    I worked at Nestlé full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There was always something to be involved with and to make a difference. Ability to learn cross functional processes and procedures.

    Cons

    Regional locations had less chance for growth opportunities and for advancement. If you are willing to relocate, you can move into different roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to keep good employees no matter where they are in the organization and keep them challenged by project teams and organizations within the companies. Even good opportunities to move between the business units.
