    Pros

    Great experience & you feel that you are really working in an international company carrying international brands. Working for Nestle is like working within a school. You get a lot of trainings within the company where usually depending on the department, you get space to make mistakes which becomes part of your learning & gaining experience process.

    Cons

    Sometimes senior level management depending on the business unit or department you are working for can cause problems by making sudden changes or decisions. Compared to other companies I was working for there was a little lack of competition to keep you going. Also there is a lot of bureaucracy involved if your work is related to working with other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the bureaucracy involved between departments.
