    I worked at Nestlé full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic work life balance, they give you a lot of time to spend with family. No phone calls when home. Weekends mean weekends. Very good culture of learning, training and cultivating leadership. A lot of responsibility is given. Coaching is required when required.

    Cons

    Slow, sometimes painfully slow due to bureaucracy. There are long procedures to get little unimportant stuff also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out the steps. Keep the employee morale high. Promote based on performance and not tenure.
