Horrible Place to Work

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Nestlé Waters North America

Pros

Competitive pay and nice bonus if you're at a mangers level or higher

Cons

I left the company on my own terms so I want whoever is reading this to know that so they don't think I'm a bitter person that was fired this is the honest truth from a person that was there in management...... First off HORRIBLE middle management, no work life balance at all. Was being publicly bullied and harassed for over a year and HR did absolutely nothing about it at all. They talk ALOT about "the Nestle leadership model". but do nothing to ensure their leaders live up to the standards they put forth. I'm tough, but constant badgering and unrealistic expectations with have you burnt out and beat down quickly. They're hiring model is to hire A-type personalities only and have the reporting structure set up in such a way that you are purposely reporting to someone that is a conflict of interest to your area. ( taught to me in their HR training) This makes for constant arguing and battles with other leaders all the time. If you want to be seen as only a number, get paid horribly compared to the amount of hours required, want constant productively/performance reviews in which it's open season on what they say to you, and love to fight to keep your job 2 or more times per year.... this is the place to work! All jokes aside Very seriously think twice the money looks tempting, but you will regret it. Don't put your family through what I did. There are too many companies hiring all the time in manufacturing to deal with unnecessary craziness.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're losing amazing leaders, future leaders, and employees. You have to start double checking HRs programs and policies. They're losing sight of their role and helping the wrong people stay out of trouble. Not everything is defined by law some things are just good ole common sense and doing the right thing. Rapid firing, burning people out, and unrealistic goals do nothing for your bottom line. Middle management REALLY needs a good look.

    Pros

    Complete corporate experience including training and follow-up training, which is lacking in many companies today.

    Cons

    Archaic bi-yearly review process. Imagine this...., a peer review whereby your boss, your bosses boss, and other dept. heads, if avail.(?) come to view a quick presentation by yourself demonstrating your actions or lack thereof over the course of the last several months. In theory, a good way to keep everyone on their toes and "real". The reality, however, is something which goes beyond dignified and into the realm of a by-gone era with a military leaning hierarchy complete w/ poignant comments. Which in some circles, could be considered questionable conduct, morally and ethically. Witnessed people crying and being verbally assaulted in comparison to children's antics. Funny, never saw one HR representative attached to a compete review day.(?) Interesting???....Needless to say, one is "reviewed" either positively or negatively, and "others", not including your peers, are allowed to comment as well. However, please note, one is not allowed to review "others", nor comment on their performance. There is a smaller review at the end of the year which is a one on one with your Mgr., however, it's more or less based upon the two earlier reviews and a side note on a possible raise. Not a job for the faint of heart or a person wanting to be treated as such.
