    The best platform to learn and grow

    Management Trainee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe development plans are beyond of what you could have expected. The company and line managers are doing the right thing by offering learning opportunities that is possible according to your ability and strength to enable results to you in a very positive way.

    ConsThe office should be more modern as it could help the people to work in a very catchy and fun environment.

    Senior IT Delivery Manager, Champion of Continuous Excellence

    IT Delivery Manager (Current Employee)
    Solon, OH

    ProsAbility to define your own ways of contributing to the Company; good middle managment and senior leadership. Compensation at Nestle is a big plus - benchmarks compensation across Globe.

    ConsConsolidation of jobs and decision making to HQ locations and the leaders at these locations, less authority to remote sites, causing no major career growth for individuals in remote locations. Talent at various remote locations not recognized and groomed to the advantage and well-being of the Company. Inability to work cross-function, employee gets siloed into one area or another with minimal opportunities to play a liaison role. Very good internal training available but not encouraged due to siloed approach.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor Continuous Improvement and Continuous Excellence to work, Nestle should seriously consider more coaching and training of its employees and take care of their personal growth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stop The Intern "Flood"

    Team Leader (Current Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsStable company in regards to finances. Good benefits and decent work life balance.

    ConsAlmost 100% of promotions come from Interns. Employees with tenure are overlooked for promotion and jobs given to Interns hired for the fast track program. Nestle Purina is requiring BA degrees for all positions, even for sales reps who are basically merchandisers

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour Interns are NOT the only talent to promote from. Your Interns tend not to stay to long with this company after they get that promotion. The company wants their employees to compete and often climb on their fellow employees to get that promotion

    Part-time merchandiser responsible for stocking ice cream shelves.

    Merchandiser (Former Employee)

    ProsVery independent job your manager will tell you stores to every week and you drive to the store in your own car and stock the ice cream shelves without having to speak to really anyone. You pretty much get to set your own hours as long as all the stores are stocked with ice cream.

    ConsJob is sometimes more difficult than it needs to be because the food stores put the Nestle product all the way in the back of the freezer, so a lot of extra work that hurts your production.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My Nestle experience

    Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Glendale, CA

    Pros* Nestle shows a commitment to develop its employees
    * Flexible working schedule and ability to tele-commute
    * Friendly and intelligent people to work with
    * The company gym is a very convenient perk

    Cons* Nestle can sometimes have too much of a corporate feel
    * Being a big company, it is sometimes difficult to know everyone you work with.
