    Pros

    Truly supportive management who deliver on their people agenda. There are not many global organisations whom have the same family/personal feel as KF do. As is expected within the FMCG sector, the work is varied and interesting, which certainly keeps us on our toes and allows for a more varied work. Great range of team activities which allow one to feel more involved with colleagues from other departments.... Fantastic growth and development opportunities for those who take the chance. One of the key contributors to this benefit is the fact that exposure to senior figures within the company is actively encouraged, thereby allowing one to network, and also seek golden nuggets of advice. Again, as aforementioned, a warm, and supportive family feel within the organisation which makes for a truly supportive environment within which to grow.

    Cons

    One does wonder if this family feel will be sustainable, especially as the organisation grows, and is faced by external competitive pressures. I for one am glad that the organisation is still seen as a benchmark for nurturing its workforce, which it’s competitoors couldntake note from

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the good work, your people agenda is what helps us in the tough times.

    I have been working at Kerry Foods full-time

    Pros

    People focussed - you can trust the business will look after it's people whenever possible. Not too tied into process yet to react to changing trends for the future. Great people. Willingness to offer work flexibility if the manager agrees.

    Cons

    As Kerry transitions to becoming a 'big' business the culture is gradually changing. Restructures are becoming more normal, process is starting to tie down individuals and team and reduce market reactiveness.
