Pros

Competitive pay for my area. Good co workers on production level.

Cons

12 hour days. 72 one week 32 following week. Hard work with very stringent requirements for safety and quality.

Advice to Management

Start hiring mid level from in house. We understand more about tpm, e&t, and basic workings of the plant.

    A company as big as Nestle couldn't possibly promote this style of managment, could they?

    Pros

    Nestle offers some great courses for advancing your knowledge & skill set through their inter-company Nestle University.
    I came across some very good employees & people within the organization during my time there.

    Cons

    Senior management had military management mindset of command & control over their subordinates. They choose management by fear & used that method as their motivating tool. High turn over rate in the salary ranks.

    Advice to Management

    View and treat your employees as valuable contributors to the company & empower them rather than try to manage using fear of losing your job as a motivational tool.

    Pros

    Great internal website, good pay, good managers.

    Cons

    It was good until Nestle took over. Then the quality of employees declined, and they are way more interested in compliance than efficiency. It's a very white company, and they don't seem to give a fig about diversity. Also - with a tag line of "Nutrition, Health and Wellness" -- uhm... Hot Pockets? Really? Nutrition? Executives have their heads in the sand.

    Advice to Management

    Quite promotion just white men, and change your tag line to something honest "Crap food, but it's fun!"
