Headquarters was not fun and did beat you down over time. Good people in the department, but the mood was very negative. Very much a top down driven environment.

Company went downhill after merger with Heinz. Was asked to do unethical things to jeopardize the relationships I had spent years building. Company is more focused towards younger generation to save in salary for more experienced professionals

Kraft Heinz changed to culture for the worse. I planned to make a career here but once they were bought everything changed. Massive layoffs and complete culture change. It wasn't for me.

Kraft was a very fun and prestigious place to work. People on the customer teams were proud of the company they worked for and worked hard for the company. The leadership showed that they cared and looked out for you. That all changed when the company wanted to look better for investors and started cutting cost too far. The culture and atmosphere changed and good people started to leave. Ultimately the 3G merger killed this company, they closed many offices, cut trade spending and the brands have suffered.

Corporate culture is focused on reducing Overhead. Travel is limited and employees are required to share hotel rooms. Work space is open concept, with employees at all levels working in one large work space.

I worked at Kraft from 1998-2012... that version of the company is long gone and any review I can provide will be about an extinct organization (that I found to generally lack culture and relevant brands)

Prior to the merge, Kraft Foods was a great place to work. They had a family feel and had a great family work life balance. Benefits were awesome and if my position was not eliminated, I would still be there!

3G has made too many changes to quickly and have lost focus on the customer and employees. Kraft Foods was a great organization I was proud to work for but focus from sales/customer to finance has not been a good one.

Kraft and the people there were very good to me. I enjoyed the the people I worked with. The administrative work makes it hard to have time to sell and hard to have good work life balance. Expect to be a jack of all trades, master of none.
Pros
Decent salary
Cons
Check ins and trackers galore

During my time at Kraft I was given the opportunities to build the solid foundation needed to manage businesses. Learning the daily tasks and details that go into the over all picture provided me with an understanding of what I was asking the team to take on in my future roles.

The Kraft Foods Group: 1.) A Perfect Organization for those seeking weak leadership and a culture that rewards Process Improvement above Results. 2.) RISK ADVERSE Culture 3.) Antiquated Brands lacking manufacturing Agility 4.) Below Average Talent, Significantly below P&G, ConAgra, & Unilever. Compensation: below industry averages, Expectations: unrealistic. Leadership: Senior managers: A Weak Group. Underpaid & held to unrealistic expectations. Mid Managers: Low 6-figure salary's for 80 hour weeks... should not be a surprise the talent is below average. Maybe pay them what they're worth & the talent will be retained? Organizational Culture: Results at Kraft are not rewarded, Risk is highly discouraged.
Pros
Tremendous amount of trade dollars to drive the business...or save for a rainy day.
Cons
Compensation, Risk Adverse Culture, Weak Leadership, Affirmative Action quotas, Process valued above Results
