    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Marysville, OH

    - Most people are nice to work with.

    Cons- Confidentiality regulations make interdepartmental communication and collaboration difficult
    - One part of the building is almost always being renovated and no one is ever really sure why.

    Exhausting

    District Sales Leader (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people were great, the work kept you busy and the ability to own what you do was fabulous.

    ConsLow pay for the work you do, advancement is based on relationships not your body of work and the expectations are unrealistic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and give all internal employees the ability to interview for open positions that they qualify for.

    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
