Cadbury Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Cadbury, formerly Cadbury's and Cadbury Schweppes, is a British multinational confectionery company wholly owned by Mondelez International (originally Kraft Foods) since 2010. It is the second largest confectionery brand in the world after Mars. Cadbury is internationally headquartered in Uxbridge, west London, and operates in more than 50 countries worldwide. It is known for its Dairy Milk chocolate.
Ian shared in a review "We don't think we would buy a Cadbury product again. The chocolate is just awful, Wispas, Dairy Milk, Fruit and Nut etc the whole range. It's not the same taste anymore, tasteless . Management have ruined this, bring old recipe back!!"
Former Employee - Retail Sales Assistant says"If you are unlucky enough to be working in the Cadbury World gift shop, you will be bullied and made to feel bad, just for turning up. The shop badly needs a bully box. I am lucky that I am thick skinned, but younger timid members of staff were made to feel very bad. I am not permitted to describe the offending individual. You will work really hard on the shop floor while the management sit in the office stuffing their faces with chocolate. They will occasionally leave the safety of the office to moan that you are not working hard enough. While you are working hard during peak periods, the team leaders will spend five hours setting up a display. A job that takes about thirty minutes for able people to complete, will take an entire shift. The staff canteen sells very uninteresting food, terrible coffee and the canteen staff are very slow at serving you. Also you are only given thirty minutes to have your food, luckily then the canteen takes five minutes to get to up very steep stairs. The atmosphere in the canteen between the shop workers and the exhibition team is very tense, each department seems to be very wary of each other. The exhibition is pretty rubbish. And customers will complain to you about it. Since the exhibition omitted the 'factory' side of 'Bournville Chocolate Factory' the site could really be overhauled. Customers complain that the attraction no longer involves a 'factory tour'."
Current Employee - Product Manager says"Fierce hire and fire. Many people I see joining don't make it thought probation and aren't spoken about again. There are several taboo topics. The management culture is "old school". People don't get trained. Every document needs to be approved by the manager. As somekne who wants to advance in their career, this company is a cul-de-sac. Mistakes are generally not tolerated and people prefer to criticise change harshly than to consider it. Those that play the polotics game and are liked by the boss get promoted - maybe a common thing, but when completely incompetent people with next to no experience or drive get the promotion you start soubting if this is a workplace or a schoolyard. Look for a career elsewhere"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"All the good will was lost with the hostile takeover by Kraftfoods"
Former Employee - Graphic Designer says"Culture not good - people out for themselves and willing to step on others to get there."
Former Employee - Assistant Brand Manager says"Mondelez International feels like it has become a faceless business where you are simply a cog in a machine"
Project Manager says"mangement is scary fo decisons and repsonsibility is pushed downa wards from the top. Lower work force is not aligned with mangement and the sam is not acceped as s aproblem resulting in every one downg the job 2-03 levels below and hence vaccum in liong term strategy. Decsions are adhoc and unplanned. Most importantly every one does the job of other person and takes pride rather than doing their own."
Current Employee - Sales Executive says"our incentives is not coming time"
Former Employee - Technical Executive says"low salary and more over same salary to both UG and PG graduated employees. no office for technical executives immediate decisions regarding office meeting without prior intimations to the executives.

Shop Assistant (Current Employee) says"working at Cadbury Chocolate was very bad for my well being, I thought that working there would be a very good experience, but my first few days on the job were more than underwhelming. The management was sort of poor because they just expected you to know what you were doing. any time I asked for assistance I was turned down after being glared at. The short amount of ours got me by and I wasn't struggling by any means but I wanted to be able to have some more money to spend on myself. I have been experiencing difficulty finding a new job so I'm stuck in this position for now. The short hours mean I'm always on call and whenever I get a shift I have very little notice.15% off chocolate at the front storeShort hours. Not as much pay as i was hoping for, in fact, much to little amounts."

Confectioner (Former Employee) says"Long hours, standing long period of time. Uniform was supplied. Had kick start meetings before you start, which was helpful. I mainly done nights shifts."
process worker (Former Employee) says"Seemed like a decent place to work, but I didn't stick around too long as you're expected to be On-Call at a minutes notice to work night-shift. I'm happy to work night shift, but you need some notice! Also, they say 'show you're a hard worker and you'll get more shifts'. I worked my butt off and still remained on-call. I hated that; Not knowing if you're working at all that week. It's hard to get into a routine when you're expected to work nightshift, but aren't warned in advance. I won't ever commit to an on-call role again, that's for sure. You end up wasting your days hoping the phone will ring.Great pay when you're working nights!Not enough hours, being on-call without ANY rostered shifts."

Senior Buyer (Former Employee) says"Restructuring allow the company to work in a more global consolidated manner, means more unemployment for South Africa. Prior to the Kraft Buyout of Cadbury globally in 2010, Cadbury was very much a family orientated business with many family values. This was a place you wanted to work and took great pride in telling people where you worked. Since Kraft acquired the company globally this changed and everything in the organisation became very aggressively performance driven along with constant lead by fear as the order of the day. Retrenchments have been ongoing since 2012. In saying the above the company did afford me the opportunity to develop myself, allowing me to study, to travel frequently overseas and attend conferences and workshops.Bonus, Free chocolatesLots of traveling"
