Thread regarding Kraft Heinz layoffs

Kraft / Unilever Acquisition Layoffs 2017

Do you think there will be major layoffs due to Kraft / Unilever Acquisition? Sometimes in 2017? I am not even sure if this will be approved - we'll see what happens. I am thinking that there may be impact in few areas:

  • IT (once they merge systems, or some of them, there will be folks who are redundant, probably on both sides)

  • Human Resources (if they integrate operations, at least some folks will be let go, this may be big)

  • Finance (on the corporate level, it'll be a big hit, local folks may be ok, maybe no layoffs there)

  • Marketing (depends what they do from the brand side, definitely some wil be affected)

  • Legal (for redundant things, hits will happen, there is a lot of overlap here, heads will fly, pink slips. Kraft is heavy here, Unilever possibly too)

  • Any other back office jobs (I'll leave this to your imagination).

What are your thoughts?

Hmmm, it's not looking good for any of the business functions you listed above. Layoffs!
