    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a fast-paced place to work, with a strong sense of ownership and responsibility given to all employees. You are trusted with your opinions and given the opportunity to make palpable impact. Reward is given where it is due and career-progression is based on merit. The team and the office make it enjoyable to come into work everyday.

    Cons

    Hours can be intense, but always fluctuate and you are still able to maintain a good work life balance.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great to laugh at the circus until you realise you, your career and integrity are very much part of the circus

    Cons

    Where to start: - casually breaking the law on the daily basis when it comes to basic accounting standards, employment law, immigration law and environmental law - management helicoptered in from obscure places from failed careers propped up by their Private Equity buddies who know nothing about running a business let alone in ANZ - hard coded and doctored performance numbers which tie to nothing discussed religiously with zero execution or tangible action - terrified management who have no integrity or courage to stick up for teams with over 20+ years experience - a bullying culture in some places - bonuses that have not been paid in 2 years - a finance team bigger than the sales team or even factory leadership team - constant management team changes - 20 somethings put in leadership roles and given huge titles but spend their day looking at spreadsheets, dealing with GBS, punching numbers into BPCS version 1992 with zero capability to think strategically or develop teams as their role in a normal company would suggesy

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Quick learning More responsibility and decision making power (sometimes) than average FMCG employee at the same level Sense of ownership for project

    Cons

    Leadership changes vision and almost every quarter Constant restructures Leadership thinks only short term (6 months) Leadership lacks Australian or FMCG experience Dictatorship style of leadership kills owner spirit in employees Mid level management is not empowered or gutsy enough to challenge leadership Power play is so obvious and demoralizing that it kills employee morale

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You may get some of their products on a discount if you know who to ask.

    Cons

    Expectations are always beyond remuneration. Long working hours. Senior Managers don't have clear direction but only live day to day falsely presenting the true performance of site.
