Director of Business Development (Former Employee) says"Title says it all. Once purchased by heinz it was all over. They are evil and cut-throat and think money alone motivates. You have to be brazilian and hate your family to succeed there.NoneEverything"
Director, Dairy Commodity Risk Management (Former Employee) says"Environment at the end was extremely unstable with a great deal of turnover. The cultural shift brought by 3G Partners may work for them in the long run, but alienated and displaced much of the institutional knowledge that can be helpful. The enthusiasm and decisive posture of the new leadership was exciting and they weren't afraid to make changes."
Operator (Former Employee) says"Everything’s a trap, from what you say to what you do. They’re always looking to hinder you. They said you’ll get a bonus if we hit our numbers, bonus time came around and all we heard was excuses and no bonus, even though numbers were exceeded. Sick days were basically taken away by that I mean, you could use them but it might cost you either by losing your job or not being able to advance in the company. The HR department isn’t there for you, they’re there to back up management and corporate. You are quickly labeled a liar if you question them. The overtime expected is outrageous in a 5 to 6 day work week you are expected to work up to 4 days of overtime meaning 4 12 hr days. So not much work life balance if you like to sleep at all.A paycheck and healthcareHr, sick time not available for those with a family without penalty, undervalued as an employee- you are disposable, overtime expectations are crippling"

Order Management CSR/DSD Samples Processor (Former Employee) says"Kraft foods was a challenging work environment. I gained a lot of experience with customers and SAP erp systems. Our management team was hands off and allowed the employees to manage their customers and issues. We worked in teams and there was a lot of cooperation with coworkers. The hardes part of the job was the long hours that were required to meet the demands with the lower head count demanded by the company. I will miss the people I worked with. We were able to get along outside of work as well as in work.Self Managed environmentLong work hours and lack of head count"

Senior Brand Manager (Former Employee) says"Great general management training, iconic brands, a lot of responsibility early on"
Finance Manager (Current Employee) says"The current culture at Kraft is that they want to bring in new talent and get rid of people who have been there awhile.
