    Pros

    Great international experience spanning many different cultures. Hands on experience working as part of cross functional project teams. Challenging and rewarding work - great professional satisfaction with many trusted colleagues and friends.

    Cons

    The organisation is large and often internally complex with multiple stakeholders. So achieving alignment sometimes comes as the sacrifice of speed. However the pros outweigh the cons by far.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps collapse some of the internal overlapping structures of globally managed business, geography and product to ensure speed and quick alignment. Overall however it was a pleasure to work for such a giant in the FMCG industry.

    Pros

    Great company culture, leading products, values its employees, strong leadership

    Cons

    Moves slowly since it's a big company. If you're looking for a small, entrepreneurial environment this isn't the place for you, though there is appreciation for risk and innovation within one's area.

    Pros

    great environment, people are nice and very easy to get along with and work with. Benefits are good, and pay is good.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is ok, its hard to walk away from your work at the end of the day. you often have a lot on your plate. Corporate environment also is difficult to work in at times, as there is a lot of paper work, forms, and red tape to get through and it feels at times you are trying to jump thru hoops.

    Pros

    The multicultural environment is very motivating.
    Good food and prices and unbeatable views from the restaurant...
    Internal job offers -> possibility to change location easily
    Good Salary

    Cons

    location -> vevey is a small town with many people working for Nestlé, so you will often bump into a colleague outside of work.
