Current Employee - Quality Assurance Technician in Wigan, England

I have been working at Heinz full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great people and brands. An opportunity to work with people who passionately believe in the quality and integrity of their products.

Cons

Expectations are set high - and you may find that the bar has been raised while you were playing the game.
Even though Heinz may be in the top 5% of food companies, expect rewards package to be middle of the road, or slightly less.

    Pros

    Strong process and systems in place
    Great people
    Strong brands and good enough support functions

    Cons

    Many many meetings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't always try to save a quick buck (staffing/salaries)
    Address employee investment imbalances (HR initiatives/SG&A)
    Win with a bang - not another take away pizza

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in London, England
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in London, England

    I worked at Heinz full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brands
    Great people
    Great commercial attitude

    Cons

    Schizophrenic attitude were departments are played off against one another - doubling the workload
    Lack of long term strategy: explaining daily sales variances rather than planning for success
    Macho culture: work long hours, what are weekends? holidays are for wimps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a stronger inspiring strategy
    Sustainable profitable growth is a "catch all" but means nothing at the same time
    Its a long journey to make working at Heinz as great a feeling as consuming their products
