No more good skill people in the system. The company is totally out of track and there is no proper leadership or goal to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start focusing on motivating people and give proper Work Life balance. Treat employee as people and not just expense Otherwise more and more people will leave the company just as it´s happening right now.

    I worked at Heinz full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I'm a former employee based on the 3G takeover. I loved working at Heinz prior to that time. It was an amazing company with great colleagues, decent benefits, good salary and bonus structure and lots of freedom to do good work. The 3G takeover was a sad day in the long and great history of Heinz based on what I saw transpire and what I've heard from colleagues who stayed after I left. Read the other reviews carefully as much of the discussion on the poor practices are TRUE. Buyer Beware....

    Cons

    Too many to discuss here-- the work-life balance went out the window. Friends have told me people are required to work late in to the evening; even week ends for R&D. Crazy!! We all worked hard but there's a limit to what is reasonable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the other Glassdoor comments and hold the mirror up to yourself and the leadership team. The picture isn't pretty!

    I worked at Heinz full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    At this point most people still believe Heinz to be an all American company.

    Cons

    Miserable place to work. Moral is lower than anywhere I have ever worked. Most everyone is watching their back or doesn't know enough to realize it.
    Heinz is not even close to what this company was just a couple of short years ago when it really did care about employees and doing the right things for their customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell to someone that understands what Heinz was and willing to bring at least some of the integrity back.
