    I worked at Nestlé

    Pros

    Good benefits for the employees. Better benefits for supervisors and managers. Just starting to train their potential leaders. Severance packages are generous but not a fault. There was room for personal growth for those that took responsibility for it and their actions. Safety is the priority. To the point of using handrails. Leaders are given some slack to create and they are held accountable for their promises.

    Cons

    Some of the KPI's are misplaced creating a silo-ed affect. Not all of the companies with Nestle USA are at the same point in their approach to leadership and quality. Frontline employee come second to management. Some frontline jobs are not up to industry standards but this is based on that companies ability to earn money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Double check your placement of KPI's. If a section of division does not perform a function they should not be responsible for the KPI.

    I have been working at Nestlé full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexitime, international, freebis ie coffee

    Cons

    Management in Orbe is based on bullying staff, management is taking no responsability and blaming people below them with a great self-satisfaction at destroying them. So called "leaders" are just pathetic monsters. In a nutshell, want to be a great loser in your life, be a manager in Orbe!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up: stop bullying! This is your moral duty!

    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.
