    Pros

    Nestle offers great benefits and there is always enough work to go in for overtime. They also give out bonus's to those who reached or exceeded the efficiency requirements.

    Cons

    Sometimes it may seem like you have no life because of the amount of mandatory hours they make you work.

    Pros

    Great brands. Great company but after of years been a great leader on frozen division. They just letting the competition to take over. Stouffer's red boxes almost reduce to minimum due to new plannograms , i am not surprise that the DC centers will have issues.

    Cons

    Old management , old ideas, 101 train or 102 train very poor .
    Rw3 system great tool.
    NROC got not a clear direction because the old management refuse to accept new methods.
    Most of the retail managers are just. The " yes " person .
    Nestle management not getting the real bone of the sales .
    Everyone goes with the flow . " Dont hear don't speak Don't see evil " otherwise your PDG review won't gonna look good .
    Nestle management on Glendale Ca ... remind me like the USA congress . Everybody knows everyone. Basically Paul buckle and new CEO Paul Grimwood are against the old politics. It will take a major move like Mike Mitchell did several years ago.
    Last year nestle sales went up 12 % , but sooner or later investors gonna start asking questions , the bubble is gonna explode on their face.

    Advice to Management

    Back on year 1990 with only 125 sales professional persons reach the sales goals.
    Now year 2014 with almost 525 sales sales professional in the field are only breaking even on sales goals .

    A good European company but not as nice to its USA employees since most of their 330,000 employees are located in Europe

    Pros

    Line level management was good to work with, however there was little structure to the organization. As a shift manager, it was more important to put out fires that occurred during the shift, rather than to meet any organizational goals long term.

    Cons

    Human resources was very antagonistic to supervisors and above. Instead of supporting management decisions, HR would act as an employees advocate, even when there was blatant and egregious violations of policy. Numerous times, HR generalists would form friendships and romantic entanglements with frontline employees, and would then shield them from any type of performance counseling

    Advice to Management

    Although the company states work life balance is important, it does little to encourage this among salaried employees. Supervisors and above were expected to always be on call, and even when assigned to a shift, mandatory meetings would be scheduled opposite this.
